"Julie Ford isn't just the best PR person I've worked with at Sunetric, she's the best PR person I've worked with in my career. Sunetric has been well positioned in the media and in the community. She also identified some key people that Sunetric should know and arranged meetings with them. We've been able to nurture those relationships and begun to play a larger role in our community."

"Julie Schweitzer Ford is one of the nicest and most efficient people that I have ever met. She has a tremendous background in public relations, marketing, operations and simply getting the job done. I met Julie through the National Kidney Foundation of Hawaii where she was the Chief Operating Officer. Her work ethic, her honesty, love for life and people and willingness to learn and help others were very evident as I had the opportunity to work with her. She has been very instrumental and effective in helping me, I recommend Julie without any reservations. She is a doer."

"Julie is successful in the very competitive PR business quite simply because she is very good at what she does, especially in meeting her clients' needs. I first met Julie in 1992 back when I was the President, Commercial & Industrial Division, Castle & Cooke. Over the years, I have seen her hone her PR skills, tackling a variety of challenging tasks to the point now where she can handle the most difficult and complicated projects. It has been a pleasure not only working with her but also watching her become one of the top professionals in her field."
