Meet the ThinkPod Team
Award-winning experts in all things digital marketing, web, and design.
We're a team of ROI-driven designers, doers, and thinkers who have been in the field for over 22 years. As a bonus, we think we're fun to work with. At ThinkPod Agency, we doodle and get excited while brainstorming. Ideas flow and plans are created.
*Disclaimer: We're not really sure about those numbers. We lost track a long time ago and just started making them up.

We’re a highly creative group of talented, highly specialized, and over-caffeinated industry professionals who love to turn experience, ideas, and data into lead-generating success for our clients.

Over 20 years ago, Aubrey turned a passion for web design and digital marketing into a small business. Her relentless drive and extraordinary talent for all things digital marketing has grown ThinkPod into an award-winning agency, but her success in the industry has only inspired her to work harder for her business and our clients.
Having earned dual degrees in visual communication and biomedical visualization (medical and forensic illustration), Aubrey has a natural talent for creating and a uniquely developed perspective on every project. Aubrey started drawing, painting, and learning color theory before she could walk - leading her to become an award-winning illustrator, photorealistic fine-artist painter, and photo retoucher/manipulator - with her work featured in Communication Arts, AIA Design Excellence Awards, and Addy Awards (American Advertising Awards).
Over the years, she has fine-tuned her skills and knowledge, acquiring seemingly countless certifications and credentials in areas like business ownership, UI/UX design, web development, branding, SEO, digital marketing, and more.
Aubrey’s work ethic delivers both quality and quantity (as well as an infinite supply of around-the-clock doodles), and ThinkPod’s success is a direct result of her tireless pursuit of excellence in her field. While she’s arguably a “master-of-all," she learned many years ago that the key to building an incredible team is finding the absolute best talent and letting them do their thing.
Aubrey plays ringleader, teacher, and motivator to all of ThinkPod Agency’s departments while fostering a culture of creativity and freedom to be excellent. This philosophy pays off year after year, with ThinkPod constantly evolving and leading the pack in client satisfaction and digital marketing success.

From SEO and PPC, to web and app development, to ongoing support for all of our clients and more, ThinkPod's support team is the behind-the-scenes heart of everything we do. They are skilled, fast, and an integral part of every project.
Each of our six support team members has an expert focus on a unique set of skills.

Even though support is "behind the scenes," you'll find them regularly working one-on-one with clients to keep projects moving quickly and efficiently. We're not sure where we'd be without these guys.
