Linked-In reference from the late Pamela Hunter, “After 43 years in journalism then public relations and marketing, I can think of only two people I was delighted to see every single day we worked together. Ashley Teplin is one. If more people had her philosophy and approach, problems would be solved quickly, creatively and with pleasure. She is smart, inventive and delightful. In terms of integrity, she is off the charts. Indeed, I defy her next employer or client to find her equal in this regard.” March 17, 2010
