Curious what it’s like to work together? Great question! Here's what some good people have to say about it.
Wendy TeagueCreative DirectorSupernatural & Poo~Pourri
Wes was phenomenal at helping us with our product launch and rollout. Launches will always be a scramble in some sense, but she is a freaking godsend. I appreciate her! Wes allowed our team to step back and really think about what direction we should be heading in. Because of her thoughtful approach re: strategy and systems, we saved months from running around in circles. We were all able to confidently drive towards the same goal and grow our brand.

Wes is a genius when it comes to crafting messaging and targeted stories. Her strategy in marketing and honing in on impact are second to none. I trust her immensely.
Alex PeckCreative DirectorSeth Godin Production
Wes sees what’s possible, then translates that vision into creative solutions that create lasting value for an organization. You want her on your team, not your competitor’s.
Pascal FinetteCo-founderRadical Ventures, Singularity U's Chair Entrepreneurship & Open Innovation
Wes is one of the few marketers I have met who has the mind of an engineer (and believe me – I have met many people in my time at Mozilla, Google, SU Ventures and beyond). She is logical, systematic, and brings rigor to a topic that is sometimes seen as fuzzy. I would hire her in about 1/10th of a millisecond. Seriously.
Geralyn VillaflorCo-founderSammy and Claire Wharton MBA
Wes opened my eyes to the idea that a negotiation doesn’t have to be a battle of logic. Initially, I was worried about what I should say and nervous about getting thrown off. Now, I can stay present in the conversation and still get my point across–even without notes. Wes is very good at what she does. She knows her field inside and out, and understands the complexities of difficult conversations when the stakes are real. When you have an important conversation you need to get right, Wes should be your go-to.
As a technical founder, I was initially skeptical of marketing. Wes helped us see that a great product isn’t enough. We needed a clear story to help customers and investors understand our technology. If you need clear messaging about why your product matters, you need to work with Wes.
Wes managed to get to the essence of my dilemma so I could make a smart decision for what was best for my company. It was extremely helpful to hear what my blind spots were in terms of marketing fundamentals. In combination with her concrete suggestions, it helped me to build a new mental model for how my team will approach marketing.

Wes is a true industry leader. With passion and deliberate decision-making, she propelled our marketing strategy to new limits. She inspired us to challenge norms, yet remained conscious of industry trends.
Sarah Kathleen PeckExecutive DirectorStartup Pregnant
Wes helped me brainstorm new and creative ways of accomplishing my goal that I would never have come up with on my own. The result? We came up with a great strategy for making the podcast a more interactive experience and the project was a huge success. People who need to think in creative, focused ways about how to achieve their goals, specifically in marketing and in strategic planning, would benefit from working with Wes.
Greg FitzgeraldFounder, CEOventureSTEM
Wes offers a focused, practical perspective on how to position your product. She takes the black magic out of growth, so you skip past the hype and cut straight to what works.
George PapanastasatosCo-founderOrganic Gemini
When I first heard of Wes, I had the wrong impression that she was like an agency–that she would tell us ‘do this’ or ‘don’t do that.’ We’ve had that before and it didn’t work. The agency didn’t know our business like we know our business. Instead, Wes taught us how to think, and it was up to us to fill in the blanks. Wes had a completely different approach that was a more long-term way to handle our marketing and product launch needs ongoing. If we had her knowledge a year ago, we would have saved a lot of time and money. My only regret is I wish we had worked with her sooner.
Yuki HanyuCEOIntegriculture Inc
I took lots of notes during Wes’ session because it was extremely valuable. I have been applying what I’ve learned from her, and I’m constantly positively surprised by the results. My team members (young and old) now have a much clearer picture of how to talk to customers and the media about our business and technology.

I was uncertain if working with Wes made sense for me, being that I have a full-time employer and a job that I love, in addition to my nascent online presence. But I realized a positive return on investment before our first real call thanks to her thorough and uniquely tailored prework. That alone was worth the price of admission.
Melyssa St. MichaelFormer VP of MarketingPoo~Pourri
Wes is one of the best I’ve ever worked with. I love how her brain works. She helped get our [supernatural] launch to a really good place.
I thought I knew marketing–until Wes started talking. I have never taken notes faster in my life and wish the session was recorded. Mind blown.
Dr. Stephanie HabifSenior Director, Behavioral SciencesTandem Diabetes Care
When our team was looking for a marketing expert for our upcoming product launch, Wes was the clear choice. We operate in a highly-regulated industry, and we needed someone who would avoid shortcuts that might damage our brand. Our launch team had a mix of 20 coordinators, managers, and senior leadership across four departments, and Wes’ powerful stories, exercises, frameworks, and analogies helped everyone get on the same page. The workshop was extraordinarily powerful and I highly recommend it.
