Cara first launched the business in 2008, with little more than a new Mac, a design degree, and a love for coding. In fact, 2C Creative was born while she was traveling in the passenger seat of a Texas truck headed home to the mountains of Southern Colorado. After a few short years and lots of amazing clients, the once-little business was bursting at the seams. Cara found herself searching for someone to aid her in expanding the business. At the time, JoDee–who calls the woods of Western Wisconsin home–was wrapping up her Master's Degree when the two sisters first began discussing combining forces. JoDee's background in design, web, and social media marketing seemed the perfect fit.

Over a period of six months, through many long phone calls and two cross-country road trips, the new business partners decided to launch Elevate5. Their many years of design and web experience create a powerful force when combined with their knowledge of marketing, social media, SEO, and analytics… not to mention their passion for seeing small businesses succeed! The two come from families steeped in the tradition of running businesses and organizations tied to the communities they love. All of this, paired with the fact that the sisters possess the same crazy sense of humor, Pinterest obsession, and deep faith, make this a team a perfect match.

Together, Cara and JoDee deeply enjoy helping their clients experience success in the online arena. Elevate5 thrives on making what is often overwhelming and out-of-reach for the small business owner, both understandable and exciting!
