I’ve found Lauren from ALL Over Newton to be a tenacious marking representative, especially when it comes to social media outreach. Through her use of copy and media she makes us look as fabulous as we feel we are. Her All Over Newton Blog is the perfect way to get in front of potential Newton customers and beyond. Lauren just has a way of bringing everything together.

The holiday pop-up event was amazing. It was carefully coordinated by Lauren, which was no small feat given how many local shops and pop-ups were involved. It was also very well advertised, and drew many customers who were very excited to find new local, small businesses. Even though it was my last event of a very busy holiday season, it was one of the most fun and rewarding!
