Are you familiar with the Tasmanian Devil? When he’s in hurricane form and all you see are legs, arms, and body parts flying around? Yeah, that’s Kristen. But underneath her hurricane is a calm project manager sending deadlines, gantt charts, and politely stern emails to vendors and suppliers. And just like Taz in the early 90’s, she’s straight up everywhere. Have you seen the list of non-profits she works with, or the number of contacts she has? In the world of marketing, that’s the type of person you want managing your campaigns – a calm center in the marketing storm.
Dan’s wife loves football but would rather not watch it with him. He keeps rewinding the darn game. And he’s not rewinding to relive a great touchdown run or an explosive hit. It’s cause he’s “trying to read the defense” and “studying the play design”. He loves the strategy. Dan’s wife rolls her eyes as he says, “see this play, here’s the QB’s read. If the free safety comes up: post to Davis; and if the free safety follows Davis, then dig route to Crabtree. Simple, brilliant, and effective”. His love of strategy bleeds into the business world. His goal is to provide clients with solutions and strategies that are simple, brilliant, and effective.

When it comes to design, Shawna has seen it all! From creating logos and branding packages to laying out an 80 page magazine, she’ll be sure the finished product not only looks fantastic, but is also done on time and on budget. With her extensive experience in printing and production she’s a self proclaimed “design dork” who geeks out over packaging at the grocery store, saves junk mail for inspiration, and usually has Pantone books her in purse… just in case! When Shawna isn’t busy making clients look good, she’s teaching graphic design at University of the Pacific, doing yoga, or living the #momlife with her two energetic boys.
