What our clients say


  • As a small non-profit, we are very fortunate to have a great partnership with Epiphany. Christa instinctively knew the visual appeal we would need so our event would capture the attention we were hoping for. Epiphany truly cares and are invested in the success of their clients and we could not be happier with our results.
    Shelley Woods, Executive Director
    Linn-Mar School Foundation
  • Anna thrives when there are multiple challenges facing her, and has the unique ability to grasp long-term goals while managing day-to-day activities. She is also a master at event planning, no detail is too small or unimportant—exactly what is needed at an important gathering of influential people. I can definitely say Anna is one of the most talented, hard-working executives with whom I have had the pleasure to work.
    Joe Lock, President & CEO
    Eastern Iowa Health Center
  • Christa has been one of the shining star teammates at Veterans Legal Support Network. From our inception she has created, suggested, improved and basically ran our website vlsn.org from the day we started. I know how good she is because people tell me all the time what an impressive web presence we have and it is ALL because of her. When we needed it, she linked technologies so our Facebook feed was immediately updated and thereby gave us a critical "current" look that changed as soon as we made any updates or added stories. She is always on the lookout for new ideas for us and I'm lucky we found her when we did. I would unequivocally recommend Christa and Epiphany and actually have to 2 other law firms. You'll be happy you did too. Semper Fidelis
