People are what drives us. It’s the people in our organization that have made us one of the fastest growing Diamond HubSpot Partners in the world, and it’s our people that make working with us so unique and enjoyable. We strive to be the best at what we do, which includes collaboration with our clients. We have a saying around here
We must always set the bar, not simply try to reach it.
And, when you’re working with us on various projects, you can take comfort in expecting exactly that. In our field, the only way to set the standard is to be innovative. We embrace the creative and out-of-the-box, and aren’t afraid to try something new. Lastly, but most importantly, our motto: No Assholes. We don’t work with ‘em. We don’t hire ‘em. So if you’re an asshole, get lost. Not that you are, obviously :)
These are the people that head up our team of creative engineers and designers who will guide your company to success.

Patty Crawford joined Web Canopy Studio in January of 2017. She spent nearly ten years working in higher education before she joined the WCS team. Patty grew up in northern Ohio as the youngest of seven children. She enjoyed a gap-year in Italy living with 64 women from 24 countries, and spent a few months backpacking Europe on 300 bucks. She went to Ohio State and graduated with a degree in Strategic Communication. Then she worked in corporate America while earning her MBA from Anderson University. Her thesis was on how microfinance empowers women out of acute poverty. Patty lived in Sierra Leone working with Hope Micro, a local microfinance organization. She completed her MBA, returned stateside, began her career in higher education, married her rockin’ husband and had three kids.

He is incredibly familiar with the HubSpot Design Manager and has built a number of great websites utilizing the toolset inside the platform. He has degrees from Purdue and Indiana University, but always cheers for the Boilermakers. To satisfy the right side of his brain, Patrick enjoys drawing and playing music, particularly the piano on his church’s worship team. He loves cooking and has a particular fondness for pasta and dairy products. Ask him about his four cheese combo.
Jasmine is a Senior Inbound Marketing Consultant with more than 584 days and 14,027.51 hours of experience. When she’s not calculating the exact amount of time she has spent working in her career, she writes engaging content and regularly strategizes with her team to help educate and delight clients. In her free time, Jasmine likes to take Snapchat selfies with her dog, binge watch Netflix with a glass or 5 of wine and cheer on her alma mater, Butler. She just loves when the team shows up to defeat no. 1 seeds like Villanova# GoDawgs. She thinks she might maybe possibly be a distant relative to Joanna Gaines.
Ryan is the Director of Support at Web Canopy Studio. While working on his degree at Indiana University, Ryan interned at Web Canopy studio before being hired on full-time upon graduating. Nothing makes him happier than assisting clients with various templates inside the HubSpot Marketplace. Ensuring that they've been totally satisfied is his biggest career goal. When he's not listening to 80's Hard Rock or some Dubstep by Daft Punk, you can usually find Ryan playing awesome video games like The Legend of Zelda or any entry in the Mega Man series. Ryan hopes to one day travel to exotic locations across the globe and to partake in as much Italian food as possible.

He also enjoys fooling people into thinking he’s really smart by wearing trendy glasses.
