“Fleishman-Hillard Canada worked with Andrea Holwegner on a Canada-wide media tour. Fleishman-Hillard Canada was engaged in June to conduct a media tour in July. This was exceptionally tight timing, especially given that our client’s national mandate meant that we targeted eleven English-speaking markets. Throughout, Andrea was accommodating, professional and an exemplary spokesperson. Her passion for healthy living, paired with her confident and enthusiastic delivery resulted in extremely positive, well-messaged coverage. We look forward to working with her again.”

She has informed our viewers on trendy and timely topics from how to lose those last five pounds, to the most asked questions on carbs and sugar. Her segments are not only very informative but her visual displays are top-notch. She is easy to work with, is well prepared and has never been late. I would recommend her for her own TV gig any time!”
