Erica was a true professional and extremely helpful in filming our corporate video. She listened to our requests, made our film participant look great, and provided many helpful hints including wardrobe adjustments. She stayed for the day and kept everyone looking good. She provides great service, great skill and a positive attitude, and I am happy to recommend her. ---Marketing Department, Continental Tire the Americas, LLC (one of world's largest tire manufacturers)
