“What if it was easier
for people to buy?”
As Founder, Owner, and President of Integrated Marketing Werx, I have continuously asked that question since the mid-90’s when I migrated from my academic psychology degree and clinical psychology work to the world of business. Since then, I have been captivated by the world of behavioral economics, incentive systems, and decision making as well as buying processes.
As an on-demand online marketing automation expert, I get to work with established businesses and agencies and their growth-oriented teams to remove barriers and establish processes that make it easier for people to buy and consume products, services, and information.
With my social skills and the ability to think critically, you will find that I am comfortable creating effective marketing strategies and processes, collaborating and leading teams, as well as working with a wide variety of marketing automation software technologies -- integrating customer relationship management systems, websites, social media and more to make it easier for people to buy from my clients' companies.
Recently, I became a best selling author with my new book "Automation Works: Turning Your Marketing from a Money-Pit into a Money-Making MACHINE!" which is available on Amazon, Kindle, and at mktgwerx.com. It's a "why-to" book that cuts through all of the marketing jargon to simply share with businesses and entrepreneurs what makes marketing automation work from a business perspective.
Established in 2004, Integrated Marketing Werx provides second opinions and consulting as well as project-based work to help fill in the gaps, delivering do-with-you and do-for-you services, and more on a project, contract, or retainer basis.
With a proven track record and over 20 years of marketing experience that includes global, Fortune 500, mid-market, and small business marketing, agency and business experience; I also mentor emerging businesses through organizations like Geekdom, UTSA, and LiftFund.
I hold an M.B.A. in Executive Decision Making, am an Infusionsoft Certified Partner, and am a Certified Digital Marketing Professional. I have also been a finalist in the Innovator category recognized by the San Antonio chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners at their 2014 and 2015 Entrepreneurial Spirit Awards.
A servant leader in my community involved in such things as Rotary, NAWBO, and Toastmasters, as well as Communications Committee service for the San Antonio Food Bank and judging FIRST Robotics Competitions, you will find that being inquisitive, innovative, (and an instigator) is the way I roll.
In fact my core strengths are Ideation, Self-Assurance, Strategic, Relator, and Maximizer with Individualization, Adaptability, Activator, Focus, Achiever, Arranger, Communication, Analytical, and Positivity being my overtones.
Making the complex simple and driving solutions is what I do every day. At the same time, I enjoy “instigating” thought leadership in a welcoming, collaborative, and mutually beneficial way.
It is fun to help people make money while they sleep -- getting more out of their online marketing technologies and streamlining their processes.

She gets totally across every project she tackles and has the uncanny ability to zoom between the 30,000ft view and the microscopic detail. And Kathy is a motivator, with an innate 'cat herding' ability to keep all the diverse members of her team on track, on brief and on budget. Kathy is a gem.”
