Chavonne likes to believe she is a conscious individual. Her vocation brings her great delight as she tries to stay two steps ahead of technology. Her second love is the ocean. A true advocate for the oceans in this modern era of surplus plastic waste entering the ocean via our many Rivers. You will find her in the sun (or rain|) over weekends trying to prevent this with other volunteers. She enjoys keeping up-to-date with what Google has to offer. Her very special and diverse client portfolio who has been with her throughout the years can always benefit from the wealth of knowledge she has learned through experience and Google’s yearly exams/ new offers/ technology trends. She looks at your digital presence as a whole to offer you benefits, insights, and return on investment. Furthermore, she sits with her clients, looks at their whole digital presence online, and offers solutions in terms of Google Ads, Social Media, Video, & Image Advertising through Google Analytics.

Chante sticks herself to her clients and helps them ride the marketing waves as their business grows. She has a great respect for the ever advancing technological world and loves to advance with it. She spends her working hours designing, researching and implementing anything that can help your business grow. She spends more time on social media than she should, balancing her clients accounts and her personal love for Instagram. She loves throwing herself at any new digital challenges and has advanced herself to confidently assist her clients on Google Ads, WordPress, OTA’s and so much more.
