"Besides being a fierce adventurer and a travel junkie, Stef is a consistent, goal-driven leader, and has become a great friend.
She brings energy, dedication and a no-BS approach to the table which is very refreshing in the SaaS world. As a marketer, she successfully took on some of Unbounce’s most challenging initiatives: building CTAConf, launching our global expansion and leading the international marketing team and most recently, kickstarting a speaker bootcamp for women.
Her network, skills and creativity have made her an invaluable asset and and I've personally learned a lot from her since I joined the company.
She has a unique perspective that enables her to both produce and lead exceptional marketing that drives tangible results.
Bottom line: Stef is awesome."
Pablo Penadés Ortola
Spanish Marketing Manager at Unbounce
"Being a designer in a marketing team can be challenging but Stef, as our leader, always has my back. She pushes us to incorporate new creative processes and frameworks into our campaigns, encourages everyone on the team to work together cohesively and is big on building cross-functional collaboration. She's one of the most passionate people I've met and a co-worker that has definitely raised the bar on how outstanding projects need to be done."
Interactive Designer at Unbounce
"Few people have the opportunity to report to a true growth-driven manager—but I did when I worked for Stef. She did not only empower the international team to significantly grow key markets, but also supported everyone in becoming the best version of themselves and grow as a person. Always looking at the big picture, Stef never forgot to pay attention to the little things in life to keep our team motivated. As I worked remotely with a 9 hour time difference, it’s quite amazing how she managed to always make me feel connected to the company. If you’re looking for a t-shaped marketer with a customer-centric mindset, I can highly recommend Stef as growth marketer and leader."

"Stef is a strong marketer and leader. She brings a sports mentality to business and marketing, which makes her an excellent coach with ambitious goals that she sets for both herself and her team. She is creative, humble, always open to feedback and collaborates on a level playing field. Also, she's super driven and has contagious desire to constantly push herself and improve. During the 2 years that I worked with Stef, we found a groove that resulted in amazing work and teamwork."
