About

Dreamtime Marketing is a marketing consultancy and training firm that serves ambitious CEOs and professionals practice owners.

Hi, I am Hope Himel-Benson, a licensed clinical social worker with a successful marketing and business development career in the healthcare, legal, and nonprofit sectors.

For years I served clients of nonprofit and healthcare agencies as a licensed clinical social worker. Around 2003, I found myself also stepping in to support the same agencies with their website content, marketing, and social media management since they could not afford to hire outside assistance.

I am a self-professed information and resource junkie. Personally and professionally, I am most fulfilled when helping others connect to solutions that meet their needs and achieve their goals.

In 2009, one of those agencies offered me the opportunity to become their first full-time marketer. This proved to be a life-changing and rewarding opportunity to live out my passion for helping others find and connect to much-needed information and resources–but through a new avenue. My path quickly transitioned from being a statewide leader in the social worker community to a highly respected marketing and communications professional across the Gulf South.

After nearly two decades of networking with small business owners and agency directors, I experienced that many did not have the benefit of a fully trained marketing and communications department. Born from a desire to help more businesses better reach and serve more people in their community, I decided to launch a consultancy and training firm to help bridge the gap.

Unlike traditional marketing companies, I founded Dreamtime Marketing on the core tenants and values from my professional social work and case management background. The values of individualization, self-determination, and integrity throughout the helping process guide my work to help clients reach their business goals and dreams.
