from our clients

Cindy Samuelson - KHA

We collaborate on branding, marketing, communication, advertising, strategy and more. The team at Dobies is excellent! They have become an extension of our internal team.

Jan Finn - MTN

Carol and her team are very creative and responsive to our needs. I appreciate their approach and also how they push us to excel and try new things. We are a healthcare organization, yet we need their insights into how to market to our healthcare partners. They came to us with the idea of creating community engagement and partnerships with our Green Ribbon Champions. We are fortunate to have now engaged community leaders across our service area to lead with their story about supporting organ and tissue donation. I enthusiastically support Carol and the Dobies group!
