"I've worked with other staffing agencies before, and the term
"creative" seems nebulous to most of them. Working with Cynthia has afforded me the opportunity to be involved in many exciting
opportunities, constantly developing my portfolio over the years.
Understanding creative minds is the difference, and she's placed me in environments where I've thrived."

Tracey prides herself on driving to the bottom line of each story, so that readers know not only what the news means to them, but what it will cost them.

They’re simply not finished."

She’s not only capable of asking the hard questions, but of obtaining answers and conveying them in a way that are meaningful and actionable for the reader.
