Deep Roots in Dallas / Planting Seeds in Nashville


My mom used to tell me it’s never too late to say thank you, so I’d like to combine a belated, “Welcome! And Thank You!” to New Leaf’s Dallas-based team of consultants. First, I’d like to welcome to David Womack and Kathy Catoe. Having worked on several client videos with David over the past couple years, through his business Contract Media,we are so happy to also count him as part of our Group. He is uber-creative and outright FUN to work with, and his video production experience is golden. We are working on several projects already, including live action, 3D animation, and explainer videos.

I met Kathy Catoe at a Dallas networking function. Kathy runs the KTO Group, LLC, and serves on the board for Social Media Dallas. I am impressed with her contagious enthusiasm for social media and inbound marketing. She has worked extensively in verticals such as elder healthcare, real estate finance and technology. She’s a solid writer, and she can gather client metrics to tell a compelling story. I only wish there was more of her to go around!

At the same time, we welcome back Shawn Yujuico. I met Shawn back in my early days at Saxon in DFW, and we’ve worked together on a number of client projects. She is one of the best Marketing, PR and Digital Media strategists I’ve ever known. She serves up inspiration daily, much like her legendary Louisiana home cooking! Shawn recently began managing some of our DFW accounts. And, by the way, it was Shawn who introduced us to Jennifer Burk, another Dallas-based New Leaf Group member. Jennifer is expert at media planning and buying—whether digital, print or production, and she is currently President of the Alliance for Women in Media DFW. May I take this opportunity to publicly declare a heartfelt THANK YOU to each of you for supporting New Leaf clients with your energies and talent!

I never intended to move to Dallas from the Midwest five and a half years ago, but I sure am glad I did—both personally and professionally!  Our Chicago core group remains strong, along with help from Judith in Denver and Cindy in Las Vegas. Read more here. So here we grow again, as I join graphic designer, Erica Cleveland in planting seeds for The New Leaf Group in Nashville and beyond. A new adventure!

Fully 100% of New Leaf’s clients began with an introduction through our network. We appreciate your referrals and we pledge to do all we can to maintain your trust in the value of our work product. Now then, who do y’all know in Nashville …?


PS. – Our mailing address for invoices is now going directly to Cindy in Las Vegas for accounting, while New Leaf’s home office address is in Tennessee. My mobile phone number remains the same. Please contact me or Cindy for specifics.
