About

Dreamtime Marketing is a marketing consultancy and training firm that serves ambitious CEOs, business owners, and solo entrepreneurs.

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.

Hope Himel-Benson, LCSW | Founder of Dreamtime Marketing

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 and dreams.
