Joelle Pittman of Memphis Yelp will speak to #SocialJ 4/23

Joelle Pittman of Memphis Yelp will speak to Dr. Brown’s social media class April 23 at 5:30pm in Meeman 206.

Joelle is none other than a former #SocialJ student herself and a fellow MA student here at the U of Memphis.  She parlayed her hard work in this class into a pretty cool gig where she gets to visit lots of fun Memphis places and hang out with interesting people. She’s back by popular demand after being rated as best speaker by last year’s social media class.

Her blog, Mem to Lax, has been featured by BlogHer.
