“Carly is exactly the type of team player that every company needs to have in order to be successful. Having managed her as both an intern and as a junior associate, I've had the pleasure of watching her grow into a true professional who has unlimited potential.

Whether it was conducting blogger outreach, writing editorial calendars, or being a community manager on Facebook/Twitter, she was always enthusiastic about working on assignments and doing them to the best of her ability - even if she was juggling several accounts at once. She has a bright future ahead.”
