1. Create a table in a blank Google doc

Create a table in a Google Doc with 1 row and 2 columns.   You will do this by clicking Insert > Table > select 2 squares horizontally.

2. Insert your logo or headshot into the table

Move the center line to the left so that there is more space in the right table.  Click Insert > Image > Select your logo or headshot.

3. Add your info & social icons

Enter any and all information that you'd like included.  To add clickable links all you do is select the text or image that you'd like clickable, right click > select Link.  I have provided a downloadable file with social icons in light gray below.  You will save these to your computer and add these the same way you did your logo and adjust the size accordingly.
