Jackie Vetrano fell into higher education marketing by accident.

Vetrano stays in touch with higher education marketers across the country by working as an editor for Link, the online journal for higher education web professionals, and co-host and producer of the Higher Ed Social Podcast. In her free time, she is usually eating all-you-can-eat sushi, posting photos of her cat to Instagram or running, but not at the same time.
