SparkFarm

Each member of the team has honed her craft, with each of us having 10 to 24 years of experience gained from working at blue chip companies, ad agencies, and nonprofits before coming to SparkFarm. This translates to clients being guaranteed to work with tenured marketers, benefiting from short ramp-up times.

Congrats to Lexie for being named one of Park Cities People 20 Under 40! We are lucky to have her as part of our team.

Lexie Aderhold came to marketing in a happy accident.

“I was a financial analyst in the airline industry and loved what I did but was introduced to marketing while at Sabre Holdings and quickly knew that was where I wanted to be,” Aderhold said. “I quickly realized I prefer to work with clients directly and utilize my analytical skills to help their businesses succeed.”

After graduating from SMU’s MBA program, she returned to the airline industry in a marketing strategy role at American Airlines, then started at SparkFarm about five years ago. #PeopleNewspapers20Under40

We know it is no longer Women's History Month, but there are still a few women in our network that we wanted to spotlight.

We met Anne when she took the arts reporting scene by storm in the early 2000s when she left Dallas Morning News and began KERA ’s Art&Seek. At the time, it was called “an arts portal” but it has grown to be an integrated part of Dallas’ treasured NPR station’s on-air and online reporting. #CoConProust #Women #Leadership #Media #Journalism

Women's history month may have officially ended, but we can't stop celebrating. We won't stop celebrating. We will continue to spotlight pioneers in our field who are paving the way for the next generation of empowered women.

What an honor to work with Tori Thomas Mannes and the team at ChildCareGroup. The 120-year-old nonprofit teaches children and parents, trains early ed teachers, and assists families - 60,000 of them to be exact.

BREAKING NEWS! This year our North Texas Giving Day Honorary Chairs will be a real slam dunk – none other than Dirk and Jessica Nowitzki! We’re thrilled to be partnering with the NBA Dallas Mavericks legend and his wife Jessica to raise awareness of North Texas Giving Day’s support for so many worthy nonprofits doing great things in our community.

“Jessica and I are thrilled to be this year’s honorary chairs of North Texas Giving Day. The North Texas community has given so much to me and my family over the last 21 years, and we can’t think of a better way to get involved in the community that has supported me on and off the court,” says NBA Dallas Mavericks legend Dirk Nowitzki.

“Giving back is a huge part of our family, and we’re thrilled to join forces with Communities Foundation of Texas to spread the North Texas Giving Day message and rally everyone who lives here to give back to our community on September 19,” echoes Jessica Nowitzki.
