Get To Know Us
CEO & Cultivator of Happiness
Inspired by the success of his father and grandfather, our fearless leader, Nick Footer, was born with a fiery, insatiable drive to do one thing and one thing only: become a Business Badass. Ever since the ripe old age of 8, Nick Footer aspired to build his own company from scratch and by god did he do it. Before he could get his hands on the wheel of what would soon become one of Portland, Oregon’s up and coming digital marketing agencies, he had to face his biggest challenge yet: b u s i n e s s s c h o o l.
A powerhouse in the business world, the man, the myth, the legend Nick Footer obtained not one, not six, but TWO whole business degrees: a BA and an MBA, with focuses in Digital Marketing, Entrepreneurship, Business Strategy, and Bein’ a Heckin’ Boss.
Like to a siren in the Aegean Sea, Nick was drawn to the edge of the world… of marketing… search engine marketing to be exact. The year is 2010, and our dear future captain climbed aboard Anvil Media and worked his way up to a business development role. Years went by and Nick worked day and night to become a master of search marketing. Once he became the master, he split off to form his own company: Intuitive Digital.
Nick is passionate about many things—mainly the Red Sox and bad jokes—but mostly giving back to his clients, providing high-quality services, and working with amazing teams.
VP of Operations
A native of Portland with a BA in Political Science from the University of Oregon (go DUCKS) and an MBA in Finance from Concordia University, this man is exactly the kind of person ID needed to run our office like a rocketship aimed at success. Years later, he’s still here (he must’ve liked it or something) and even though he doesn’t know what the heck an SEO is or how many PPCs can fit in a breadbox, man this guy is an ace in the hole when it comes to administration, finance, and HR.
When he’s not playing zookeeper, he loves taking long walks with his wife and adopted pup from the Oregon Humane Society. Dan is very passionate about traveling and boy if you’re goofing off, he will talk to you about airline rewards until you start working again. He’s been to all habitable continents but hopes to make it to Antarctica one day.
VP of Partner Services
Anish is a digital marketing veteran. With years of experience in creating and managing digital content, Anish is our go-to for building relationships with our clients and producing top quality work.
A graduate of Portland State University, Anish holds a degree in Business and has spent the majority of her career servicing small businesses. Before joining Intuitive Digital, Anish spent almost six years owning her own web and graphic design firm.
A creator by nature, Anish is our VP of Partner Services. She’s our resident “Cool Office Mom”, whether you need a sounding board for new ideas, or someone to remind you to recycle, she’s a friend and mentor to all in our office.
When Anish isn’t creating new websites, implementing new strategies or cultivating happiness, you can find her at the rally races with her husband, loving on her pup Elsa Bean, or traveling to a Ducks game.
PS – She really is as great as she sounds.
Director of Digital Services
Devon was born but not raised in Portland, and at the ripe age of toddler moved to Walla Walla, Washington where she grew up alongside wine and onions.
She graduated college right as Twitter, Facebook and Google AdWords were becoming a thing, so she decided to make a career out of testing and learning new platforms as they emerged. With 10 years experience, she has worked on some of the most iconic brands around including Wildfang, Columbia Sportswear, Hydro Flask, and Oregon Brand Chainsaws. She now specializes in ecommerce, product marketing, paid search, paid social, Google shopping, and analytics, but is really just here to party.
Director of Marketing and Branding
Alysha was raised but not born in Portland, and her east coast sensibilities often emerge in a contentious game of Celebrity. She graduated with her Bachelor’s degree in English with a Minor in Writing from Portland State University. For four years she ran the marketing department in-house for a medical clinic, doing everything from project management and content creation to working directly with partners.
Alysha is passionate about understanding and cultivating brand identities, helping businesses share their story with the public through marketing. She loves hitting the hiking trails around Portland with her family, checking out the newest brewery in town, or talking a friend into seeing a show at the Crystal Ballroom with her.
Denying her Floridian past, Lauren is a PNW girl at heart and can’t get enough of Portland itself. She earned her bachelor’s degree in Anthropology and Communications from University of Florida and has a deep love of understanding human behavior, but her career focus has now turned to the incredible world of Digital Marketing and PPC Strategy.
After work and on weekends, you can find her snuggling her two pit-bulls (Stella and Mr. Gabe), walking to dinner (or brunch, or lunch), trying new ciders or going to music shows around town.
An east coast transplant, Max was born and raised in the greater Washington D.C. area. He graduated with a bachelors degree in International Business and Minor in Marketing from King’s College. After several tours of teaching English and Economics abroad, Max returned to the states to focus his efforts on small business operations. His experience in eCommerce and website optimization introduced him to the world of SEO and digital marketing.
A travel junkie, soccer fanatic, and craft beer enthusiast, Max can usually be found on the local soccer pitch or tuning into premier league games. On weekends he enjoys hiking, snowboarding, and exploring his new home in the Pacific Northwest. He’s currently on a mission to find the best Thai restaurant in Portland.
For years, Piper was totally OK with just being a musician until they realized that “tickling the keyboard” was a lot like “tickling the ivories” (we’ll trust them on this one). They’ve since taken a fancy to making apps and websites for any and all. 5 years later, they find the most joy in working with small businesses to help turn their vision into a beautiful and functional online reality.
Piper obviously came to Intuitive to work with the coolest, nicest people around. They haven’t run away, yet, which is a huge plus but only time will tell.
They’re an honest to goodness miracle worker when it comes to internet flapdoodle. When they’re not pulling websites out of literal thin air, they enjoy skipping town with their partner or exploring the wilderness with their lively (read: domineering) pup, Sprout. They can whistle with the best of ‘em, but they cannot snap. Don’t try to teach them. Seriously.
