Daltyn is a dynamic communications professional specializing in social media, web content, media relations, and food photography. She works and lives in downtown Chicago, trading in stargazing + the convenience of driving in Michigan for high-rises + good coffee in the city. Daltyn is a graduate of Grand Valley State University, and her top five strengths are Developer, Communication, Positivity, Includer, and Maximizer.
Social Media + Web Content
In the ever-changing world of social media, Daltyn stays atop the trends using major management tools like Iconosquare, Hootsuite, and reading articles from Social Media Week and other media outlets. There is – of course – no better teacher than experience, so she spends much of her time experimenting with new tools and features for Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat.
In a major market, Daltyn discovered a community of food writers, enthusiasts, and influencers to provide meaningful and engaging content about the food industry. She has secured placements in major media outlets, such as: Chicago Tribune, Chicago Magazine, Where Chicago, Modern Luxury, Redeye, Timeout Chicago, Plate Magazine, and Eater Chicago + Eater National.
Working with a team of chefs and food stylists, Daltyn has developed her skill of photography using a Nikon D5300. Most recently, she has begun exploring the use of manual functions to control lighting for interior and non-natural light photography. She enjoys taking photos of food and big-city architecture.
