The Marketing Dame
Growing up in the hustle and bustle of the dot com era in Silicon Valley, California, Kersten has had a lifelong love affair with marketing. Being raised by small business owners gave her insight into the world of business and a passion for business strategy. After completing her undergraduate degree at Oral Roberts University, she went on to finish her MBA there as well in 2010. Over the years she has traveled to Africa multiple times, helping non-profit organizations sustain themselves through various business strategies and continues to volunteer her services.
Her passion for marketing and business strategy has only grown through her work with small business owners and local advertising; from working with agencies and multiple local businesses. It is this passion that drove her to create Speakeasy Market Strategies in 2012. Through the creation of this company, she is able to help businesses and follow her passion and lifelong dream of owning her own business.
As the 3rd year of business approaches, she has led teams of designers and professionals to create and execute strategies to grow her client businesses’, just take a look at some of their case studies here.
Outside of the office you will find her harboring her social media addiction, exploring downtown Tulsa, and training at her favorite boot camp classes. She lives by Ben Franklin’s famous quote, “Motivation is when your dreams put on work clothes.”
