"A public relations genius -- that's how to best describe Ryan Nelson. Her media relations efforts garnered more media coverage of the opening of the new East Cooper Medical Center than we could have ever anticipated. She took the time to personally tour countless reporters through our facility, providing them each the opportunity to see the new hospital first hand. Additionally, she offered them detailed information and releases to ensure the ease of their reporting. Pre-opening coverage was only the beginning to the successes Ryan achieved for East Cooper; every news station in Charleston, as well as the local newspapers, reported live from our hospital on opening day -- a feet many public relations specialists may have never accomplished.
Ryan's media background provides her the experience to know exactly how and when to angle a pitch so it will entice the interest of reporters who are searching for a news-worthy story to tell their audience. In addition to extensive media coverage, Ryan has also successfully utilized public relations initiatives to increase attendance at our hospital's screenings and community events. The number of attendees for our events has more than doubled since we began utilizing her talents. Our investment in Ryan's expertise has certainly been a smart one."

“Ryan was a joy to work with! She always went above and beyond her call of duty. Ryan's work ethic reflected in her daily one-hour long television show. As a reporter, Ryan was excellent to work with and she knew what she wanted out of a story! It was a pleasure to work with Ryan.”

“Ryan is a communications professional who knows how to handle herself with dignity. Often in live television, teleprompters die, directors/producers don't give cues on time, and last minute script and format changes are made. I've seen Ryan handle all three with humor, grace, and above all, professionalism, and she manages to do so in a way that's never apparent to those watching at home. She has extensive connections within the local community across all industries, including food and beverage, arts and entertainment and philanthropy, and she is also universally well-respected and well-liked across all industries. Ryan's also incredibly resourceful and not afraid to try new things. If she doesn't know how to do something, she is always keen to introduce you to someone who does. In short, Ryan Nelson is a pleasure to work with and all around great person to know.”
