We’re Vicki McLeod and Wendy McClelland, two Social Chicks with a passion for strategic marketing, communications and PR with panache. Plus, we just LOVE social so we’re advocates for all things social and engaging – in business and in life!
The Social Chicks are all about social media education, mentorship and training. Both of us have our own businesses, and we partner up and collaborate to keep our clients and communities connected. We know there is an overwhelming amount of information out there about the ever-changing world of social media. We help each other stay up-to-date, and we help you stay up-to-date, too.
We’re riding on the coattails of Lori Graham and Rebecca Vaughan, two of the founding Chicks and great all-round peeps! We get tons of loving support from Kathy Irwin, AdminChick who keeps everything running smoothly.
