Hey, I’m Caroline West, a twenty-something currently living in Des Moines. On the weekends I am usually traveling back to my hometown in Minneapolis, MN or up at my cabin in Minong Wisconsin.

My Career

I am a Drake University Senior and will be graduating this May with a Bachelor’s of Science in Marketing. Originally, I am from Minneapolis, MN. Since February of 2018, I have been employed as an SEO Analyst for Meredith Corporation in Des Moines, IA. Some of the key publications I supports are Better Homes and Gardens, Real Simple, Martha Stewart, People, and Entertainment Weekly. I a member of the American Marketing Association, and a founding member of the Drake University Women in Business Organization.  While at Drake, I’ve been a part of the Drake Cheer team and Drake University Sports Marketing Staff. After graduation, I hope to continue a career in digital marketing and SEO.

I have always taken a great interest in all things related to food, fitness, fashion, interior designing, as well as living a healthy well-balanced life. Because of this, working at Meredith was the perfect fit for me. Not only have I been surrounded with images of the best interior designers, cook books, test kitchen food, and photo shoots that make me want to become the next Martha Stewart, but I have fallen in love with the ever changing world of SEO and digital marketing. This being said, my website is an extension of my interests and what inspires me to be who I am.


A few things you should know about me are that I love traveling and trying new things. The past few years I have lived in Paris for a summer, visited Italy, the South of France, New Zealand, Brazil, and stayed busy visiting my friends in the U.S. I am often found exploring aesthetically pleasing coffee shops and new restaurants around the Midwest many which can be found on my Instagram, caroline.e.west. In addition to exploring the Midwest, I have to say it is the home of some of the best hiking trails. My family dog can attest to that…and that we both have a strong passion for CHEESE.

From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU for stopping to check out my website. Don’t be a stranger! Let’s connect on social media.
