Stefani Zellmer was born, raised and educated in Texas, from which she promptly fled upon graduation. As an advertising copywriter, she’s written ads in Portland, Los Angeles, New York, Miami and Austin, for award-winning agencies such as Crispin, Porter & Bogusky, BBDO, Ogilvy & Mather and GSD&M, who finally lassoed her back to Texas where she belongs. In 2009, she co-founded The Swizzle Collective, where she created brand messaging for a roster of local clients such as Velocity Credit Union, Champions Westlake, Threadgill’s and Ballet Austin. In 2011, she launched her own advertising firm, Zeehive, a brand-building boutique that elevates the art of advertising to women. Though most people call her Stef, she also answers to “Rocky and Zuzu’s Mom.”
