“Marla showed me how effective social media marketing could be. Based on her research, I took the plunge. Focus on Aging developed a social media plan and proved that putting my reputation in Marla’s hands was the best decision I could make. Her team implemented my plan and minimized the amount of work on my end, all at a reasonable cost. I obtained new clients, which I contribute to Marla’s hard work and marketing expertise.”

“I have known and worked with Marla since she first entered the field of aging. She immediately showed a propensity and understanding of the elderly. Over the years she has proven her selfless dedication in the industry as well as the non-profit world. Her knowledge was vital in developing a project for us while I was Commissioner. Her passion and expertise helping Casa Central has been invaluable. Without reservation I would recommend her company to any elder care or any organization needing marketing assistance.”
