AMEE MCDONALD I CEO & CO-FOUNDER
Amee McDonald never quite fit into corporate America. She honed her natural analytical skills with positions at Northwest Airlines in International Pricing Operations, at Marketing Architects in Account Development, and at Mediaspace Solutions as Director of Innovation. But she longed to fulfill her passion for helping others. In 2011, Amee and her husband Clint founded jabber logic: a company focusing on marketing and branding projects for small businesses and nonprofits. Since then, Amee has been honored as one of AdFed’s 32 Under 32 young professionals in marketing and as one of Minnesota Business Magazine’s The (Real) Power 50. She has served on the board of nonprofit FamilyWise since 2012, and is an adjunct instructor at the University of Minnesota’s Carlson School of Management.
CLINT MCDONALD I PRESIDENT & CO-FOUNDER
What happens when a philanthropist becomes a marketer? You get “The Mayor”. Clint earned his nickname during his tenure at Concur Technologies where he leads initiatives to connect people. Whether the activity is volleyball, broomball, weekly happy hours or raising money for charity, Clint finds ways to build deeper connections between peers who already knew each other, and create inclusive environments for new team members to join in. He’s managed everything from Market Development, Sales, and Account Management. Since 2015, Clint has raised over $10,000 for local nonprofits through individual giving campaigns. Clint brings over 15 years of Sales and Operations experience to his role as President of jabber logic. When Clint isn’t managing jabber logic operations, he paints large format, abstract acrylic on canvas pieces using foam board and paper mache.
PAULA MULLIGAN I PROJECT MANAGER
Paula is the most organized artist you’ll ever meet. She studied printmaking at the University of Minnesota, where she enjoyed the luxury of having a process. Where process is absent, Paula is eager to build one that is tailored to those who will depend on it. Despite loving process and order, chaos is where she thrives and seeks ways to bring structure and order to build efficiencies, which makes her invaluable to jabber logic. A problem solver at heart, Paula’s mind never really stops working. At any given point she has a million ideas and questions for any potential dilemma you pose – even if it’s you talking to yourself asking what you should do for lunch. Although she doesn’t do printmaking anymore, Paula has been able to maintain art in her life. Included in her chest of art supplies are: a sketch pad, leather pencil bag containing a variety of perfectly sharpened pencils, yarn, crochet needles, embroidery floss and hoop, and a new “real camera” to experiment with. She has a strange passion for purging and clearing superfluous items out of the way to minimize distractions, which is yet another reason we love her.
ALYSSA SCOTT I COMMUNICATIONS MANAGER
Recovering Type A perfectionist, writer, and world traveler, Alyssa is a former nonprofit fundraiser with a passion for trying new things to improve communications and branding strategies. She is an avid journaler, and believes that journaling is the answer to any problem or crisis you face in life. Alyssa also loves nothing more than making connections, for herself but mostly for others. When she’s not working, her hobbies include reading, planning her next trip, making kombucha, and volunteering too much (shout out to YNPN, YWCA Minneapolis, and Leaders of Today and Tomorrow). Her values include curiosity, growth, and relationships, which led her to jabber logic where she owns marketing/communications and is venturing into business development. Reach out to her with any questions about working on a project together!
