“I’m not sure we have ever had any one person who has done more for our brand than Noreen. It’s not just the out of the box things she produces, it’s getting through the clutter and scoring segments on major TV & Radio. She could run for Mayor in this town, she’s loved and treasured by her clients and the media. No one that I know cares more about our brand and how we can make it grow here in the Windy City more than Noreen Heron!” Peter Carlson, Regional Director, Massage Envy
