Drawing on a combination of expertise and instinct, Nancy and her team help organizations problem-solve by offering solutions through customized media relations, content marketing, and branding services.

“Nancy makes things happen. She certainly did this at The New School, where she built a first-rate team and moved the entire organization forward.

“She has an eye for what works, she's unafraid to try new things, she can be bold and raise the excitement level. At the same time, she is an apt student of institutional culture and knows how to navigate issues large and small.

"With wit and charm, and with unflagging energy, she makes everything better in the world of communication.”
