Media Interface Training

Government Contracting and Consultancy

I’ve led and managed internal and external communications for critical U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs programs in collaboration with esteemed partners such as The American Legion, Bristol Myers-Squibb, Philips Health Care, The Prostate Cancer Foundation, Sanford Health, VFW, and Walmart. These programs span areas like tele-mental health, tele-oncology, precision medicine, precision oncology, and wellness care. Our outreach encompassed a wide range of campaigns, from podcast series and op-eds to generously donated ads, video testimonials, and comprehensive event promotions across the nation. With national dual certifications as a Women-Owned Small Business and as a Women’s Business Enterprise, a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), the gold standard for women-owned business certification in the United States, I have the ability to compete for federal grants and contracts.

I discovered Ashleigh during her stellar reporting at CBS news in Phoenix during the highly publicized “wait-list” scandal at the VA. I was immediately impressed with her professionalism, tenacity, and understanding of effective communication on all levels. During my tenure as Secretary at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, I recruited Ashleigh to serve as my lead strategy and communications advisor. She outperformed at every step and it is my belief that we would never have reached the minds and hearts of America’s Veterans were it not for her essential contribution to the VA.

Strategic Partnership Campaigns

From national commercials to informational case studies, your mission and message matters. Watch these examples of my co-creation management with companies including Sanford Health, The Prostate Cancer Foundation, T-Mobile, Verizon, and Walmart.

As a senior-level accountant at a prominent tech firm, I must convey intricate financial data to our executive team in a clear and compelling manner. The essence of executive presence is not just about communication, but also about influencing key decisions and becoming an inspirational leader for my team.

My journey with Ashleigh has been nothing short of transformative. Every session, whether it was a live presentation rehearsal or a review of a recorded panel discussion, was an opportunity for growth. Ashleigh’s feedback was always precise, actionable, and immediately applicable. She didn’t just focus on the content of my presentations, but also on the nuances of delivery – from the emphasis on certain words and modulation of voice tone to the finer details like the choice of Zoom background and attire.

With Ashleigh’s guidance, I discovered a version of myself that’s more dynamic, inspiring, and confident, yet remains true to who I am. Thanks to our collaboration, I’ve evolved into the leader I always aspired to be.
