When Katie first started working with us, she took the time to ask questions and listen first before making recommendations, which is a skill in very short supply in the consultant world.  She is organized, extremely flexible when plans get pushed off track, brings humility to the work, and has a sense of humor. And, although a consultant, she is clearly a member of our team. We would definitely recommend Urban Sherpa.

Executive Director, The Prosperity Agenda

Growing businesses need great marketing.

One of the toughest parts of a growing business is that you need sophisticated marketing help to move to the next level... but it's simply not feasible to bring in a marketing director with the type of experience you need. 

That's where we come in. We offer part-time strategy, advisory, planning, staff training and management, and execution, too, of course. We're your out-sourced marketing directors, and we're here to help you make the right decisions.

With almost a decade running marketing programs for small and medium companies under her belt (and a few startups thrown in as well), Katie understands the unique challenges, strategic concerns, and amazing opportunities of small budget marketing better than most. On her own time, she's an obsessive gardener (who doesn't need a new water feature?), trail runner, and the chief wrangler to her family's pack of dogs.
