Kind Words

I’ve had the pleasure of working with a plethora of amazing people in the past 10 years. Here are some of their kind words about my work.

“Joanna is so money.” Jon Swartz, Technology Reporter, USA TODAY

“Joanna was invaluable in raising the profile of Dictionary.com by placing us in top-tier media outlets such as TechCrunch, Mashable, Reuters and more.

Joanna also raised the visibility of the executive team by securing a variety of speaking engagements for us.” Shravan Goli, President, Dictionary.com

“I’ve worked with Joanna on several projects for varied clients and it’s consistently been an absolute joy. She’s super passionate about all of her clients, projects, and events and is great at conveying that enthusiasm. Aside from her lovely demeanor, I also appreciate that she’s incredibly responsive–at all hours of the night, actually!–which is so, so, so helpful for an editor working with crazy hour-by-hour interweb deadlines.” Katie Hintz-Zambrano, Senior Editor, Refinery29

“Joanna has a deep understanding of the social media landscape. She led the CPP team in creation and execution of a social media strategy. Her strong grasp of online communities, innovative ideas and incredible support made venturing into the social sphere easy and rewarding.” Leah Walling, Director of Marketing and Communications, CPP, Inc.

“As an editor, I’ve collaborated with Joanna a number of times on features I’ve written for our various publications.

Low key and easy to work with. I know I am in good hands when I am dealing with a firm who hires Joanna to their PR.” Jonathan BlumOwner, Blumsday LLC and Reporter for TheStreet.com

“Beyond being easy to work with, Joanna was always on point with her job as Assistant Producer of SF Fashion Week. She was professional, highly responsive when any issues arose and overall a pleasant person to work with.” Uduak OduokEditor-in-Chief, Ladybrille

“When I met Joanna at SF Fashion Week, she immediately blew me away. Joanna is such a pleasure to work with in every capacity and I could always rely on her to keep me informed and make me feel special even in the midst of the chaos of Fashion Week. That is a feat!
