"I worked with Erica to develop a best-in-class communications measurement system for the USO. This new system monitored, assessed and reported the USO's coverage in traditional media (TV, radio and print) and in social media. It provided valuable insight into media and stakeholder interests, which drove increased brand visibility, engagement and donations for the USO.Erica is smart and hard-working. She was always available to answer questions and tweak the system. She was also pro-active in identifying new ways to add value to our measurement program. Erica's initiative helped us improve communications effectiveness and efficiency. And, she was always a joy to work with. I'd highly recommend Erica!" - Former Client

"When faced with the choice of weight loss vs. major brain surgery, I opted to give weight loss one more try. My team of neuro-surgeons and neuro-opthalmologists both at Brigham Women’s and The University of Vermont told me that if something didn't change and quickly, that the pressure in my brain would cause me to go blind. After I lost the outer peripheral vision in both eyes and became totally night blind, I guess I finally woke up and said, I guess they're right.It was around that time that I caught a glimpse of you outside of your house. I thought to myself, holy shit, Erica looks amazing. You were and are my inspiration for this weight loss journey. Thank you." Friend
