What others are saying...

Christa has consulted on our communications and social media strategy for over 10 years. Her digital marketing knowledge has been invaluable in growing our organization's online reach across the country and around the world. She has been integral in establishing ATN's brand, working to develop our current logo and communications guide. Christa is highly responsive and always willing to creatively design projects that work in our all-volunteer organization.
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.
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.
