  • Laura Dunkley has transformed my business proving to me and my patients of the merits of why a real professional should both be consulted with and listened too. Communication using social media assets was more than a challenge for me and Laura has opened new channels of access and referrals to my growing practice. Understanding that consumer education and patient education are two separate entities was the first revelation that made the difference. I now have an active communication profile for which my business has dynamic momentum necessary to serve my patients. (Nov. 2013)
    Dr. Joe Pelino - Doctor of Chiropractic | Sports Medicine

Going well beyond what was asked of her, Laura tirelessly worked with the NSI volunteer and staff team to ensure that the final product (a strategic plan that touched on all aspects of the organization) had been perfected. Laura continues to help with NSI in an advisory role and her expertise and creative thinking are welcomed contributions. (Sept 30, 2013)
