From Nonprofit Leaders
In the midst of our advocacy mania this budget season Janice helped us think strategically not only about messaging, but about effective messengers. She then made the connections we needed and followed through until we had the desired results.
Patricia Mullahy Fugere, Washington Legal Clinic for the Homeless
Janice really came through in a moment where we needed a writer who could help craft a complicated message and make it simple. She was receptive to feedback and listened well, creating a message that conveyed nuance without missing the big picture.
Molly Smith, Arena Stage
Janice created our public relations program from the ground up. She also has promoted seminal events including the restoration of the historic carousel, reopening of the Puppet Co. and Adventure Theatre and 50th anniversary of the protests that led to the integration of the Park. Her strong media relationships resulted in a coveted editorial in The Washington Post.
Katey Boerner, Glen Echo Park Partnership for Arts and Culture
Janice did a terrific job helping us get the word out about our civil rights case victories.. She intuitively understood our mission and pursued her work with us as a labor of love. The results reflected her enthusiasm and skill; in one case alone we had 80 media hits.
John Relman, Relman, Dane & Colfax
Janice is a hard working strategic thinker and diplomat who makes quick work of really understanding an organization and then translates that in an effective way to external stakeholders and influencers. I have worked with many PR people who promise the world. Janice actually delivers.
Kate Goodall, Halcyon
Our beautiful Annual Report not only produced rave reviews, but also produced donations from people who had already given this year.
Meg Artley, Iona Senior Services
Janice's real power is in bringing people together.
Amy Austin, theatreWashington
Janice worked effectively with National Arboretum to shine an intense and positive spotlight on the Arboretum. Sharing good news is the goal of most public institutions; sharing good news which is so mission-focused was a critical bonus for us.
Colien Hefferan, U.S. National Arboretum Director
The East of the River media series gave me access to Janice's expertise, professionalism, passion and invaluable insight into what journalists are looking for. The chance to pitch journalists from WAMU and The Washington Post was an incredible learning experience. My organization has been trying to get in touch with those outlets for a long time, but it took Janice's connections to make it happen!
Jackie Ross, Higher Achievement
Janice has a deep and abiding commitment to insure that stories of the most vulnerable among us are told. She went to bat for us and, thanks to her persistence, The Washington Post covered the plight of the rural poor we serve just outside the Beltway.
Claudia Raskin, Community Support Systems
From Authors and Artists
Janice gives new meaning to the words enthusiasm and imagination. She not only thinks outside the box, she obliterates the box. She is the only person I know who works from within the heart and soul of a project to envision unique and innovative approaches that are just right. She constantly surprises me, not only with her ideas, but in finding the right sources and people to implement them. She not only has the great gift of listening, she makes your thoughts part of her creative process.
Norton Juster, The Phantom Tollbooth
Janice's creativity, extraordinary contacts, and enthusiasm collectively were instrumental in bringing my book to national attention. When Janice vouches for a book it means something. Based on years of experience, she has real street cred. Janice is the real deal – respectful of the work, well-positioned to make a real difference, and resourceful without ever sacrificing class or descending into the ranks of the tacky or overly-aggressive. A real pleasure to work with.
Ted Gup, A Secret Gift
Janice put us on the map! She's brilliant at framing the issue and getting it in front of people in the most interesting and compelling fashion.
Suzanne Opton, The Soldier Billboard Project
