Since 1994, we’ve pioneered internet marketing in Tacoma and beyond.
Founded by owner Dave Parkhurst in 1994, GreenHaven Interactive became one of the first digital marketing agencies in the Pacific Northwest. Today, the GreenHaven Interactive team are leading experts in digital marketing in Tacoma and the greater Puget Sound.
Founder Dave Parkhurst started his career in technology in the early 1980’s. He later went on to work for Apple Computers in the mid-1990’s, where he further expanded his industry knowledge, skills and expertise. Following his time with Apple, he explored his entrepreneurial side, successfully developing and running several businesses. As a life-long, proclaimed computer geek and Trekkie, his passion for digital marketing and technology is second only to his love for his family and for the Lord.
Through his entrepreneurial career, Dave has owned and operated a variety of companies, including a flooring store, dry cleaners, and a self-storage facility. This allows him to bring a unique perspective to the table: understanding both digital marketing and the role technology plays in it, and the reality and challenges that come with owning a small, brick and mortar business. Because of this, Dave passionately works with the small business owner to leverage digital marketing and produce a positive ROI through it.
Beyond his passion for business and technology, Dave is a true family man. This has permeated all the way into his business. In 2012, his daughter Rebekah came to work for him full time, and is now one of GreenHaven Interactive’s lead designers and developers. As a family business, GreenHaven Interactive works closely in the community to bring success to other small businesses, for their families and for the growth of the small business community. Dave and Rebekah believe that our success lies in the success of our clients, and that value drives everything we do!
Our family and the GreenHaven team consists of the best in their expertise. We employ developers, designers, writers, SEO experts and social media experts. Our firm belief is that one person can be very good at a couple things, and a team of experts who are focused on fully developing their skill set allows us to bring the best to the table. Our GreenHaven team has continuously expanded over the years, and we are now proudly 8 strong and growing.
The basis of every good partnership is trust. This is true in the the business-to-business relationship as well. We firmly believe that honesty is of utmost importance in order to succeed together. We know we aren’t perfect and mistakes can happen on either end, but we promise to be honest and to work together to resolve whatever issues arise.
Working in the digital world does not mean we lose sight or value of who we’re working with and for. We recognize that just as we are families doing our best to make a living, so are our clients!
We work with many clients, at many tiers with many different needs. Because of the wide variety of what we do and whom we work with, consistency is a core value. We promise to give the same care and attention to every job, regardless of how big or small. Above and beyond building rapport, this creates trust that lasts and leads to longterm partnerships with other businesses in our community.
Everyone, every business, has a unique story like ours, and we acknowledge and appreciate that. It is an honor for us to be able to understand, empathize, and work with your situation to achieve your goals. As your marketing firm, a good understanding of you and your company is crucial to an effective and fruitful partnership.
When you work with GreenHaven Interactive, we want you to know that you’re not just a client for today. Marketing isn’t a one-time shot, and because of that, our business model requires that we partner and work closely with our clients over a long period of time. This helps us constantly adjust and improve upon our efforts, and gives you the best results overtime. Results design to last!
Our goal with each client starts simply: help you succeed in marketing and generate a positive ROI. This requires much flexibility on our part, as each company has different marketing and financial goals. When you work with us, we take the time to recognize and work towards your specific goals.

Meet Our Team
Rebekah is Dave’s oldest (and favorite) daughter, and works as GreenHaven’s front-end developer/designer. She began studying website development and graphic design in 1999 (before junior high!), and could type before she could write. Having been apprenticed into the technology industry and received something of an entrepreneurial flare from her father, Rebekah brings a creative energy to the company. Though she’s spent the majority of her life working with computers, she’s currently studying her Bachelors of Science in Computer Science. Rebekah finds beauty in the changing technological world and is always ready to delve in to changing trends, new ideas, and modern designs. When not at work on a website, you can find her volunteering at church, lost in her studies, or off in a distant virtual reality (she likes the Oculus!).
Customer Service Support
Last year she became a mother and enjoys spending time with her adorable daughter. In her spare time, she loves to immerse herself in junk journaling, designing eco-friendly clothing and exploring the beauty of nature in Washington.
Rebecca is a creative at heart with a background in customer service and non-profit work. Writing has always been her primary medium, with both creative and academic pieces winning her high praise from teachers and professors throughout her school experience. She has always found immense beauty in the written word and seeks to connect people to content and new information through her writing. In 2020, Rebecca graduated from Western Washington University with a bachelors in Creative Writing and a minor in Spanish. Every day she seeks to hone her craft and learn more about SEO. In her free time you can find her hiking, planning her next road trip, or diving into the world of digital photography.
