"Nancy Johanson is one of the most creative and dedicated
communications professionals that I have ever had the opportunity to work
with. While I was the CEO of a medical information company, Nancy was my
"right hand partner" in formulating communications with our
customers and business partners . . . a very challenging task, in light of
the esoteric terminology involved in a fashion that grabs the reader's
attention and effectively engages them in the content. This
comes from both her considerable depth of creative talent and her empathy
for people and concern that they receive the very best of her efforts.
Nancy's attention to detail and commitment to meeting deadlines are also valuable
assets. I highly recommend her as a top level professional."
