Kristin Zinkl - Hubspot Specialist

Greetings everyone!! My name is Kristin Zinkl and I have been working in the marketing arena for the past 23 years and have seen it change drastically over that time. I graduated from California State University, Chico with a major in Business and minor in Marketing and decided to lean into the marketing side for a profession.

After graduating from college, I moved to Sydney, Australia with my dual citizenship and received my first marketing job. I eventually returned stateside and found myself working for Giant Bicycle, a bicycle manufacturing company. It was there I fully embraced being part of a lifestyle brand and spent the next five years coordinating marketing events, working race events, participating in company rides, and living the brand.

I eventually made my way to an organization focusing on improving the Environmental, Health, and Safety of their client organizations. It’s a mission I felt and still feel honored to be part of. I feel like there is a small part of what I do that helps ensure people return home from work the same way they arrived, and that’s something that makes me feel good about what I do.

It was at this company I started my journey with HubSpot and learned how to utilize this software tool to attract, engage and delight our customers. Almost 15 years later I am still an avid HubSpot user and have a great appreciation for how much easier it has made my life as a marketer over the years. I enjoy sharing my experience and knowledge with others and helping them utilize HubSpot within their own organizations.

It was also here that I met one of the original founding members of Seventh Scout, Rhodes Gibson, who I will always remember and cherish everything that he taught me. He was such a bright light and his passing has forever changed me. I’m grateful to be part of his legacy at Seventh Scout and hope the work I do honors him.

I’m excited to be part of this Seventh Scout team as a resource to help others grow.
