Jessica founded Hot Dog Marketing in 2012 after four years of working independently with small business owners. Her background in marketing for large businesses and educational companies provided her with the foundation she needed to make HDM the success it is today. As CEO, Jessica leads one of the nation’s leading branding and digital marketing teams and serves as a fraction CMO as needed for fast-growing service-based B2B businesses. She is highly empathetic and experienced in the many business challenges business leaders face as they move towards scaled growth. Because of that, she often becomes quick friends with and a trusted advisor to Hot Dog Marketing clients.
