151208_HamletGroup&Headshots05Mandy (Boyle) Pennington is a writer, marketer, and all-around nice girl with a passion for storytelling.

She’s the Director of Internet Marketing at Net Driven.

When she’s not optimizing websites and making things search-friendly, she’s an active blogger. She slings posts in a few places, including Search Engine People, a search engine community blog. Guest writing is her thing, so if you’d like for her to write for you, send her a note! She’d love it!

She’s a co-founder (with @mhryvnak, @darlingstewie, and @karla_porter) of Northeastern Pennsylvania’s only blogging and social media conference: NEPA BlogCon. If you haven’t checked it out yet, you most definitely should.

She also flexes her creative muscles as a member of The New Vintage Ensemble.

Performing Arts + Blogging + SEO + Nice Things = <3

She bakes a mean cupcake, loves high fives, and was one of the co-organizers of Pecha Kucha Night Scranton. She’s a past storytelling alumni from Scranton StorySlam and stays pretty active in NEPA. You’ve probably seen her at First Friday or elbow deep in a porketta sandwich at La Festa.

She resides in Scranton with her main squeeze and photographer extraordinare, Brent Pennington, and a talkative cat named AnnaBelle Leigh Boyle-Pennington.

She is inspired daily by the mothers in her life, Leslie Knope, and Liz Lemon.
