Allie Van WagonerCo-Founder & CEO
Hi, I’m Allie and I love our local DFW community! I’ve worked with hundreds of local business owners and marketing professionals in the Dallas Fort Worth metroplex helping them share their brand stories online. I was born in Dallas and grew up in the metroplex, and DFW is where I have chosen to raise my 4 children. Accidental influencer, I have partnered with start-ups, small businesses, and global brands. Some of the brands I have worked with are Coca-Cola, General Motors, Chevrolet, Texas Beef Council, Tillamook, Firehouse Subs, Subway, and Mrs Baird’s. You may have seen me on the Dallas Morning News, CBS Local, Kids Activities Blog, and Tasty Kitchen. I have covered events such as the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Time to Play Spring Showcase in New York City, and Coca-Cola Live Positively Conference for Women in Atlanta. I can’t wait to learn more about your business!
