Grace is the Social Media Manager here at SixLAVA. She is no stranger to the digital world and loves to create imaginative content that tells a story.

Grace has found some amazing success on social media, and has even had several videos receive over 1,000,000 views. She focuses on developing material that generates excitement and intrigue in an audience, and keeps them coming back for more. When she isn’t filming videos and posting pictures, Grace loves to travel, especially if it’s to one of the Disney Parks. She will watch any and every 2000’s chick flick under the sun, and always has a half-finished craft tucked away somewhere that she’ll finish eventually.
