I knew Kathryn would be my saving grace. Her connections, her media savvy, her organization, and her quickness is an asset… she is born with incredible business skills and her recommendations for media were localized and strategic. She handled the hard stuff with ease, and when I needed last minute assistance, onsite in Chicago, she said “I got this. Tell me time and location.” And just like the fairy Godmother of Everything, she granted that wish too.

Emilia Serrano | TV/FILM Writer, ABC, Fox, TNT

When I need the best in Chicago for media coaching, executive production, TV production/personality or scripting, editing and telling “THE STORY”; I go to Kathryn Janicek! There is no one else in the country I would rely on for my media and production strategies than Kathryn.

She knows how to position you to reach the biggest audience and has the relationships to take advantage of everything she teaches.
