“I have worked with Stephen for nearly 17 years and have never found him to be anything less than a pleasure to work with. Stephen has the ability to take any project, whether it be light and pleasant in nature or a very serious corporate level communication and distill the core message into concise, easy to understand copy.

Stephen’s creative ability has helped me to name services, direct clever themes for program kick-offs, special events, television and radio spots and so much more. I can recommend Stephen without reservation for any project from a press release to a full blown branding strategy.”

Rick Fischer, Director of Marketing
Jefferson Regional Medical Center

“Stephen has helped the Allied Health Research Institute (AHRI) achieve rapid success and has been an invaluable assistant to the AHRI Board of Directors. He has supported membership recruitment, web site development and helped organize our annual meetings. He has helped staff our research committee and has helped publicize and screen applicants for our research fellowships.

Stephen has done an outstanding job and has consistently performed at the highest levels of performance. He has excellent interpersonal and communication skills which have helped promote and expand our organization.”

Richard Oliver, Ph.D.
Dean, School of Health Professions
University of Missouri (MU)

“On one vital project for our community hospital in Jefferson County, Stephen implemented multiple communication strategies to win a Certificate of Need (CON) through a complex state legislative process in Jefferson City, Missouri. This involved several, concurrently running marketing, community and government relations strategies. Upon successful completion of this project, he went on to add four more consecutive CON wins. Stephen’s ability to communicate effectively with a wide range of people and his “can-do” attitude are welcome attributes. He typically exceeds expectations.”

Mark A. Mertens, Former Presiding Commissioner
Jefferson County, Missouri

“Stephen knows our industry well, and it shows in his writing. It's always great to collaborate with him on projects.”

Michele Gramelspacher, Senior Communications Specialist
St. John's Mercy Health Care

“When we need a writer with the big idea, we always call Stephen. He has a flair for the "out of the box" and the ability to translate his ideas into a creative writing style that can't be beat. He throws himself into every assignment and always seems to capture the essence of the story in a compelling way.”

Janet Ryan, President
Ryan Public Relations

“Stephen really came through for us on the video promoting our new animal shelter. He wrote, produced and directed the video that was presented to a large group of prospective donors at a dinner/auction event and really captured the emotion and message we were trying to convey. The crowd loved it! Today, I use this video as an effective presentation tool to major businesses throughout our region. It tells our story beautifully! I look forward to working with him again soon. Thank you, Stephen!”

Cathey Break, President
