Transformations PR did an amazing job supporting the City of ​Alexandria with our Multifamily Recycling Outreach program. ​Marissa is highly organized, responsive, strategic, and data-​driven. We met our critical milestones and were extremely pleased ​with the performance of the contract. She transformed our small ​outreach task to a strategic vision for our Multifamily recycling ​communications plan.
