Lynda Galea

Senior Manager, Creator Ecosystem
Winter Park, US
I'm an Aussie expat that now calls Orlando, FL home. World travel enthusiast, constantly on the move having made my way around 30 countries over the last six years all in between college and holding down a full time job! I'm a travel blogger, lover of social media and a little bit of a nerd so it only made sense that I ended up working at IZEA... only after years of stalking the CEO via all social outlets possible and convincing him to sponsor my work visa! On May 25, 2012, with my life packed into only two suitcases, I hopped on a plane and moved to the USA - it was the best decision of my life... so far!

I'm the Influencer Ecosystems Manager here at IZEA. What does that mean exactly? Well, the Influencer Ecosystems team serves as the initial point of contact between our new influencers and our company – each team member is tasked with interacting, assisting and building relationships with new influencers. We connect our influencer network with the brands we work with to help them monetize their blog, twitter, YouTube and Pinterest streams via sponsored opportunities. We have completed over 3,235,964 sponsored opportunities to date and counting!
