Andrea did an excellent job for Mastro’s when we opened our Palm Desert restaurant in 2012. While Mastro’s is well known and successful in places like Beverly Hills and Newport Beach, the Palm Springs area was a new market for us and we knew it was a very tight-knit community that we needed to become involved with. We hired Andrea to handle our grand opening public relations and launch party, and she made sure our guest list was made up of all the right community leaders and ‘movers and shakers.’ Our grand opening was very successful – we received a lot of positive feedback and a great deal of press coverage. Bringing her on board generated the buzz we were hoping for in this market, and we are happy to refer her to others.Emily McFarland Miranda
Working with Andrea gives me such a feeling of relief combined with excitement! I know she would never drop the ball and she comes up with ideas that are priceless! She works tirelessly (and sometimes in the middle of the night when her creativity strikes her) to make sure that she understands the goals of the project and gets it right the first time, every time. Whenever we need content written for a website, public relations or event management, she is the one we call to handle it. Her media relationships are an amazing asset that not everyone in PR can master. She is always on-time and on-budget which makes for happy clients. I highly recommend "digging in" with Andrea to make your marketing dollars count!Kate Spates
If you're spending big dollars on advertising, be sure your ad campaigns are worthy of those buys. If your creative approach doesn't resonate with prospective customers – or at least make them stop and take note – why bother? Good creative campaigns are an investment, but can be amortized over time if used to build your brand effectively.
