"As I transitioned into the leadership role at CUCA, it was nice to have the support offered by Diane Cherry Consulting. Diane was understanding/responsive of my needs and helped CUCA revamp the website, post on social media, develop communication materials, hold press conferences, coordinate with media, and much more. Diane helped us get us through the transition to the point we can stand on our own today. All of this in the midst of the pandemic. Thank you Diane."
