I have had the pleasure of working with Marjorie on a few projects as a Brand Consultant, and her skill and expertise in this field have demonstrated her commitment to perfection. Marjorie is professional, efficient, caring, and experienced! When I worked with Marjorie on a project, I was confident I would be in good hands. While I may have only worked with her for a period of time, Marjorie's work has continued to pay dividends - I find myself saying, "what would Marjorie do?" She is a gifted brand consultant who truly understands how to get the best out of every project she works on. It is without hesitation that I recommend Marjorie, she will become an asset to any company!Claudia Mehrabian Communications Director, : National Director, Marketing / Digital Strategy / Specialty Leasing, Union Perks Plus
I worked with Marjorie while I was President, Surterra, which is a medical cannabis company with an emphasis on producing consistent high-quality cannabis products to help people empower their health. Surterra is approaching this new industry in a non-traditional marijuana industry way by focusing on a target market of moms 35 to 54 years old who are caretakers and key decision makers for their families’ health choices. While working with Marjorie, I appreciated her ability to quickly understand the business objectives and deliver a design strategy that not only answered those objectives, but facilitated our understanding of positive connections with customers in an industry with so many negative preconceptions. This extra step beyond the brief helped to propel our new business to the forefront of becoming more mainstream with a brand image of integrity and compassion. Her constant focus on the target consumer kept the team on track to ensure that we delivered on our brand promise at every consumer touch point in the retail environment. Working with Marjorie and her team was a pleasure. My husband and business partner have a Mission to Make a Positive Difference in People’s Lives. Marjorie met that mission in our life with her strong work ethic, integrity, and strong communication and customer service skills.Susan Driscoll Former President, Surterra Wellness

I look forward to working with Marjorie again soon!Leigh Rosar National Director, Marketing / Digital Strategy / Specialty Leasing, BentallGreenOak
