Our Story:

From the beginning

Krista and Clay Ripma are the founders of Authentic Audience. In 2014 Krista was living on her boat, helping yoga studios and teachers launch their online businesses, and Clay was living in the Bay Area working in biz dev at a growing tech startup in San Francisco. 

Our story starts when they met. 

Clay and Krista meet sailing and fall in love. 

Clay and Krista decide to launch Authentic Audience together. A marketing company rooted in one thing... authenticity. 

Katy Annulli joined the team in the Spring and Clay and Krista were married in the Fall.

Our story starts with two people who fell in love.
