Don’t take my word for it…

“Marisa is a skilled and talented writer and interviewer. While employed at DFW, she regularly developed storyline ideas based on activity around DFW Airport. This allowed her to interact with a variety of individuals at all levels of the organization. I was consistently pleased and impressed with her fresh approach.

I also found Marisa to be a patient teacher to new employees who joined the department. She was always willing to share her knowledge and was eager to learn from others…”

-Irene Clark, assistant vice president of Internal Communications and Diversity at Dallas/Ft. Worth International Airport


“I have known Ms. Alvarado for more than four years and have been impressed by her work ethic, her always positive attitude and her ability to creatively engage in new ways of working…

I could always count on Ms. Alvarado to follow through on any project or task assigned, no matter how large or small, and in the end she would present a finished, well-researched end product that was creative, intelligent and always worked to advance the mission of our organization.

Ms. Alvarado was constantly proposing better ways to do things resulted in increased traffic to our social media outlets and greater interaction amongst our supporters and staff.

Ms. Alvarado was able to create compelling and interesting stories for video that caught the attention of many people. She was very willing to take on new things that she was not familiar with and in, seemingly no time, she had not only accomplished her task but had figured out how to incorporate these new skills in to her daily work. She was a very impressive model of efficiency.”

– Andrew Smith, state director of Texas Pro-Life Action Team
