June 23, 2011 : “I first hired Michele as Director of Communications at SyMedica's corporate office in Franklin, Tennessee. She excelled in her role as our corporate communications representative to the enormous corporate healthcare industry presence in Greater Nashville. As a person who wishes to see others maximize their potential, I suggested to Michele that her abilities were exceptional and recommended she open her own shop for public relations, marketing, and advertizing. She did just that after three years with SyMedica and continues to not only assist SyMedica, but many of our corporate healthcare clients. Healthcare is not an easy arena for communications as it requires constant vigilance as to regulatory change affecting how we approach our industry and our consumers. I consider that ability to be Michele's greatest added value to her clients, as she keeps them informed about trends and responsibilities.

Our clients routinely thank me for introducing them to Michele and Communication Elements, as her insight is uncanny as to timing, trending, branding strategy, and content specificity for demographic targeting. Furthermore, she provides her professional services to her clients as if she were a trusted friend or family member. I highly recommend Michele and her colleagues at Communication Elements.”

Bob Coates, president of SyMedic, hired Michele as a Business Consultant in 2007, and hired Michele and Communication Elements more than once.
