LogDNA New Hire Gif Divya Hillier
LogDNA is excited to welcome Divya Hillier as our first Head of Growth!
We asked her some important questions…

What were you doing previously?

I ran SEO for Udacity! Prior to that I managed SEO & Content for emerging markets at eBay Classifieds. Shout out to Gumtree!
What city are you originally from?

I’m local! I grew up in Saratoga, California.
What is your favorite food, drink, or restaurant?
I love great food, but I don’t necessarily have a favorite…it depends on the minute
Drinks – Coffee / Wine / Whisky
Fave Restaurants – Naschmarkt, Arcadia, Taqueria Veracruzana
What’s your favorite flavor of cake? 
Lemon or Vanilla. Or literally any kind of pie.
What do you like to do for fun?
Drink wine and find new ways to harass my two dogs and one baby.
If you could instantly pick up a superhero power, what would it be?

Instantly ignite things by pointing at them. Not fireballs or anything, just, “IGNITE!” “IGNITE!” Feels very multipurpose.

What’s an interesting fact about you that people wouldn’t guess?

I have a self published children’s book that I wrote and illustrated because I couldn’t find one I liked enough to give as a gift to babies. I have since found tons of books I love, but mine seems to really appeal to the 2-year-old crowd.
I didn’t know anything about writing a book, formatting it for print, or submitting it to a printer. Or book shapes, or dimensions, the list really goes on. I also didn’t know anything about kids so did NOT design a board book. Lots of learnings for next time! (scene from my book below).
I’m also really scared of clowns.
