What is DreaM Digital?
At the heart of DreaM Digital is a girl named anDREA Merritt (get it?!).
DreaM Digital was born from Andrea’s passion to help others achieve their business and personal goals.
Andrea’s career has been a varied journey that began in retail, took her into higher education, and most recently landed in the oil and gas industry. Along this seemingly arbitrary path, one thing has remained constant. In each of her roles, her experience and expertise with social media marketing, e-mail campaigns, website management, and other marketing tools helped drive the businesses to reach benchmarks and goals that ultimately led to success.
Having developed a passion for all things marketing and technology, Andrea decided it was time to branch out on her own: thus DreaM Digital was born!
Andrea is a native of Lakeland, Florida (hello, Publix and swans!) who came to Lakeland when she was six and left only to attend college at Florida State University (Go Noles!!) where she received her bachelor’s degree in merchandising. Later she spent a short stint on the west coast in St. Petersburg, Florida.
Ultimately, her love of family, friends, and framily (friends who are like family) along with the tight-knit community of Lakeland keep her here, where she has been involved in organizations such as EMERGE Lakeland, served on the board for PACE Center for Girls Polk, and earned an MBA from Florida Southern College.In her spare time, Andrea enjoys spending time with her husband, two kids (ages 1 and 3), getting her fitness game on, sipping on champagne, brunching and shopping with girlfriends, and being outdoors. Her favorite place of all is laying by a pool with a view of the ocean. Though being a mom of two toddlers has limited the amount of relaxing pool time available to her, this has perhaps given it a new place of appreciation in her life. Things that are rare are often like that. The less available something is, the more it’s appreciated when it comes around.
