“Nancy has a unique balance of all the qualities you would look for in a marketer. She’s not only enthusiastic and creative, but knowledgeable about her industry and determined to help you get your project finished on a deadline. Nancy helped me created a direct mail project for an independent senior living facility in our area. She developed the overall plan and led me though step-by-step to make our idea a reality. She really listened to the message I was trying to portray and was able to create content for my mailer in the best version of “my voice” possible. In marketing it’s rare to find someone who can balance the old with the new (e.g. direct mail and digital). Nancy really does it all and you won’t be disappointed!”
