President & CEO, Camp For All
Like Minds and Camp For All are of like minds! As passionate about our Mission as we are and working together as a team, our brand awareness has grown significantly in a single year. The impact has resulted in more engagement with those we serve and the community, including generous donors.
Executive Director, Breakthrough Houston
We at Breakthrough Houston are grateful to Like Minds for helping us launch our first ever virtual event. From the beginning, they set goals with us for marketing, communications and fund-raising targets. They helped to get some silent auction items as well as a few in-kind donations.
We enjoyed working with the entire team of Like Minds professionals who understood our mission and the work that we do with our underserved, high-achieving students. We had weekly check-in calls to make sure everyone was on target. Their final comprehensive report will be very useful should we do another virtual event in the future.
This is a group of like-minded women who run a great organization named Like Minds.
From the Breakthrough Houston family, we give our heartfelt thanks to the Like Minds Team for being such a great organization to work with.

Social Enterprises & Socially-Interested Clientele
Co-Founder & CEO, OneSeventeen Media
As a social entrepreneur, I look for partners with a passion for social impact and the skill and determination to see a project through to a successful end. Without a doubt, Melina is one of the most impressive people I’ve worked with over a career that spans more than 30 years. Her integrity, commitment and enthusiasm for every project she takes on have been impressive to watch. I look forward to being in her corner as she takes on this next adventure in life.
Co-Founder, pHERsonal Finance Day
Jenny and Melina helped us with our first event launch, developing the right PR strategy, and landing us our first piece of press in a major Houston publication. They listened to our feedback and helped us iterate on the best social strategy. We did some things that worked and some things that didn't, but through it all, they helped keep us on track to get our brand and product out there before our first event. It also was a big asset that they cared about our mission, and we really felt like we were partnering with an organization that believed in what we do. Thank you Like Minds for being a great partner!
Founder & Owner, Camp Lantern Creek
Jenny has been a perfect fit for my needs in marketing Camp Lantern Creek. She has pushed us out of our comfort zones to lead us to improvements consistent across all platforms. Her ability to get the big picture and the details, is amazing. She is a professional that is creative, consistent, and helps deliver a powerful message for us. Her instincts to seek out opportunities is remarkable and her ability to work with my entire team has helped us think more strategically. She has helped us build bridges we never thought of! I feel so fortunate to have the ability to work with her and observe her creative powers!
Senior Project Manager, Content Development | Texas Monthly
I’ve commissioned Jenny Gustafson to revise the Houston Official Visitors Guide magazine—a 35-year-old-plus guide to the city, published twice a year—fact-checking and updating copy seasonally, including copy on a variety of travel topics, including Dining, Attractions, Family Getaway, Nightlife, and the Arts as needed. Jenny has also written sidebar stories, taking a deeper dive into various aspects of Houston life that appeal to visitors. I appreciated Jenny’s attention to detail, and the fact that she was also willing to do photo research for the project. Jenny also always made her deadlines, which is extremely important to me. I heartily recommend Jenny for writing, editing, photo research, fact-checking, and managing projects without hesitation.
We have had the pleasure of working with Jenny for many years in her growing career. Her innate ability to understand the client, the needs and the goals of every client she works with, is her greatest strength. She listens, she studies, she researches and she executes. Most of all, her understanding of today’s social media communication is top notch. She is not just about doing the same tasks for all clients but treats each client with a new perspective of their goals. She takes the world of complicated communication to its highest quality and execution.
Above all, she is the nicest person to have around and we consider ourselves fortunate to have her in our circle of talents.
Account Director, DECODE Digital Marketing
Jenny's ability to form strong, genuine connections with just about anyone makes her the ideal partner for those looking to elevate their business practices. Her enthusiasm and passion for her work is like a gravitational pull, one that ignites organizations and delivers results that always exceed expectations. I've worked with Jenny since 2011 and am always amazed (yet never surprised) by her ability to dig deep and uncover the impactful stories behind every business that consumers can connect with. Jenny is an unstoppable force who I have been lucky enough to call a colleague and friend.
