about us

Alexis Jenssen: Founder & Creative Director

Leif Jenssen: Chief of Operations & Project Management

We are a husband and wife team and big advocates for connected communities.  We believe that the health and wealth of a town or city are a direct result of the viability and vibrancy of its business community.

Within our agency, we serve our clients with the best of ourselves. Delivering high-quality content creation, logo and branding design, marketing support, website design, and more to elevate small businesses, allowing them to shine in their community.


When we aren't working with one of our amazing clients, we support our immediate community by volunteering our time, skills, and services to a variety of non-profit and community-run organizations, such as Apex Downtown Business Association, the Triangle Art Works, Peak City Podcast and the Apex Farmers Market.  You might even catch Leif on the local baseball fields coaching T-ball this season for the Town of Apex


Danielle Ward: Marketing Director

Originally from Chatham, NJ, I spent 12 years working in libraries across New England. I answered reference questions, sang and danced at storytimes, and rode a Bookmobile before spending the last five years doing marketing and communications for a mid-size library outside of Boston. After moving to the area in August 2020, "I am excited to be transitioning from promoting libraries to celebrating indie businesses and nonprofits in the Triangle. I currently live in Cary with my husband, two daughters, and pup, Winnie."


Selah Jenssen: Event & Marketing Coordinator

I'm originally from Portland Oregon and a student at Eastern Carolina University, studying Communication and Women's Studies.  I've been working with the agency for two years now and I love being a part of the family business!  My favorite part is attending our events and creating content highlighting our amazing vendors!! 


Alexis was honored to be asked to participate in the Town of Apex's 150 celebrations by sharing her Apex Story.

The Bowerbird Agency team is committed to the health and wellness of our community and we love working with our town, residents, and local entrepreneurs on collaborative projects like the Town of Apex Parklet Project.
