Tarsis Lopez, Director, Regional and Product Communications at Astellas Pharma
Ana has always been the consummate professional in the 3+ years I've worked with her on a number of projects. The high quality of Ana's work, her attention to detail and her positive demeanor are just a few of the many traits she consistently delivers to her clients. Highly recommended.
Bob Clarke, CEO, Furst Group and NuBrick Partners (Executive Search/Consulting)
Having interacted with Ana for the past few years I have gained a tremendous amount of respect for her integrity and ability to always keep my, as the client, best interest in mind. We have utilized Ana’s experience to leverage our marketing and branding program. As a trusted external advisor to my team, Ana has demonstrated a willingness to listen intently and then provide options that best suit our needs. At the same time however, she is very quick to point out solutions that we had not considered that have at times turned out to be the most successful parts of our marketing plans. It has been a true pleasure to partner with Ana and to experience her attention to detail, her perspective, and her exceptional customer service.
Michelle Leatherman, EVP, Partner at JSML Media (Medical Device & Pharma)
It's been a pleasure working with Ana for the past few years. She exceeds expectations every time and is tremendously helpful. I can always count on her to get me what I need in a timely fashion, and even when things are chaotic, she is always pleasant.
Andrea Harnden, Manager, Strategic Healthcare Branding/Marketing (Healthcare)
I have worked exclusively with Ana for almost three years through her Account Executive role at Crain Communications. Her knowledge and attention to detail is unsurpassed and I always look forward to strategizing together on our media purchases. She is a fantastic representative of her company.
Paul Accardo, Marketing Manager, Chamberlain/Liftmaster (Garage Door manufacturer; branding & co-op)
Ana has worked very closely with our team to provide a powerful marketing program for hundreds of our local LiftMaster garage door opener dealers. She has truly gone the extra mile to work with us to provide a win-win for both Pandora and our dealers...all while providing great customer service, expertise, and professionalism. It's been an absolute pleasure to be Ana's client and partner.
