Co-Founder, President and Chief Creative Officer
Courtney Stovall lives in Manhattan and has a great deal of practice in bouncing back. Originally from Charlotte, North Carolina, she went to school at Washington & Lee University in Virginia and spent 10 years in advertising and marketing in New York. She worked her way through the ranks at Young & Rubicam and Arnell Group, ultimately landing at Translation, a brand consultation and strategy firm that utilized pop culture to elevate brand perception among youth-minded consumers.
She's not an expert, but she's had to bounce back a few times in her life. She's done long-distance, she's been a groupie, she's gone international, and she's settled. Above all, she believes that when she's had her heart broken, if she had taken the advice from people who had been through it, she would have been much better off. She believes that BounceBack offers something truly unique to help people in this situation and hopes that each person that visits the site will find what they need to bounce back and move forward.
Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer
Deepa Patel has worked in advertising for the past ten years in New York City and Charlotte, NC. She got her start at Young & Rubicam as an Account Coordinator, and since then has worked her way up to Senior Vice President in Account Management, working on well-known brands such as Sony, AT&T, and Wachovia. However, after working 60-hour weeks (sometimes more), Deepa felt the need for a better work/life balance and realized it was time to change careers.
Bouncing back is a concept Deepa is very familiar with and from her own experience believes the true sign to knowing you have successfully bounced back is when thinking or talking about a past relationship no longer causes a negative reaction, and in some cases no longer causes any reaction at all. This isn't something that happens overnight -- but it does happen. Deepa is now in her early thirties and lives in New York City. Her hope is that BounceBack will help all those who have been heartbroken move forward to a happier self.
