I’m Amber Peterson-wife, mom and Pinterest expert. I have had a long entrepreneurial road that has resulted in the create of Pinwheel Strategic Marketing. I have grown two businesses in the wedding industry using the marketing techniques that we offer to our clients. It is such a pleasure to help other businesses get more visibility and revenue through content and Pinterest Marketing.
My Industry Background
I started my wedding planning company, Cheers Wedding Planning & Design in 2009 after having my first daughter. I loved the creative outlet and challenge wedding planning offered me. In 2013 I founded the Skagit Wedding Society, a small group for wedding professionals to meet and collaborate on wedding, styled shoots and promoting Skagit County, WA as a premier wedding destination. In addition to connecting wedding professionals with one another, the Skagit Wedding Society also produces the annual Skagit Wedding Tour.
My Professional Background
In addition to working in the wedding industry since 2009, my background and education is in marketing. I graduated from the University of Alaska Fairbanks with a BA in Public Relations in 2003. In 2007 I earned my Masters of Science in Integrated Marketing Communication from Roosevelt University in Chicago, IL. During graduate school, I held an internship with the Chicago Merchandise Mart and after graduation, we relocated to the Pacific Northwest where I accepted a Marketing Director position.
I married my high school boyfriend in 2003 and we have three brilliant daughters. We love taking advantage of all the Pacific Northwest has to offer. From hiking and camping to wine tasting there is no shortage of things to do in this beautiful state.
