Marcellina grew up in a large family of varied personalities, and refined her intrinsic people skills working in restaurants and hospitality roles through high school and college. Her marketing career began as Promotions Director for her college radio station in 2003, helping to promote her favorite local bands on the side.
Witnessing the birth of internet marketing, while refining her skills in various industries such as retail, fashion, music, and education, allowed Marcellina a hands on learning experience as this marketing form developed into the primary customer acquisition tool it is today.
Marcellina’s career at Direct Placement, LLC began in 2013 when she was chosen to assist in establishing the Medford, OR office as the Marketing & Sales Manager. Her education, experience, and the additional knowledge gained in this role made Marcellina a natural choice to open the Charlotte, NC office in 2016 and head the account management team.
Marcellina’s industry accomplishments include Google AdWords Certification and Bing Ads Accreditation. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in the Arts of Communication with dual concentrations in Public Relations and Mediated Communication from North Carolina State University.
Marcellina enjoys spending quality time with her family, watersports, puzzles, reading, dancing, volunteering, and traveling in her downtime. She has visited every US state but Alaska, and hopes to see the Aurora Borealis in person one day.
