"As owner of a marketing agency with a wide range of clients, I find Erin to be an inspiring, intuitive and passionate creative leader who never lets us rest on our laurels. With her deep breadth of branding experience and diverse perspectives, she broadens our thinking and gives us a much-needed push out of our comfort zone. Erin is a breath of fresh air. She doesn’t just talk about thinking differently, she embodies it. And the results are game-changing."
"I hired Erin to freelance with me twice. At the first agency, her work produced 8 consecutive quarters of same-store growth for IHOP making it #1 in its category.
"I had the pleasure of working with Erin when I led the youth marketing practice at Ogilvy. Erin is a rare talent, conceptual thinker and terrific writer. She's a pleasure to work with and brings with her a distinct voice and style that is all her own. Having spent years in the trenches with her on a variety of successful projects and new business pitches, I would highly recommend Erin to anyone in need of unique creative talent."
"Erin is a very professional and intuitive writer who gets straight to the heart of a brief, gets a feeling for the target audience, gets the tone right and works to a deadline. She is also a delight to have in the agency, she’s friendly and funny, and mixes well with everyone in client service and creative."
"I partnered with Erin on a few projects and worked along side her and her partner throughout my time at Ogilvy. Erin is a super talented, smart, witty writer with a great sense of humor and approach that makes her easy to partner with. She can tackle many different voices in her writing, and is always amped to take on a new challenge. She was a pleasure to work with, hope to work alongside her again some day."
"I've known and had the pleasure of working with Erin since the beginning of my career. First as a colleague and copywriter partner, and now as a valued voice-over talent for one of our most important clients. Erin has always been a consummate professional in everything she does, and dare I say my own portfolio past and present wouldn't sound nearly as good without Erin's influence. Two thumbs up for sure."
