    James Whedon, DC, MS​

    Director of Health Services Research; Professor of Research at Southern California University of Health Sciences

    OK - how many superlatives can I work into one sentence without sounding too over the top? True to her name, Sherise Bright is a BRIGHT shining star. I hope I will continue to have the pleasure and privilege of working with Sherise. She is the total package - smart, skilled, experienced, personable, attention to details without losing the big picture... Need I go on? AAA++++

    Pamela Snider, ND

    Chief Culture Officer and Special Assistant to the President at Southern California University of Health Sciences

    As Dr. Whedon states, how many superlatives can I fit into one review about Ms. Sherise Bright? I had the great fortune of working closely with Sherise as part of the leadership team at Southern California University of Health Sciences. She is an outstanding person to work with, very skilled and a great leader. She places a high value on high-quality outcomes, expressing healthy values, teamwork, humor and respectful collaboration in the workplace. She goes the extra mile and delights and inspires her colleagues along the way. Sherise embodies a unique combination of a very high level of expertise, strong delivery, innovation, creativity, compassion, impact, and efficiency. If Sherise undertakes something, it is accomplished beautifully. At a recent large conference which SCU sponsors, Sherise's leadership in SCU's marketing, messaging and public relations presence there was exceptional. I spoke with many people about SCU's vision, team and leadership while I was there – every comment from attendees and colleagues was glowing. SCU's President Scaringe, SCU and the SCU team were very visible, present, noted and quite well received. I absolutely loved what Sherise and her team did for the booth and in rallying and preparing the SCU team. I heard more than many persons express that SCU had made a very big hit as far as for sponsor presence and engagement that year. The display and booth were in a word, outstanding. Events involving the team were visible, accessible and well orchestrated resulting in dynamic connectivity and observable impacts. All sessions were excellent. Though I'd been at previous year's conferences, SCU's presence went up to a whole other level and hit the mark head on. Though built on the hard work and experience of the previous years (which Sherise respectfully acknowledged) nonetheless this experience was a quantum leap forward and an amazing job. This is just one example of how Sherise Bright is a transformative leader who gets the job done at a quantum level.

    It was my great pleasure to know and work with Sherise Bright as our VP PR and Marketing. Her first big project was the supervision of our new website. Her input and management of the designer was critical to getting a long and arduous project completed resulting in a beautiful website. She has consistently shown great care and ingenuity in her ideas and approach to PR and Marketing. She has been flexible and accommodating in shifting work priorities and has shown great care and concern for doing a great job.

     

    She has established and managed our social media.

    She has an unwavering positive attitude and brings out the best in those she works with.

    Operations Lead, Special Olympics Summer World Games at The Coca-Cola Company

    Sherise Bright is a wonderful business partner to work with. In her capacity as a Corporate Relations Manager, I've found her professionalism and follow through to be exemplary. Sherise provides all of the necessary detailed information required for decision making, but also has the ability to share the overall vision.

    Another strong intangible that Sherise demonstrates, is her ability to ensure a corporate partner's best interests are represented. Specifically, when a company such as The Coca-Cola Company enters into a sponsorship arrangement, it is important that The Company's brands are adequately represented. Sherise protects that environment for her sponsors.

    I always look forward to my interactions with Sherise, and will continue our ongoing business relationship.

    Cat Jimenez

    Executive Director/Lucie Foundation + Founder/Edition One Hundred

    I highly recommend Sherise Bright, owner of SB Communications and Digital Strategy. Recently, she executed a social media campaign for us across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and raised our profile and visibility across these platforms exponentially.

    Sherise was able to translate my hopes and visions for a social media campaign into tangible, actionable and achievable goals.

    She was very hands-on, extremely detail-oriented and met every deadline in advance. She was in constant communication with myself and my team, constantly making recommendations that would improve our campaign.

    Her commitment exceeded my expectations and her enthusiasm made her an absolute pleasure with whom to work.

    Without hesitation or doubt, I am confident in Sherise's ability to "get it", understand your goals, conceive and strategize a thorough plan and execute it successfully.

    I have known Sherise for close to 10 years; in that time I have seen her manage a myriad of projects with tact and elegance.  Her work is thorough and thoughtful, which places the client in the best possible light.  I appreciate her ability to lead disparate groups to function harmoniously.  She is a natural talent and I am grateful to know her.

    Sherise is a professional, connected, fun Publicist- I have worked with her on several occasions throughout the years, and she always exceeds my expectations with her vast knowledge and contacts within the industry, her professionalism and great attitude, and warm, generous heart. I highly recommend her!

    Cory Danziger

    Partner, Creative Director at SceneFour

    Sherise Bright IS the most dedicated publicist and brand consultant I've worked with over the last decade. She took my clothing line to a new level by introducing it to a multitude of media outlets in a captivating and strategic way. She is gold...to such an extent that I'm continually encouraging companies I'm doing businesses with to speak with her before they do anything related to publicity and outreach.
