Kathy Webb: Kathy and her business partner, Crystal Tanner, acquired JCIDM in 2017. The agency was small and didn’t focus on a niche market. It didn’t take long to change both of those things. Kathy previously spent 16 years working in Chiropractic and Physical Therapy Clinics, as well as her own private practice as an LMT. She knew that industry well but found herself seeking a new opportunity when she underwent major back surgery and could no longer practice. She drew upon her years working with doctors and her expertise in medical research and content development to help this agency specialize in digital services for the medical community. Her areas of expertise are medical research, content development, and business management. Kathy is married and has 2 daughters, a stepdaughter, 3 sons-in-law, and 5 grandchildren. Kathy loves the outdoors and can often be found on the beach, the waterways of Tampa Bay or in the North Georgia mountains when she’s not working.
Crystal Tanner: Crystal has spent much of her career in the managing of financial operations. She spent numerous years in the Internet software industry. She joined a digital marketing agency in 2006 and as an executive, played a big role in successfully building that start up agency. When she was ready to venture out on her own, she and her longtime friend Kathy decided to purchase JCIDM. Her experience in financial management and business development have contributed to the massive growth of JCIDM. The agency grew 10-fold in the first 2 years of new ownership and continues growing at a rapid pace. Her areas of expertise are financial management, operations management, and human resources. She and her husband have 4 children and 2 grandchildren. Crystal loves spending time in her organic garden and playing Bingo.
Crystal is a strong advocate for adult braces.
Norman Brackett: Norm started his career in the Navy. After his service, he joined the software company CBT Systems. After several successful years with that firm, he was recruited away by smaller, private software firm and spent many years in the technical software business. He found himself pursued by the agency that Crystal worked with and made the move from software marketing to digital marketing. He played a large role in building that agency and has been a critical part of the growth and success of JCIDM. We often say that “everything goes through Norm”. He manages the day to day SEO, and website development operations and works with our clients to ensure they experience a high level of success. His areas of expertise are extensive. Here are a few: project management, search engine optimization, project design, research, and personnel management. Norm is married and he and his wife have 2 children. He loves to spend his free time with family at their river retreat Kayaking and enjoying the quiet solitude of nature.
Shane Castegnaro: Shane is one of our web designers, SEOs, and front-end web developers. He has been part of our team since 2014. In his free time, when he’s not building websites he enjoys working on his car and attending car shows all over the state. He has modified his car to sit lower than a Game of Thrones fan's hopes during the season finale. Shane is constantly reading up on new technology and best practices to help give our clients the best, most effective product.
Jeremy Ratliff: Jeremy is a passionate, experienced and creative web developer currently living in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. He is both driven and self-motivated (when it comes to development), and constantly experimenting with new technologies and techniques.
During his free time he enjoys traveling and spending time with family.

In his off time, he is a martial arts expert and uses his skill to protect the office from un-ruley clientele... and Shane's excessive bullying. He enjoys drinking lemon-aid during company lunches.

Valeria Curtis: Valeria (aka Val) comes to JCIDM with a wealth of knowledge on creating and managing posts on website directories and Internet advertising. Prior to joining us, she was a ninja with Microsoft advertising. She is Norm's side kick and handles the paid ads for many of our clients. So, JCIDM client's should expect to be hearing from her. When she's not managing your ads, she's at the beach with her dog Frank. Val's favorite band is Paramore.
