"Andrea was informative, professional and right on target when she prepared me for a TV interview, which went very well.  She chose the outfit, rehearsed me in questions, and advised me on how to walk, talk and be more present to the interviewer.  I highly recommend her services."

Susan Prickett
Owner/Midwest Talent Manager
 
"Andrea is a natural born leader. She loves people, and can mentor and coach them into successes they never could have imagined without her leadership skills. Whether she is working in production, traveling to speak about her businesses, or teaching a cardio class sure to make her clients sweat, they rarely will see her sweat anything. She has an amazing ability to be professionally cool and personally warm at the same time. That quality that those around her notice immediately and would want to duplicate, borrow or steal, if only that were possible. Hiring her, whether it be on a special project basis or an exciting new venture, will increase the overall value of your team and of its results."

"Andrea recently helped me craft a much-needed new intro for the various networking meetings I attend. My new intro brings humor and new life to telling people about my services. In short order Andrea helped me create and practice a 30-second “infomercial” that captures my offerings and allows me to vary the content depending on what I would like to emphasize.
Thanks, Andrea…you’re the best!"

Andrea is first of all personable and kind to everyone. She is very good at what she does and the insight she brings to a project is invaluable. I believe she would make a terrific director if given the opportunity. I for one would jump at the chance to work with her in that capacity."

Marcy Guiragossian 
Set PA/BG Coordinator

"It is with great pleasure that I write a recommendation for Andrea Deveaux with whom I’ve had the pleasure to work on several films and the episodic TV show Trauma, shot in the Bay Area, where she was Script Supervisor.
 
Andrea’s calm, professional demeanor is a welcome addition to the set where her organizational skills and attention to detail are unsurpassed!
 
Whenever I see her name on a call sheet, I am relieved and know I can rely on her to keep me informed as to what has been shot, needs to be shot, & if I need precise information not readily available by the busy ADs or other PAs!
 
She is generous with her time and knowledge as well."
