Praise from clients and colleagues:

Julie and Versatile Creative brought positive energy to refining a marketing plan for the Clackamas River Basin Council. Thank you for your preparation and involvement throughout the entire marketing planning process, including presenting to our Board of Directors. My intent with the marketing consulting opportunity was not only to refine communication for our Council and the Shade Our Streams program, but also for staff development. I appreciate Julie and Jenny’s professional approach and the insights you both quickly gained about our Council and individuals on our team.  – Cheryl McGinnis, Executive Director at Clackamas River Basin Council

Julie is a thoughtful and organized communicator who led the charge to reconfigure the PRSA Portland Metro Chapter’s professional development team. She developed a strategic plan for the team, worked to put the right people in the right roles and included other board members in the process. No easy task – and she did it all with the grace and confidence of a true professional. – Russell Yost,  Associate Vice President, University Communications at Willamette University

I am lucky to have Julie as a regular guest speaker in the Managing & Leading People class I teach in the UO Strategic Communications Program. Her thorough preparation, deep expertise, positive attitude, and excellent public speaking skills create an outstanding learning experience for all of us. I highly recommend Julie as an accomplished marketer, an integrated marketing communications expert, a gifted writer, and as a public speaker. – Brian McCarthy, Executive Coach at McCarthy Coaching and Instructor at Portland State University & University of Oregon
