What Recent Clients and Partners Have To Say

Heading 1

I've always wanted to have my own fast-casual restaurant brand. When the opportunity finally knocked, the first person I called was Maggie! She knows branding like nobody's business and I knew she could take my idea and turn it into something unique and compelling. Which she and Prolific did! While the pandemic delayed our original launch plans, Maggie continuously worked to enhance the concept and we had our Grand Opening at Super Bowl LVIII in partnership with Levy Restaurants at Allegiant Stadium. The rest will be history!

Celebrity Chef Robert "Chef Stew" Stewart

Founder & Culinary Director 

I've worked with Maggie for many years in a number of capacities. She brings tremendous strategic and creative insight into every initiative - from Prolific Creative itself to our pitches to our clients' needs. Her work ethic is amazing, she is super resourceful and efficient, and awesome to work with. Above all of that, Maggie is a GREAT writer; I can count on her words to turn anything into gold.

Jessica Lee 

Founder & Executive Creative Director

Maggie started adding value to the(sugar)science from our very first conversation. We are a non-profit organization offering an open source platform for global scientific communication and collaboration to improve therapies and work toward a cure for Type 1 Diabetes. She is an incredibly quick study, sprinting up the learning curve to deliver incisive strategic and business perspectives. She has helped take what I built on a relatively small scale, vision it to be something much much larger, and create the action plan(s) to get there.

Monica Westly, PhD 

Founder & President

When it became clear, for several reasons, that the Nalley Fresh brand needed to pivot, the person I knew was mission-critical was Maggie. She was obviously familiar with the brand, its history, the industry, but more than that, I knew she would be able to brilliantly position us in a related, but entirely new, market segment (drive-thru vs. brick-and-mortar restaurants). Her work has already helped secure funding for Nalley Fresh Go! and has attracted a ton of marketplace interest.

Greg Nalley

Founder & Culinary Director

When the pandemic squashed my plans to open TribeFit OC in March 2020, I was devastated and panicked. But after having completed the Brand Assessment from Prolific Ink Agency, I realized the pause was a blessing in disguise. The insights and actionable recommendations that Jessica (Lee) and Maggie made took TribeFit OC to a totally new level. Maggie was really able to "get into my head and heart" to understand what makes the brand tick and was able to bring that to life with incredible website content and a really smart, comprehensive social media strategy. We're finally open, busy and 2021 is going to be awesome!

Ahmed Tafti

Founder & Lead Trainer

Maggie really did take Rib Shack BBQ to the next level! With comprehensive research, a truly deep understanding of what we wanted to stand for, and her fantastic strategic and creative abilities, we repositioned the brand: Rib Shack BBQ - Raising the Bar in Bar-be-que. This became the basis for very motivating pitches to malls/food courts, convenience stores, food trucks, packaged goods manufacturers and franchise developers. Even though RSB wasn't able to realize its potential (due to factors outside of our control), I am always excited get Maggie's input as I continue to develop new concepts.

Essi Tadrus 

Founder, Culinary Director & Chief Creative Officer

Maggie has a great feel for what wellness-minded consumers are thinking about, motivated by, and looking for. She's particularly gifted at researching and leveraging current trends, creating community, and connecting businesses, organizations, and customers in ways that get everyone talking (and buying). Be ready for big results.   

Monica Reinagel, MS, LD/N (the "Nutrition Diva")

Maggie made more contributions to Nalley Fresh than I can possibly list. Without a shadow of a doubt, she gave 120% to everything she did – from building Nalley Fresh’s brand platform, big picture business planning, social media, franchise development and strategic partnerships. Her keen sense of industry trends definitely kept us ahead of the curve. Her passion to bring healthy eating to multiple populations created great momentum for our concept and our team. I cannot thank Maggie enough for all her hard work and dedication to helping make Nalley Fresh what it is today and in laying a foundation for our bright future.

Greg Nalley

Founder & Culinary Director 

For all practical purposes, The Food Project has been made possible by Maggie.  Her incredible ability to take big picture thinking and turn it into innovative action took the germ of an idea for a community service program to help the youth of SW Baltimore and turned it into a multi-faceted movement.  Her ideas and resourcefulness have enabled us to bring together non-profits, business, government, education and media in unprecendented ways. And, she is an absolute joy to work with! I look forward to her helping launch The Food Project in 2018 and continuing to make a difference in so many people's lives.

Michelle Suazo

 Founder & Director, UEMPOWER of Maryland 

My firm, Renegade Communications, worked closely with Maggie when she was driving the branding and marketing efforts for a privately held, multi-unit fast casual restaurant in the Baltimore Metro area. Maggie is a high-energy ideas person who is strategically incisive, has a real 360 degree understanding of brand intricacies and the ability to provide excellent creative direction.  I found her to be a decisive and thorough communicator who consistently brought enthusiasm and positive energy to each interaction. 

Kory McCann 

Sr. Director of Strategic Partnerships

Maggie was instrumental in helping a client get to a favorable trademark licensing agreement with a Fortune 1000 company. Her understanding of Intellectual Property law, ability to stay focused and provide strategic insights through complex negotiations, in conjunction with her significant leadership skills, make her an asset to any team.

 Alexander W. Koff, Esq. 

Partner, Venable LLP

Maggie's contributions to the development of the Confidential Information Memorandum for one of our clients were invaluable. Her high-level strategic analyses and input, comprehensive industry knowledge and understanding of how to put together an incisive marketing document for the investment community helped us deliver a strong offering.  

Timothy D. Lewis

Managing Director, Chesapeake Corporate Advisors

It was a great pleasure working with Maggie to craft our (McCormick & Company) strategic partnership with Nalley Fresh. She brought in-depth knowledge of the consumer products and food service spaces to the table and always had lots of great ideas that she turned into effective executions.  I definitely recommend her as a go-to, get-it-done member of any team.

Tom Heavey

US Industrial Group Sales Manager, McCormick & Company, Inc.

h2ope would never have gotten to where it did without Maggie. Her knowledge of consumer packaged goods, branding and brand ethos, sophisticated and guerilla marketing communications were truly impressive. Her willingness to venture into unchartered waters, roll up her sleeves to quickly learn about pretty much anything and tackle any task successfully made her a great partner in the venture.

Ruthanna Terreri

Founder Hope Water Foundation/h2ope Water, Inc.

In my efforts to seek investors to grow my kardea Nutrition business from a single SKU to a bona fide brand, Maggie had incredible vision about what kardea could be (her recommendations were in the territory of Kashi and Newman's Own - two of the very few brands that have successfully crossed product categories while maintaining the brand ethos). She also was able to help me craft an investor presentation which was heralded as one of the absolutely best CPG offerings the various entities had ever seen.

Rob Leighton

Founder kardea Nutrition, Inc.

Maggie most definitely added value to Build Healthy Kids. Her working knowledge of nutrition and indefatigable commitment to helping children, schools and families embrace healthy eating, and ability to find strong strategic partners to bring BHK to life, really shaped it into something marketable. She was also very helpful in the editing of (my book) Nutrition Bites, as she was able to make information about nutrition and healthy eating easily understandable to even the most uninformed reader. 

Dr. Deborah Kennedy, "Dr. Deb"

Nutrition Options LLC

I had the pleasure of working with Maggie as a member of the Angel Investor Forum. She brought expansive knowledge of consumer products and marketing communications to our group and added value to a number of prospective companies seeking funding.

Liddy Karter

Managing Director, Enhanced Capital Partners
