Hi! I am Sherri Hultner and I am the founder of EdmondActive and have lived in Edmond for almost two decades.
I started EdmondActive July 13, 2009, at Facebook, as a way to bring city information about all of Edmond into one place, then two weeks later I started Around Edmond blog here at the site July 24, 2009 as a way of starting the conversation as to what is happening around our town. Businesses throughout town thought I was wasting my time “playing around on the internet” and 98% of businesses didn’t want to waste their time or money being promoted on a media platform that resided in most residents hands at least 18 hours a day.
Over the last 12 1/2 years, I have been blessed to tell hundreds of local stories, and I have created effective powerful content that has helped hundreds of businesses well before the content creator and digital marketing job listings were created. I have 23 years experience as a publisher of local zines, a glossy 80 page magazine, distributed at a extremely high sell through on national newsstands of over 30%, and EdmondActive Magazine.
The main concentration of my work is with the EdmondActive social media networks. I am always available for consulting in this area. For the last 13 years I have been creating content and photography (except for the period during Covid) for locally owned businesses that helps businesses see feet through their doors, or helps each business stand out amongst their competition, exclusively in Edmond. The Edmond market isn’t easy to navigate successfully, and Edmond’s independent businesses require more than just a plug and play mentality from marketers. Normally, you’ll find me out weekly, procuring photos for the magazine, website and social networks, however these days, I am available to come out and take photos by appointment.
I help build social media followings, create photography that helps shine a positive light on your services or products, as well as tell your businesses story, within our magazine monthly, here at EdmondActive.com weekly, and daily at Facebook, Instagram and Twitter at @EdmondActive.
My only other goal with EdmondActive is to also shine a light on why Edmond is a great place to live and work, and to also to help residents connect with their local government’s process and to promote resident involvement, ultimately so that outside interests and new residents want to make Edmond their home and a place to which they want to invest.
I have been married for 31 years, and have lived in Edmond for just over a decade, have 2 adult sons whom I am very proud of who both also live and work in Edmond, and have been a dog mom to 4 labs, 1 shepherd lab, and a golden retriever – along with running a busy business, so I understand the plight of locally owned businesses who are trying to find the time to market their own businesses.
If you are a small business owner and would like to connect, you can contact me about advertising, social media content creation, or basic consulting by sending your inquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org

I office out of my home for the time being due to Covid, so if you’d like to set up a meeting to discuss what your business needs are, I would love to speak to you further! You can reach me Monday through Friday’s from 9-6 pm at 1-405-315-7325
