Morgan Hicks

Visual Designer

Her intention is always to truly listen to and understand people—from their wants & needs to their dreams & desires. She is particularly good at helping people understand the blindspots they’ve had in business so that they can finally let go of feeling “stuck”.

Jennifer Ann Walsh

Web Developer

Jen establishes compelling online presences for movers and shakers on a mission. Whether a cause-driven organization, a forward-thinking entrepreneur, a world shaker, a wow maker or even a trouble maker, her mission is to create online experiences that wow audiences. She's been working on the web since the heady mid-90’s, first for Wired magazine and then at HotWired. When she's not busy dreaming & scheming for future world changers, she can be found planning a national park adventure or noodling around with music, plants and words.

Jess Manuszak


Hey! Jess is the copywriter who writes those ads you’ve seen for Nike. When she's not backdoor bragging about her 8+ years of conversion copywriting knowhow or dedicating best-selling novels to David Hasselhoff, you can find her sleeping with the lights on after marathoning movies about ghosts.

Helen Tremethick


Helen is the combination of a Pulitzer Prize winning wordsmith, a psychologist’s psychologist, a human centered designer, and a wizard.
