See what people have to say about Ascend

Anasia was a great addition to our team. She provided a new and fresh perspective on all work and was eager to play an active role. Anasia was interested in learning about new work and was not timid about taking on roles to help her grow and expand. Anasia also brought her previous broadcast experience to the job and helped to produce/edit television programming as well as to host a new segment for the 2010 television series produced by SAMHSA the "Road to Recovery." Anasia is a pleasure to work with and has one of the most positive attitudes I have had the opportunity to work with in years!

Michele Monroe U.S. Dept of Health and Human Services, SAMHSA

Anasia is a multi-talented professional who is able to assess situations and quickly see improvement possibilities. As a program manager working on a highly complex project with many facets, she was able to balance the load and keep up with a fast-pace. Her energetic and positive attitude was appreciated in stressful times and I would highly recommend Anasia as a wonderful asset for any team.

Jan Gruenwald Espiritu Kaiser Permanente

Anasia and the team at Ascend Brand Communications have been an exceptional PR partner for me and my non-profit organization Willville Foundation. I have come to rely on their experience, connections, competence, creativity, positive attitude and tenacity for all my communications needs. We look forward to continuing our partnership with them as we grow and spread our mission to empower and build the self-esteem of our youth.

Artose Pinner Former NFL player

As an award-winning international speaker, one of my goals was to hone my media interviewing skills to help elevate my brand. Working with Anasia, I was able to meet that goal and secure multiple media interviews, including renowned national magazines and online media. The exposure has advanced my brand and helped me secure additional interviews and speaking engagements. I highly recommend partnering with Anasia as your media interview coach.

Tana M. Session "Huffington Post Top Female Experts to Follow in 2018"

The media training at Ascend Brand Communications has truly transformed the way I do media interviews. Anasia is engaging and her techniques have helped me craft my story and better connect with the audience. Her honest feedback in mock interviews is invaluable to anyone who wants to shine

Jessica Rich Owner and Designer, Jessica Rich Collection

Working with Anasia is empowering. She gave me the tools not only to assert my narrative and avoid traps, but also to shape messaging to withstand inauthentic framing and biases. Anasia provides more than the practical basics of media training, she helps clients develop a comprehensive understanding of why and how media works. At a time when my community is under political attack in state legislatures and national media, Anasia equipped me to face opponents directly and ensure that portrayals of LGBTQ communities are authentically presented.
