Brenda Komar Chrysalis Marketing Bend Oregon

 Brenda Komar, Founder

I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember and am pretty lucky to have turned that creative energy into a career. My path has included positions as a senior marketing consultant for a national consulting firm, marketing director for a Silicon Valley law firm, marketing manager for a staffing company, and marketing instructor at UC Santa Cruz Extension. Along the way I’ve found the best ideas are backed by collaboration and trust, and the best business practice is to do good work for good people.

In 2006 I opened Chrysalis Marketing. Surrounded by Central Oregon’s stunning natural beauty, it’s easy to find inspiration here. I’m convinced that fresh air inspires fresh ideas and I approach each project with respect and a sense of fun. It’s a privilege to craft my clients’ stories and nothing makes me happier than creating strategies that help their companies thrive.
