“Smart and capable are two of the adjectives I would use when describing Shana Martin. Shana and I worked together for 15 months and I was particularly impressed with how she jumped right into a new organization and new areas of responsibility with no trepidation – just passion and excitement. She brought immediate value to her internal clients with integrated marketing campaigns that delivered on business objectives. In addition to excelling at the core marketing elements of her job, Shana demonstrated herself to be a skillful, creative writer, with the unique ability to turn even the most complex topic into something easily understandable and consumable for the reader while avoiding jargon. In working closely with her on a number of projects, it was clear to me Shana always took a lot of pride in her work, which served as a great example for the rest of the team. I would highly recommend Shana as a member of any marketing or communications team.”
