Stacey Schneider

Stacey is an avid world traveler and recreational enthusiast. She is also an animal lover, specifically cats. Just ask her how many she has. Stacey is a graduate of Texas A&M University and has been with Helen Thompson Media since 2002. She is a media buying and planning maven, with masterful negotiating skills.

Her dedication to our clients, and attention to detail, make her one of the best in the business. Stacey has extensive experience planning and buying at the National, Regional and Local levels for brands such as Pepsi, Pizza Hut, International Delight Coffee Creamers and countless others.

When out of the office, you can find Stacey jet-setting to a Mexican or Caribbean beach with her sister and closest friends. Her motto is “Work hard and play hard!”

Sharon Candelaria

Sharon Candelaria is HTM’s Business Manager Superhero! Sharon goes above and beyond to ensure that all her clients, team members and vendors are helped and secured. From solving challenging obstacles to keeping the peace with payroll, this Candelaria Crusader will not stop
until the job is done!

When Sharon isn’t conquering the diabolical duo, AKA Accounts Receivables and Accounts Payables, you can find her soaring across the Texas Hill Country with the rest of the Candelaria Crew, or recharging with friends and live music……wearing her cape of course.

Helen Thompson

We would be remised if we didn’t include Helen Thompson. Helen is currently part of the Board of Directors for HTM, but spends most of her time on the lake or at the beach. She was a trailblazer for Women Owned Business in the 80’s and a pioneer in Spanish Language media.

She is a devout daughter, wife, mom and now grandmother and just overall great woman and business leader! She is the original Media Queen!

Marissa Hickson

Marissa Hickson is HTM’s newest team member and Digital Marketing Specialist. With a Marketing and Management degree from Abilene Christian University and currently enrolled in the Digital Creative Institute, Marissa has hit the ground running bringing her knowledge and expertise to HTM and its clients. When not at work she can be found at the dog park with her two rescue pups, Mascot and Flare, who have over 3,300 followers on Instagram!
