Kris Camacho joined the Hive Digital team as an SEO Analyst in 2016, and has been working to develop a social media service offering for the company. She fell in love with marketing when she became a part of her high school’s marketing club, DECA, where she competed at the international competition. This encouraged her to study strategic communications throughout her undergraduate experience at UNC Chapel Hill in the School of Journalism and Mass Communications. While there, she interned with the UNC Women’s Basketball team to help lead a seminar on player social media presence.
Kris finds passion in working with children. She regularly volunteered at her local Boys & Girls Club in high school, where she tutored kids and started a cheer-leading program. She also worked as a camp counselor at the YMCA and as a children’s gymnastics instructor.
Kris had many positive role models herself as a kid who inspired her to follow her dreams, and she hopes that by acting as a youth mentor, she can make a positive impact on at least one young life.
Upon completing her B.A., she continued her education at East Carolina University, where she obtained her Masters in Business Administration. She worked as a graduate assistant at ECU, which gave her the opportunity to work alongside a renowned social media marketing professor who wrote the first ever textbook on the subject. Kris then completed an internship that allowed her to manage social media accounts for one of the biggest restaurants in her home town, and taught a social media marketing class to undergraduate students. She is a Hootsuite certified professional and she believes that social media is the future of marketing.
When not working, Kris enjoys spending time on the water and doing outdoor activities. Her family has a house at Lake Gaston where she frequently visits on weekends. She is also a huge sports fan, and enjoys cheering on both her Alma Maters and watching NFL football.
