She’s Tops: Top Drawer Creative’s Content & Community Strategist Is One of Marketing’s Top 30 Under 30.

August 29, 2012 by  Trellawny

In the world of social media, perhaps it’s personal that begets professional. Megan Siegel–aka @seagell–puts it all out there. Her personal social feeds a combination of wit, political charge and local leisure. Her informative and compelling professional social feeds have helped raise a lot of awareness and a lot of money.

Megan and 29 other young talents will get a chance to mix and mingle with those who nominated and actively support them; as well as congratulate each other at tonight’s Top 30 Under 30 gala being held at the CityLine Studios. “It’s always nice meeting people from Twitter in real life,” says Siegel, who admits to having followed many of her esteemed peers on Twitter for quite some time.

“I’m up there with lots of good people,” she says. And just how did she get up there? Megan joined us at Top Drawer Creative last fall. She’d been working as a web editor at Quarto and made a declaration to herself. She looked at what she was doing, specifically at what she disliked and then set the focus on what she really liked (and as it turns out is quite good at).“I need to make this my job,” she said.

And she did. After graduating university in Nova Scotia, Siegel saw the big metropolis as a steppingstone on a path that would lead her back home. Get a good job and bring the experience home. “That was the plan,” she says. But [lucky for us] plans change. “I’m never leaving Toronto. Ever.”

After celebrating at the Top 30 party, here is what Megan had to say.
