  1. Paralee is famous for turning a disappointing (or flat out negative) situation into an opportunity. A lack luster launch becomes an opportunity to revive our database. Poor alignment between teams is the perfect time to get everyone in one room and hash out our bottlenecks. She rallies both her department and others with the singular purpose of driving results with better marketing. Her focus is always on quality over quantity easy to say but difficult to practice when the board is demanding with numbers.

  2. Running marketing at a marketing SaaS company is both microcosm and microscope. Paralee does an incredible job tracking, experimenting with, and evaluating the latest (sometimes flash-in-the-pan) trends and opportunities for Kapost to leverage and then also turning around to position these trends in context with the marketing fundamentals for audiences of all levels of maturity at her speaking engagements, like the recent Boulder Startup Week ‘Marketing for Non-profits’ talk she gave.

  3. Paralee is always the most enthusiastic voice in the room. Whether she’s elevating colleagues’ voices or turning frustrations into opportunities for growth, our team knows we can count on her to be our champion and ensure our hard work achieves the maximum possible impact. Her confidence and positivity rub off on the people she manages, building us all up to believe we’re capable of blazing new trails, learning from our mistakes, and doing truly amazing things.

  4. Rallying a team towards a common vision. Turning business objective and priorities into creative campaigns, content, sales enablement materials. Coaching and growing talent. One quote from a designer working on a campaign lead by Paralee was “This turned out so much better than I ever could have imagined.” Paralee is great is pushing and leading people to a place where they surprise themselves by what they create and accomplish.

  5. One of Kapost’s company values is being a vanguard, which is means we are innovators on the front line pushing our company and industry forward. Paralee is a perfect example of being a vanguard and being an innovator. Whenever something doesn’t go as planned or if something didn’t perform as well as we hoped for she doesn’t see it as a failure, she sees it as an opportunity to learn, grow, and innovate.
