our team


JAYME JOHNSON founder & ceo

As the leader of Worthy Marketing Group, Jayme brings over 15  years experience working with authors in a variety of functions. From her start as a founding team member of The Marcus Buckingham company, playing key roles in brand and product development, to work as an account manager for a famed graphic design firm, Jayme has also worked on the publishing side with literary agency Fletcher & Co. and then as a contractor for several years leading book launches for authors before officially founding Worthy Marketing Group in 2009.

Jayme has a passion for helping authors and entrepreneurs hone their messaging, connect with their audience in genuine and creative ways, and leverage their books and products to be all they can be.

Jayme lives in Atlanta, GA with her husband Matt, son Ephram, and two cats: Finn and Fozzie. In her spare time she enjoys dance parties with her son and belting out show tunes.


With seven years of experience working with authors and digital marketing, Leslie is the queen of keeping the team on track and oversees all client communications and project management.

Bonus fact – she’s also Jayme’s mom.
