Social Media Lead: Terra Walker Mrkulic
Terra Walker Mrkulić is a native of the Washington, D.C. area whose passion for politics first developed while volunteering for Senator Barbara Mikulski in high school. Who knew stuffing envelopes could be so transformative? Terra spent the early part of her career working in travel and education which gave her the opportunity to explore our world both domestically and internationally at great lengths. Ten years ago she transitioned her career into social media marketing, another personal passion. Now based in NYC, Terra is the Social Media and Content Marketing Director for one of the world’s largest media companies, and super-mom to the world’s funniest 7-year-old. In her “spare” time (ha!), Terra is grateful to connect like-minded people to our big beautiful wall by managing and growing our social presence through community engagement, content generation, and social strategy. Connect with Terra directly via @TerraIncognita.
