Steph Davidson

Marketing & Communications Specialist, Avid Life Media

BA English, 2006

Sometimes I wonder what undergrad me would think if I told her I work for one of the most infamous online dating companies in the world. I definitely could not have imagined my career path if I tried: from working in Residence Life at York, teaching English in South Korea, a post-grad in journalism, to a stint as a journalist at a national daily newspaper which turned into a role in PR at Ashley Madison. From there I started my own PR firm, launched a successful dating blog, and have since returned to Ashley Madison in a copywriting/marketing/communications role. I direct the tone and language of an international company - undergrad me would definitely be on-board for that.
