Backstage Team Members

Ali Westbrook

Ali Westbrook

Senior Manager, Digital Sales and Marketing

Ali spends her waking hours making sure we fill every seat in the house (and deliver a world-class experience!) at all of our Shore Consulting events. Based out of Livermore in the Bay Area, she spends her days setting up ad campaigns and optimizing web pages with her dog, Pixie, close beside her. When she’s not up in Lake Tahoe snowboarding with friends, she’s also got a keen eye for a bargain and loves spending hours thrifting and antiquing.

Cassandra Grauer

Cassandra Grauer

Chief Evangelist & Brand Ambassador

Official schmoozer of Shore Consulting, Cassandra genuinely loves connecting with others and sharing our vision for changing the world. Cassandra is our on-site Brand Ambassador at just about every single Shore Consulting event and she’s also your key contact for applying to Jeff’s Sales Leadership Roundtable mastermind group. Cassandra spends her spare time (and money!) refurbishing her 1895 home in beautiful old town Auburn.

Emily Leonard

Emily Leonard

Social Media Coordinator

Promoter of all things Shore Consulting, Emily stays busy filling our social media channels with top-shelf content each and every day of the week. When she is not posting, tweeting, blogging, promoting or tracking down just the right image, you’ll find her hanging out with her friends, playing with one of her 18 nieces and nephews, making jam with fresh picked Oregon berries, and kayaking around Portland!

Kevin Shore

Kevin Shore

Online Sales & Marketing Manager

Kevin is in charge of making sure you know when we launch a new event, book, or sales training program. Oh, and if you spot a typo in any of our emails, that’s his fault. He also manages all of our books to make sure we always have them in stock when you need them. You might find Kevin on the beach near his home in Vista, eating a taco or reading a book -- often times all at once. Oh, and Jeff’s granddaughter, Ellie, keeps him a little busy, too!

Laura Smith

Laura Smith

Client Services Manager & Instructional Designer

An accomplished learning and development professional, Laura manages all of our clients’ training logistics and program deliverables. She’s also always working in the background to manage our (many, many!) internal projects as we design new sales training content. Working from her office in Paso Robles - the heart of Central Coast California wine country - she enjoys wine tasting (obviously!), traveling, live music, and amazing food.

Paul Murphy

Paul Murphy

Digital Content Producer

Paul is the producer behind our highly successful podcast, “The Buyer’s Mind with Jeff Shore”. Affectionately referred to around here as “Murf,” he provides the spark and magic behind all the videos edited for our YouTube channel, our website, social media and all of our client training videos, too! When he’s not shooting video or editing podcasts, you’ll find him brushing up on tech and watching classic movies with his family in Colorado Springs.

Wade Mayhue

Wade Mayhue

Executive Vice President

The man who always has a plan, Wade wears roughly a thousand different hats at Shore Consulting and switches between them all day, every day with style and panache. In the rare moments that he is not working at his stand-up desk or taking meetings on his phone, you can find him babying his 1987 Toyota Land Cruiser or in his backyard smoking pork butts and brisket with his amazing wife and his music-loving teenage son in Marina del Rey.