Leila moved from Phoenix, Arizona to the Pacific Northwest in 2018. As a desert dweller for most of her life, Leila loves living in Portland for all of its many seasons from the rainy, muddy springs to the cool, cozy autumn months.
Leila graduated from Arizona State University with a bachelor’s in journalism and a master’s degree in mass communication. She quickly discovered that her passion for storytelling was the perfect launching point for a career in digital marketing.
With six years of experience in marketing strategy, Leila specializes in multichannel paid campaigns. She takes pride in bringing her organization skills, positive attitude, and enthusiasm for learning to every project she tackles.
When she’s not working, you can find Leila walking her black lab pup Lucy, looking for new reads at Powell’s Books, or exploring new trails in Forest Park.
Having lived everywhere from NYC to Casa Grande AZ, KCMO, and the list goes on – Brittany is excited to be a new resident of the incomparably beautiful PNW. She graduated Magna Cum Laude from New York University – with a Major/Minor in English & American Literature and Creative Writing.
She took her creative and detail-oriented approach into digital advertising and has been in the online media / marketing industry for over 8 years. Brittany has worked on paid media, SEO, organic social, website updates, copywriting, handled project management, and more.
When not obsessing over KPIs and account performance, you can find Brittany exploring Portland and the surrounding area, knitting, crafting, reading, playing too many board/card games – and spending time with her friends, family, and cat – Harvard.
Born and bred in the far-off land of Massachusetts*, Andrea developed a passion for all things digital marketing, brand strategy and aggressive driving (for both web conversions and motor vehicles) during her time at Emerson College. After graduating with a B.S. in Marketing Communications, Andrea focused on expanding her digital gambit by working freelance, in-house, agency-side and with non-profits. Her background and love of using her expertise to empower SMBs is what brought Andrea to the hypothetical doors of Intuitive Digital.
If she’s not at her desk working on the next best thing for an Intuitive Digital partner or heads down in a huge bowl of data, then she’s off somewhere with her two pitbulls, Max and Deacon, drinking a stout at a pub, or dancing at a concert venue.
( *Warning: She is still sensitive abouther breakup with Tom Brady.)
Born and raised in sunny Los Angeles, Jess has a B.A. in Biology from the University of California – Santa Barbara and is ecstatic about her move up the beachy coast to Portland. After realizing that Pharmacy wasn’t her true calling, Jess discovered the ever-amazing world of marketing. As someone who is motivated by helping others, it was only natural that she chose SEO, where she can think creatively and analytically to help businesses get found by their target audience.
Outside of work, Jess, a passionate globetrotter and wine-enthusiast, can be found lifting weights at the gym, going to concerts and festivals, eating potato chips, or walking her highly energetic English springer-Australian cattle dog, Bella.
Born in France, Marion made Portland her home in 2015. It’s her studies in International Business at the Kedge Business School (in Marseille, France) that brought her to the United States.
Digital marketing is her world; ever-changing, disruptive, and sometimes puzzling.
She fell in love with paid search and paid media when she realized that they could be a force for good. As a Digital Analyst, nothing makes her happier than helping her partners & making their digital dreams come true. For real, she will make your company’s mission her own. Her favorite things about working at Intuitive Digital are the collaborative & mindful environment and the fun spirit that is instilled in everything that we do.
Clichés are sometimes true and in true French fashion, Marion is a foodie and wine lover…a bon vivant! The twist is… it’s gotta be vegan! 😉 Outside of work, she can be found climbing a mountain with her husband Rob and her two pups (Moxy & Nova), biking around her neighborhood, shopping & supporting local businesses (there’s always room for another plant or pair of shoes, right?), dreaming about owning a house and a garden, or planning her next post-pandemic trip abroad.
Hailing from the Buckeye State, Yitzchak cultivated a passion for hospitality before falling in love with the wondrous world of marketing—a love that eventually brought him to a digital marketing agency in San Francisco. Through trial by fire, he sharpened his eye for unearthing data-driven insights that result in better leads and more conversions.
He moved on to deliver freelance marketing services that more closely aligned with his values—a path that culminated in his becoming Brand Director of a non-profit. After stewarding this position for some time, the siren song of service beckoned him to his current role at Intuitive Digital.
When not at his desk doing right by our partners, you’ll most likely find Yitzchak reading at a cafe or on a hike getting lost for the fun of it.
Elsa Bean is our professional office dog; arguably the most important position in the company (Nick, byeeeee). She loves long walks around the building as long as it’s not too cold or too wet… or too cloudy—she’s from California after all. She may love a good garbage sniff here and a belly rub there, but she’s definitely a “nap directly behind your chair so you can’t escape” kinda gal. Let’s be real, she’s basically a cat. Elsa hates long meetings (honestly who doesn’t), but as a working dog, she does have business cards just in case a partner needs to reach her. When mom steps out for a moment, Elsa stares longingly out of the window… waiting… wondering. She wonders of many things, but most importantly she wants to know if that food is up for grabs. Me, too, Elsa… me, too….
Queen of the office
Squiggles is the self-proclaimed queen of the office. Some say she’s a palm tree. Others say she’s a grass. She is neither. She spends most of her day glaring at our CEO through her metaphysical eyes as he ignores her silent commands. “You must bow before your superior and omniscient being—I am SQUIGGLES,” she screams without falter. She watches as we mere mortals toil away over our inconsequential work—she scoffs at the struggles of the human condition. “I am eternal. Our time will come.” She will bear the apple that poisons man once again… as soon as she figures out how to walk.
