Here’s what our client had to say about our planning, execution, and use, of our state of the art Studio to help create and deliver the incredible message that Teen Cancer America is promoting about liquid biopsy technology.

This large scale virtual event is a perfect example of how we use The Studio to bring your message to life and communicate it to your stakeholders. Thank you to Jamie for the five star review and thank you to everyone who brought this event together!

Today we’re excited to share some fun facts about one of the newest members of our team, Heather Blanken!

✨ She was an extra in the movie "Bull Durham" (her hometown) as a spectator 🎬.
✨ Is an Elon University graduate. The ceremony should have been “under the oaks”, but was moved indoors due to rain, for the first time in 40 years! 🎓
✨ Got married at Sarah P. Duke Gardens during Easter weekend in 2007. It was 80 degrees early that week but by Saturday it snowed a little and was 50 degrees with high winds…NC weather, amirite? ☀❄
✨ Has 7 year old fraternal twins, Vivienne and Victoria! 👭
✨ If you have trouble finding her, just listen out for her laugh….it’s one of her signature traits 😂.

Drop a 👍 to help us welcome Heather to the team!
