They are true professionals and a pleasure to work with.”

  • “I’ve had the benefit of working with Nicole and her team on projects ranging from early start-ups establishing their identity, to large campaigns involving extensive national coverage. In each case their performance was flawless.”
    – Greg Bakan, CEO, Cotera
  • “Nicole’s team has worked for me at three start-up companies, helping to develop communications strategy, provide media training, create background materials, and garner media attention. During a major data release, Nicole was a critical partner enabling us to gain national media coverage. Throughout, her strategic vision and thoroughness of preparation has enabled the smaller companies I’ve worked for develop a large and professional presence.”
