Leah Rise – Director Search & Social

60 seconds with Leah Rise…

What does SEO mean to you?
SEO means power. Not only power to the businesses who have proper SEO practices in place but power to those who know how to implement them. The definition of SEO changes daily to bend and move with each new algorithm. And if that’s not power, I don’t know what is!Why does SEO appeal to you so much?
I suppose I’m a glutton for punishment. I like the challenge of trying to keep up with the Google Gods and take pride when I succeed. SEO is never monotonous and brings me a new challenge every day.

When you are not up to your elbows in keywords what do you do?
Most of my ‘extra time’ is devoted to my spoiled rotten Wolfdog, but any time left for me is spent with a book on the beach or out with friends.

Three things that make you tick?
First and foremost would be my faith, which I owe my greatest accomplishments to. Secondly would be caffeine, without which I would be a zombie and not a very pleasant person, I would imagine. Last, but not least, would be College Football that make Saturday’s in the Fall worth waiting for. Go Noles!

Favorite food?
Country-Fried chicken, home-made mash potatoes and green bean casserole!

If you could host a dinner with any three people, who would you choose and why?
As if you couldn’t tell my Southern (American) Pride just yet, I would have to answer this question with Bobby Bowden, Bear Bryant & Jimbo Fisher. Bowden & Bryant because they were two of the greatest College football coaches who ever lived and Jimbo Fisher so that he could learn from them and bring Florida State another National Championship.

If given the chance to skip work for a day, how would you spend the entire day?
I would load up my Wolfdog, Simba, and take him to the dog beach and let him swim all day while I sat on the beach and read my favorite book.
