My Digital Communications Career Journey

AnandaLeekeatBBSJ17Conference

My love affair with digital communications was born during my tenure at the Hamilton Securities Group, Inc.  While at Hamilton, I spearheaded the design and implementation of the firm’s intellectual property protection and contracts administration programs for Internet products and services. My expertise in these areas allowed me to serve as a team member on community venture capital transactions in underserved communities. I also built, maintained, and conducted team trainings on intellectual property, Internet promotions, and privacy.

My Hamilton experience launched my career as a business consultant who conducted trademark searches, prepared copyright registration and domain reservation applications, and provided legal disclaimer language for web sites, products, and services. It laid the foundation for my work as an online columnist for the women’s channel on NetNoir.com, a multimedia services company and website that focused on African American culture and lifestyle. I later tapped into my content creation skills to create blogs, podcasts, social media marketing strategies, and videos to market my art, books, coaching practice, and reiki and yoga services. As a result, I was able to utilize my expertise to design and manage the first-ever social media technical assistance and training program for over 25 affiliate agencies at the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI).

After leaving USCRI, I worked as a digital communications consultant, volunteered at the Obama White House and was recognized as a social media thought leader (see below), launched the first-ever social media and workplace mindfulness programs as Digital Communications Director at  Law Students in Court, and shared my social media expertise as a commentator on The Daily Drum, a radio program that airs on WHUR 96.3 FM. Currently, I serve as the Chief Social Media Officer at the Multicultural Media, Telecom and Internet Council.

From 2014 to 2016, I worked with the White House to provide social media storytelling at national conferences and events including the State of the Union, Arrival Ceremony for French President Francois Hollande, Tumblr Q&A session on education and college affordability, Spring Garden Tour Social, Conference on Aging, InstaMeet, United State of Women Summit, and South by South Lawn. In 2015, I advised the White House Chief Digital Officer Jason Goldman on digital engagement strategies.
