Enrollment is at 90% capacity and we've been named #1 rated Childcare Center in Loudoun County

"I have worked at the Leesburg Open Arms (LOA) Christian Child Development Center since it opened in September 2008, first as Assistant Director and for the last four years as the Center Director. LOA was going through some rough times in 2010/2011 - declining enrollment fueled by financial difficulties.  Prior to my taking over as Director, there were some serious questions as to whether our childcare center could effectively continue its operations. However, supported by Theresa’s careful guidance and efforts, LOA turned around.  Enrollment at LOA is now up to nearly 90% capacity and we've consistently been named as the #1 rated Childcare Facility in Loudoun County. Theresa has been one of the key advisors to our childcare facility and a valued advisor to me personally in my role as Director.  Plus she has been a major guiding force in effective marketing of our childcare center. I heartily endorse Theresa and her company as a valuable resource in support of any educational facility."

Brings significant level of expertise in capturing a high level of exposure to relevant audiences

"I have had the pleasure of working with Theresa Stenger for over seven years. She has helped in many ways launch my 2nd chapter of life after retiring from my 30-year dental practice. Theresa started with me on the ground floor, helping me establish my consulting firm Leadership by Design. Although marketing is her area of expertise, she brings many other skills to the table in establishing a cohesive brand for organizations through her ability to design, write script, study the market and connect with the audience I was trying to capture. One of the greatest strengths she brings is helping businesses understand and deliver relevant messages to your various audiences through her thorough research abilities.  I would have overlooked this depth and moved onto another idea before the previous idea was finished.  This has proved very valuable for me in developing substance around my vision and building out different components of my business. Theresa's multiple talents and education helped me to develop a professional brand with materials and content that provides great value in connecting with my various clients in health care, education, churches and the dental industry. Two other areas that can not be overlooked is her outstanding listening skills which she applies in developing plans for development of different phases of a project.  She brings a significant level of expertise in capturing a high  level of  exposure to the relevant audiences. Engaging, creative, analytical and her knowledge base are talents that allow Theresa to bring great value to any business that incorporates her skill set and strengths."
