Kristen is founder and CEO of Engage Target Media and according to her mother, a professional liar.
From the moment she could talk, it’s been about using stories in the most creative ways possible to shape opinions. From what we can gather, most of those stories existed as an escape attempt to some trouble she managed to find herself in by placing blame on her bother… or the dog…. or aliens.
With her well-practiced storytelling skills, everyone was sure she was destined to be a lawyer, or famous prison author. However, by accident, she stumbled into the Journalism and Public Relations department at Arkansas State University and found a new way to use storytelling to shape opinions and actions around companies and their message.
After several years working in public relations and crisis communications for Fortune 100 companies, it was time to bring all the lessons together and launch Engage Target Media.
No matter the size or shape of your business, there is a story to tell. And no matter what that story is, we promise you, Kristen is ready to tell it in ways that you never dreamed possible.

Dan knew, or we should say thought, from an early age he was gifted. After all, he is so bright his dad always called him “son.” When he is not working, you can usually catch him with his family. A father of two young daughters, his kids give him a reason to act like a kid again. And at night, chances are he is watching movies and reciting every line, driving his wife crazy in the process.
Prior to working at Engage Target Media, Dan spent 10 years working in a variety of Marketing, Consultation and Customer Service roles and enjoyed every moment of it. He loves to meet new people and hear their story. And tell a few of his own.
