Maddie Devost
UVA Class of 2023

I had no idea what digital marketing even meant at the beginning of this course, and now I am performing backlink and site audits for Accenture and feel like I have gained a wealth of information that I plan on using in my work for my company, OODA Loop. I would not offer to do SEM/SEO for this company if I did not feel confident on the topic.
