Gretchen is a go-getter that jumps into a project with both feet and hits the ground running! She is hard working, takes initiative and is passionate about the work she does. Gretchen is always very quick to respond, and she does a great job helping us with all aspects of the Party and Golf Classic.”

“Gretchen stepped in as a Marketing & PR consultant at a time when my partner and I were having challenges with our business and running out of ideas and resources to get our company name in front of people.  In our first brainstorming meeting, Gretchen was able to come up with ideas that hadn’t occurred to us before and walk us through how to get them started.  As someone who comes from a background of zero marketing experience, I’ve appreciated Gretchen’s advice and guidance.  She has know-how, motivation, and a discriminating eye, all of which have been key to upping our marketing game. “

Button the Bride

While I’ve known Gretchen for many years on a personal basis, this year I launched a new product/invention for the Bridal market and the first person that came to mind to spearhead by Marketing & PR campaign was Gretchen! I needed to get my name out there and create a buzz in the market, but I don’t have the connections or time to make it happen. I knew Gretchen could help me identify my target market and goals, as well as create an impressive press kit and story that would help my startup generate the amount of press necessary for success. Not only is she the most organized person I know, she genuinely cares about the success of each and every one of her clients – and will go above and beyond to ensure they are successful. Her enthusiasm is contagious, her professionalism unmatched, and her friendship is priceless. I highly recommend GDC for any company or organization wanting to launch a business or gain exposure for their product or services!
