"Nardi Media changed the trajectory of my writing career. As a result of their creative brainstorming, diligent process, and thoughtful communication, not only were so many doors opened for me, but I felt confident and prepared to walk through them."
Leah Moore, Author of Loving You Big
"The outstanding team at Nardi Media are true professionals - competent, creative, dedicated, proactive, flexible, timely, passionate and strategic as well as operational. As a first time author, Nardi helped me tremendously in taking my message of hope and resilience to audiences of different types of media companies and platforms - online, print podcast, radio and TV. They practice their craft very well."
Sameer Bhide, Author of One Fine Day
"Ashley brings all of herself into her work with her clients: her know-how from her many years as a producer and publicist, her passion for content that will make positive waves in the world, and her huge heart which creates long-lasting relationships. My book launch wasn’t just successful because of my work with Ashley and her team- it was also fun and fulfilling too!"
Randi Zinn, Author of Going Beyond Mom: How to Activate Your Mind, Body, and Business after Baby Founder of The Going Beyond Movement
“Ashley Bernardi and her incredible team Nardi Media are far and away the best media team I have worked with in my career. The passion, skill, knowledge, and commitment they brought to their work on my behalf weren’t just phenomenal, they also played a central role in making my book launch a success.”
Jamie Metzl, Author of Hacking Darwin: Genetic Engineering and the Future of Humanity
"I've worked in publishing and book marketing for over 15 years, and there's no one quite like Nardi Media. They are always my go-to because they do the best job possible for their clients. They support authors with intentional and purposeful campaigns, incredible media placements, and (even better) compassionate client relationships. When you decide to hire them, you are investing in good people, and that makes all the difference. There's not a call Ashley and her team doesn't return or an email that doesn't get thoughtfully responded to. Media and marketing firms can be a risky investment and can feel almost impossible to get a strong return on, but Nardi Media is about as sure of a choice as you can make. You won't be disappointed!"
Jennifer Canzoneri, Senior Marketing Director, BenBella Books
“The biggest piece of advice a first-time author is given is to “hire your own publicist,” but what they don’t tell you is to “hire your own Ashley.” Looking back, I don’t know how I could have released my book without Ashley & her team. We started working together before the book was published. First local TV and small blogs and as I got more seasoned and the book got closer to coming, she booked me appearances on bigger and bigger outlets. Since the book as been released, the PR has heated up and continues to do so. With Ashley’s guidance and perseverance, I got booked on multiple episodes of The Doctor’s, Home & Family and NBC News. Not to mention … goop, Washington Post, Real Simple, HouseBeautiful … pop over to my website for the full list of Ashley’s magic. She truly is amazing.”
Tracy McCubbin, author, Making Space, Clutter Free
“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!“
Susan Peirce Thompson, Ph.D., New York Times Best Selling Author of Bright Line Eating: The Science of Living Happy, Thin, and Free
"Working with Nardi Media in 2021 far exceeded my expectations. I hired Nardi Media to publicize my first book and after speaking with Ashley the first time, I immediately felt seen, heard and supported. I knew I had to partner with her and her team. Nardi Media secured me 51 placements in 6 short months, roughly double the amount of placements I had anticipated. Placements included TV, radio, Op-Eds, and podcasts. It's been over 6 months since I partnered with Nardi and business continues to find me as a result of my work with Nardi Media. Highly recommend!!"
Emily Golden, Author, The New Golden Rule
“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!”
Bower Yousse and Thomas J. Cryan, Co-Authors, Freddie Steinmark: Faith, Family, Football

“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.

“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.”

Ron Friedman, Ph.D., author of The Best Place to Work: The Art and Science of Creating an Extraordinary Workplace
“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!”
Scott Behson, PhD, best-selling author of The Working Dad’s Survival Guide: How to Succeed at Work and at Home
“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.”
Mary Jordan, Washington Post National Correspondent and Founding Editor of Washington Post Live

“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 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.”
Jennifer Oko, Partner, Mad Squid Media
“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.”
Susan McGinnis, Correspondent, CBS Newspath

“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. She helped me every step of the way, helping to make my media tour a huge success. I highly recommend Nardi Media to any business considering a media push.”

“Ashley Bernardi is a class act. Professional, can-do, and smart, her connections and deep knowledge of the publicity business are equaled only by her excellence as a person. She’s a joy to work with! Every step of the way, Ashley and her team worked closely with me, making sure I was well-prepared and putting my best foot forward. Commitment, positivity, and pure hustle shone through 24/7. A new and unknown author, I was blown away by the media traction and visibility that Team Nardi garnered for my book in 6 short months—including 17 TV interviews and articles in print media such as Red Tricycle, Thrive Global, and Spirituality & Health. Hire Ashley…you’ll never look back. ”
