Jen Dodge knew when she met 8-year-old Koby at The Beaver County Ice Rink, that Koby would be an over achiever. “Koby was different than most of his peer hockey players. Don’t get me wrong, he was a goof ball like the rest of them, but was more mature than the other kids. He showed a mature wit in his sense of humor and most people missed his jokes.” By the time he was 12 he already had acquired his hockey officiating certification and reffed his first game in November 2007. “Mike and I have been talking about hiring him for two years or so and wanted to wait for the right timing. We are very excited for what he brings to the team.”
Koby Uhrig is joining J&M Strategic Consultants, Inc. as our Social Media Consultant. Koby has over two years of professional experience in managing social networks, and is pursuing a communications degree at Bowling Green State University. He provides our team with the necessary knowledge and experience to enhance J&M’s reach across all social media platforms.
