“Nancy Mayes is one of those unique project managers who makes me feel that I don’t have to check my creativity at the door in order to solve the client’s communication problems. I can’t tell you how important that is to me as a photographer. Equally important, Nancy is also wonderfully good at wrangling project logistics making her a pleasure to work with. Her attention to detail is extraordinary.”

—Richard Anderson, Owner, Richard Anderson Photography

“The Styrene Information and Research Center has been fortunate to have Nancy Mayes’ skilled oversight of its communications program since 2006...Nancy has proven to be a very hands-on and proactive member of our consult corps, making certain that she is always out ahead in planning and execution of projects, to ensure that SIRC is well prepared to handle any media or communications issues that arise.”

—Jack Snyder, Executive Director (retired), Styrene Information & Research Center

“We hired Mayes Communications—now Blue Wagon Group—to help us develop our 2010, 2011 and 2012 Community Benefit Annual Reports. We had to balance multiple needs, desires and visions to tell fairly complex stories of our investments in community health. Nancy, with her superb arsenal of partners—designers, photographers, etc.—helped us hit a home run with these publications! Years 2010 and 2011, particularly, were exceptional—winning awards from the D.C. and Maryland chapters of Public Relations Society of America. Kaiser Permanente continues to enjoy a great working relationship with Mayes Communications.”

—Celeste James, Executive Director, Community Health, Kaiser Permanente Mid-Atlantic States

“I have had the pleasure to work with Nancy Mayes on a variety of projects such as annual reports, brochures, and executing public relations plans for national and international industry conferences. Nancy has a wealth of knowledge in the fields of marketing and public relations and she knows how to apply that knowledge in a practical and results oriented way. Nancy is the first person I call whenever I have the need for additional project support.”

—Sabrina McGowan, Owner, SQM Public Relations

“In the eight years I have worked with Nancy Mayes, I have found her to be a true professional in all aspects of her work — totally reliable, highest quality, results oriented and with a can-do attitude that makes her a truly valuable asset to any organization needing public relations services. She has delivered top-notch work on every project with which she has been involved for Walker Communications, and carries my very highest recommendation.”

—Joseph L. Walker III, APR, President, Walker Communications
