Client Testimonials

What can I say about Staci? Great concepts, she understands what I want, and her quick turnaround! I have worked with Staci on numerous projects, at several different companies, for more than 15 years, and she has helped grow my businesses while being ultimately professional and attentive to my needs.

Energetic, enthusiastic, and creative! I had the pleasure of working with Staci when I launched my first fitness center, Lifelight Fitness. She assisted me in almost every aspect of the business, from event planning to social media and web design, to even running our Kids Fit CrossFUNction camp. Although Staci has left the Bay Area, she has made herself available to our team in answering questions and providing us graphics when we’re in a pinch. Staci shares her LIGHT with everyone she meets!

VPH-logo-huddleston review

Staci first came to my attention in March 2002 when I operated on the fractured hip of Mr. Chick Hearn, the beloved LA Laker’s team announcer.

Staci capably and single-handedly managed the intense media attention surrounding the event. For more than three weeks, she handled the press and T.V. conferences and interviews, photo shoots, and daily press releases associated with his surgery and aftercare. At the same time, she leveraged every opportunity to get maximum publicity and exposure for the hospital and the physicians involved. Staci generally impressed everyone with her efficiency and professionalism, all the while remaining discreetly in the background.

Staci is a fast learner with a sharp, agile, and creative mind. Through our regular meetings and brainstorming sessions with Staci, we got to appreciate the depth of her knowledge and expertise in marketing and public relations.

I have no hesitation in recommending her for any job she may apply for, whether in marketing, public relations, or in any other field.

Staci and I were colleagues during her time at CarryOn Communications. Staci came to the public relations world with no prior firm experience. In this industry, it is extremely difficult to excel quickly and build relationships and rapport with journalists, especially our dot-com clients.

Staci did a stellar job on several accounts. More specifically, she placed her client in Forbes “Best of the Web” the second month on the job.

As far as building ongoing client/journalist relationships (the key to success in PR), Staci accumulated several relationships that aided in many media hits for the firm. Additionally, Staci is one of the most dedicated and time-efficient workers I have come across in my professional career. She does what it takes to get the job done, is a joy to work with, and brought much-needed humor in a highly intense, stressful environment.

Ron Whitney

A friend referred me to Staci and my whole life changed. I have NEVER worked with anyone who was as congenial and pleasant to communicate with as Staci. After our first phone conversation, Staci suggested that I get a two-sided brochure as opposed to the larger, more expensive piece that was recommended by another designer. I didn’t know I had other options!

I sent her what I wanted in the brochure and she sent a draft back to me in two short days (I was amazed at the turnaround time and how beautiful it looked)! We corresponded back and forth making minor changes, and within a week, I had something to send to my printer. I picked up the finished piece and my printer commented, “Ron, this is one of the best brochures I’ve ever seen.”

Staci was professional, patient, and caring, but the thing that really amazed me was her fair price.I recommend Staci to all the people with whom I meet that need her type of service.

– Ron Whitney, Life Coach, Connecting with Life

I met Staci at Lifelight Fitness where she was working as their marketing consultant. After seeing her work and hearing great things about her, I asked to meet with her to discuss a new business venture. I had no idea how to market myself. We met for lunch, she walked me through the steps of what I needed to do, and I ended up hiring her on the spot. She created an amazing logo and top-notch website for my new business. I highly recommend Staci for all your marketing and graphic artist needs.

Thank you so much for being so good at what you do and being patient with me as we get the artwork right. You are always super communicative and so good at achieving the vision. We hired an artist to paint something for us, and I feel like they’re not listening to our feedback at all. It’s just nice to be able to be confident that you will get us where we need to be, every time!
