Hillary Meister has more than 20 years experience as a reporter, an online community manager and a content developer for a variety of multimedia and print companies, such as Flagpole, the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Modesto Bee, Turner Broadcasting, AccessAtlanta.com and Network Communications, Inc. (NCI). She advocates for building and nurturing online environments and pioneered creating vibrant, engaging communities before Facebook became a household name. While with NCI, she helped to build and maintain hundreds of WordPress websites for home design clients, real estate agents and apartment communities. Her higher-education career began with Georgia Gwinnett College as a Web author where she developed content and wrote for various areas of the website and managed the College’s social media channels.
She finds it interesting that she worked with the newest college to be built in 100 years and now works for a university celebrating their 100 year anniversary.
