Gabby Hoffman Introduction:
Today we're talking with Conservative Media Strategist and Social Media Consultant, Gabriella "Gabby" Hoffman.
She graduated from UC-San Diego in June 2012 with a degree in Political Science and a minor in History.
Gabby may have graduated in 2012 but her political resume goes much farther back and is extensive. Her work has been mentioned from the Rush Limbaugh Show, Fox News and the Drudge Report to National Review and Politico.
Gabby most recently served as the Director of Media Relations for the Liberty Farm Festival and prior to that, she served as a Regional Coordinator at the Leadership Institute for 4 years.
Gabby and I have been friends f or a number of years and I continue to learn a great deal from her. Her personal story is awesome and she's got some great messaging and social media advice for us today!
