Advertising, Marketing, Sales, Screenwriting and Ghostwriting Professional Review
“Elana is a very detailed, creative individual that is able to drive several projects at once and with ease. She possesses strong communications skills and a knack for technology, which makes working with her a pleasure. When you work with her she goes over and beyond to make sure she delivers as promised, which in this world of questionable ethics and short-term thinking, is a breath of fresh air. She is very helpful and will earn your trust with her valuable insights about marketing and her ability to write effective content. Elana is also a prolific screenwriter and ghostwriter.”
