“Nancy Mayes is one of those unique project managers who makes me feel that I don’t have to check my creativity at the door in order to solve the client’s communication problems. I can’t tell you how important that is to me as a photographer. Equally important, Nancy is also wonderfully good at wrangling project logistics making her a pleasure to work with. Her attention to detail is extraordinary.”

–Richard Anderson
Owner, Richard Anderson Photography


“I have worked with the Mayes Communications team for more than five years, and they continue to provide unparalleled expertise and work. They serve as a seamless extension of our in-house PR team, both remotely and on-site for our scientific/medical meetings and peer-reviewed journals, and they go above and beyond every single time. They incorporate strategic planning and organization, and adapt to each project’s needs. Mayes Communications is at the top of the list for the best PR support of our scientific/medical programs and services.”

Director of Strategic Communications & Media Relations,

“The Styrene Information and Research Center (SIRC) has been fortunate to have Nancy Mayes’ skilled oversight of its communications program since 2006. From the beginning, Nancy dealt with SIRC scientific research and regulatory issues that are highly technical and complex, distilling this information into language that is both accessible and informative – not just to our members, but the media and public as well. In her tenure with SIRC, Nancy took on a comprehensive re-branding of the organization, resulting in a much-needed enhancement of SIRC’s overall corporate visual image. At the day-to-day level, Nancy provides important media monitoring and response, and produces several impactful internal communications to keep our members up-to-speed on issues and news of importance. Perhaps most importantly, Nancy has proven to be a very hands-on and proactive member of our consult corps, making certain that she is always out ahead in planning and execution of projects, to ensure that SIRC is well prepared to handle any media or communications issues that arise.”

— Jack Snyder
Executive Director,
Styrene Information & Research Center


“We hired Mayes Communications to help us develop our 2010, 2011 and 2012 Community Benefit Annual Reports. We had to balance multiple needs, desires and visions to tell fairly complex stories of our investments in community health. Nancy, with her superb arsenal of partners — designers, photographers, etc. — helped us hit a home run with these publications! Years 2010 and 2011, particularly, were exceptional — winning awards from the D.C. and Maryland chapters of Public Relations Society of America. Kaiser Permanente continues to enjoy a great working relationship with Mayes Communications.”

— Celeste James
Director, Community Health
Kaiser Permanente Mid-Atlantic States


“I’m amazed at the breadth of expert-level services that Mayes Communications offers. On our many projects together, Nancy has been a writer, editor, photo director, event planner, project manager, creative director, pr expert, production manager, client contact, researcher, and more — all with expert-level quality and attention to detail. No matter her role, Nancy operates with control, mastery and good humor. Nancy is able to manage the big picture — and navigate project details and minutiae — all with enviable finesse. MayesComm is a truly versatile professional group. I’m glad to have contributed to a few of the informed, multi-level successes that Nancy and her team have enabled.”

— Kathryn Grill Hoepple
Owner, Grill Graphic Design


“Working with Nancy Mayes is simply delightful. We have worked on five projects together over the last few years. She turned our content into something that captured the spirit and essence of our training programs. She masterfully developed newsletters whose message sprang off the page. Every project with Nancy and the MayesComm team was effortless. We felt like we were always in the expert hands of a writing genius and project management master. I look forward to our next project together.”

— Laura Peterson
RTI International


“In the eight years I have worked with Nancy Mayes, I have found her to be a true professional in all aspects of her work — totally reliable, highest quality, results oriented and with a can-do attitude that makes her a truly valuable asset to any organization needing public relations services. She has delivered top-notch work on every project with which she has been involved for Walker Communications, and carries my very highest recommendation.”

— Joseph L. Walker III, APR
President, Walker Communications


“Mayes Communication gave us the creative edge to raise and maintain employee awareness about very technical issues that are often difficult to communicate. Nancy is an expert at targeting communications to the right audience, at the right time, and in the right format to assure that the message gets delivered… and remembered.”

— Donnetta Horseman
Corporate Compliance Officer,
Moffitt Cancer Center


“I have had the pleasure to work with Nancy Mayes on a variety of projects such as annual reports, brochures, and executing public relations plans for national and international industry conferences. Nancy has a wealth of knowledge in the fields of marketing and public relations and she knows how to apply that knowledge in a practical and results oriented way. Nancy is the first person I call whenever I have the need for additional project support.”

— Sabrina McGowan

“I welcome opportunities to work with Nancy Mayes and Mayes Communications and to introduce her to my clients.
