“As someone who knows about dealing with celebrities, I can tell you that she is magic with the entertainment community as well. That’s a skill only learned by observing and having a trained ear and actually not relying on Twitter. She’s old school in her approach and new school in her finished product.
She’s always working....looking for the next big thing and preserving the current big thing.
PLUS, and get this, she’s nice! --Pat O’Brien” Emmy Award winning television and radio host formerly of Access Hollywood, Hollywood Walk of Fame Star recipient, and South Dakota Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Member.
