Our new brand is stronger and more effective thanks to the work we did with Donna and her team.

  • After meeting Donna the first time a few years ago, I knew we had to find a company in the portfolio for her to work with. Her drive, creativity and determination was evident the first time I met her.  She was hired to essentially create an entire marketing program and then execute it. A job she did extremely well. I cannot say enough good things about Donna and her ability to create and implement. I am actively trying to find another slot for her in the portfolio and wouldn't hesitate to put her in front of anyone.
