From the moment Ashley and I connected several years ago, before I even had a draft of my book written, she believed in me and in my potential to spread my message and mission throughout the world. Before my book was published, Ashley and her team “seasoned” me by booking my first-ever local TV appearances and a bunch of local and national radio interviews. Then, on publication day, they organized a radio media tour, and before I knew it they had landed me interview segments on THE DOCTORS and Fox News Health! Nardi Media was there every step of the way and helped catapult my book onto the New York Times Best-Sellers list. I know I wouldn’t have that honor without Ashley’s tireless devotion to my mission and helping get the word out about Bright Line Eating. If you’re looking for incredible media support and expertise beyond compare, Ashley and Nardi Media is the only choice!

“Our biography of Freddie Steinmark is powerful and inspirational; however, much of the story has a Texas and mid-west focus. This made getting national exposure especially challenging. Ashley’s talent, enthusiasm, and network of relationships were up to the task and secured great coverage for our book, including CBS This Morning. Plus, she was a terrific coach preparing us for interviews. She and her team masterfully leveraged our work to the fullest extent. Truly a joy to work with!”

“Ashley Bernardi worked with me on my book, “Even the Odds: Sensible Risk-Taking” and she had the energy, initiative, insights, and contacts to move my media effort to a level I would never have achieved otherwise. As a first time author, I needed someone like Ashley to set the program, tirelessly work her contacts in the industry, and instruct me on the specifics of many appearances.”

“If there was such a thing as an Emmy award for best publicist, Ashley would easily sweep the nominations. She’s basically the Beyonce of the media relations world. Getting my team booked onto shows like Let’s Talk Live, WTOP, and Good Morning Washington was simply a matter of having Ashley pick up the phone and call a few friends. She juggled the scheduling and booking details with precision and made it look easy. Ashley was also able to give us advice on how to best pitch our franchise to the media, and how to make our TV and radio appearances more effective. Out of 150 franchises nationwide, Just Between Friends of Eastern Fairfax was awarded the National Rising Star award, and took home a plethora of other awards in 2016. Connecting with Ashley Bernardi and trusting our publicity to her team was a huge part of our success. With Ashley’s help, a new business serving a few local moms quickly turned into a HUGE community event with THOUSANDS of participants. We’re thrilled with our return on investment from working with Nardi Media.”

“I was a relatively unknown first-time author and Ashley was fantastic in getting my name out there, and ultimately booking me on national TV and radio, as well as major podcasts. She also provided top-notch media training and was always a great listener and advisor. Finally, she was on top of everything and we communicated constantly. I couldn’t have been happier about her efforts on behalf of my book launch!”

“There is nothing Ashley Bernardi cannot do when it comes to media.  She books top people for TV shows and national conferences and knows the business inside out. I worked closely with Ashley at the Washington Post  and she is not only savvy, but great to be around. She is the always cheerful, smart voice on the other end of the phone who persuades busy people to drop everything they are doing and do what Ashley tells them.”

“Ashley Bernardi is a dynamic professional who consistently produces excellent results.  In my three years working with Ashley as the head booker at Clean Skies News/EnergyNOW!, I never saw her fail to complete a job she had been assigned – and complete it admirably. Ashley is creative, energetic and goal-oriented, a true team player who works congenially with other professionals but can also be relied on to execute an assignment on her own. Ashley is the person I wanted on my team when I faced a challenging assignment!”

Margaret Ryan, Energy Journalist & Analyst

Ashley is smart, thorough, quick, creative, and incredibly hard working. Most importantly, to be a successful media liaison and guest booker, relationships are everything. Ashley is a genuinely lovely person, and she wins the respect and trust of everyone she works with. She is the first person I call whenever I need a guest booker or segment producer.”

“I am so pleased that Ashley is embarking on this new venture. For many years she has shined as an outstanding booker and producer at CBS News and at start-ups including Clean Skies News.  She was my first hire at Clean Skies, and was the shining star among the pack. She has always had  tremendous dedication to her work, and an untiring ability to accomplish whatever faces her, letting no obstacle stand in the way of an outstanding product.  She consistently goes above and beyond expectations, and never takes “no” as an answer, and never settles for less than outstanding. I would hire Ashley again. And again. And again.”

“Working with Ashley Bernardi was an amazing experience. Nardi Media ended up being the best investment for media publicity I could have made. Ashley’s professionalism, positive energy, support, and RESULTS were phenomenal. Talk about a person who knows what she is doing! Within days, Ashley had me booked and ready to promote my business on several local televisions, two radio stations, and on two magazines.
