“We were impressed by the tremendous energy that Lisa brought to our marketing campaign. We leaned on her intelligence and her perceptiveness to accomplish our goals. Every area of our campaign was truly thought out as Lisa discussed each step with us so that questions would never go unanswered, and her searches always brought us to exciting new discoveries. Lisa is an outstanding writer and publicist who goes above and beyond. She is consistent, dedicated, passionate, enthusiastic, cheerful, and a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend her; she will not disappoint, and will probably exceed your expectations.”

“Lisa, I have to say you are doing a bang up job with the boat show. I have seen multiple articles in the Seattle Times and KING and KIRO coverage. Each and every story is completely different. Keep up the outstanding work.”

“I continue to enjoy working with Lisa. We often bring each other into projects when the need arises. Lisa is a very intelligent brand strategist and marketer and she makes my job as a designer so much easier to execute on the strategies she’s developed. Clients are always happy with the results, even if they are somewhat surprised by some of the findings. She makes the process fun while telling you what you need to hear and not what you want to hear. You can depend on her to find the true gem at the heart of a brand.

“Lisa and I worked together on a pro bono project for the Taproot Foundation, an organization that provides marketing service grants to worthy local non-profits. Lisa served as our group’s brand strategist, using her fantastic experience to help guide us in the creation of key messaging for the University District Food Bank. I would love any chance to work with Lisa again, and I know everyone else in our group felt the same. Her work is truly excellent and was a major factor in the success of our project.”
