I've been on the phone all morning telling others about this talented woman.

I found Romona's services through LinkedIn and we established a relationship using this format. I am Chairman of Membership for the National Sales Network, Washington, DC/Baltimore chapter. Recruiting and maintaining membership for any non-profit association is challenging. Romona's master of social media techniques enabled me to more than double membership in a three month period of time. She also is a great strategist and thinks out of the box with new, fresh ideas. I would recommend Romona for any organization who needs to recreate and enhance their branding and visibility. She gives more than 100% into any task she undertakes.
