"I thought I knew quite a bit about social media tools before I met and worked with Romona. It wasn't long in working with her before I found myself learning new and useful things that proved to enhance my company's social media presence. She's very personable, savvy and results oriented and I would recommend her to anyone looking to enhance their social media presence and success in the marketplace." ~ Sylvia Baffour, Life Coach & Professional Speaker
"Romona is very attentive to her student's needs and throughout her class I felt she made sure we all got what we went there for and even more. I learned a lot and I can't wait to go back for part II. I also felt less intimidated about social media to the point that made me wonder why I didn't do that before. Thank you very much Romona!" ~ Flavia Campos, Founder of Soothing Spaces, Professional Organizers
"I had the pleasure of meeting Romona at a Linkedin seminar... The class was amazing! I went equipped with specific questions that needed answers, and she provided them. In addition to being very knowledgeable of this social media tool, she's a sharp, engaging instructor who managed to hold her students' attention. I can't wait to attend Part II of the Linkedin seminar to learn more about maximizing the benefits that this social media tool has to offer. In fact, I've already inquired about the Twitter class that she will be teaching in January 2013. Also, to finally join the social media revolution and feel comfortable doing so, I plan to take additional classes with her. Some of my friends need help navigating through these new communication tools, and I will be sure to pass Romona's name on to each and every one of them." ~ Desiree French, Communications Manager, Downtown DC Business Improvement District (BID)
