I'm an integrated marketing and digital strategist, data-driven, tech lover, idea generator, gadget addict, wordsmith-y geek. I like people. It shows.
Geek, tech lover, wordsmith, intellectual adventurer, believer in people, dogs and smiles. 

Founder and CEO of V3 Integrated Marketinga full service integrated marketing agency headquartered in Kansas City, MO.located in Kansas City, Missouri, I'm known for my expertise with regard to brand strategy, integrated marketing, all things related to the web and the digital space, including lead generation, mobile marketing, content strategy and content marketing, website design and development, social media community building and management, business intelligence and social data gathering, analysis and integration into strategy, SEO + SEM, corporate communications, corporate social media training and a host of other things. 

I'm also a well-known speaker and present often at conferences all over world, on topics ranging from integrated marketing to digital strategy, to social media strategies to using your blog to drive leads and sales and the importance of the mobile space. 

When it comes to using the web as part of your integrated marketing strategy and helping you sell more stuff to more people--whether you're in the B2B or B2C space -- our team at V3 is pretty awesome. Oh, and did I mention we like results? And we're committed to showing our clients measurable results instead of asking them to take our word for it. We find they like that. 

I'm also kind of partial to quick wit, sarcasm, quick repartee and smart people. I like kids, good deeds, hard work, dogs, fun and frivolity. I've been known to do almost anything for food. Really good food. And, of course, beer. Beer is always good. So is wine. Red. Of course.

I am staying in Orange Beach this week and was looking for a limo service to take part of my family to the airport in Pensacola for a trip home. I found Luxury Limo because of The Google and because of good customer reviews, I called them. They were prompt to respond, courteous and fabulous at taking care of my precious cargo. They didn't blink an eye when I told them I needed a 4am pickup to make a 6am flight and the driver was here early, was super in every way and my kids got where they needed to be. I definitely recommend using Luxury Limo for all your transportation needs - they are awesome.

I can't say I've ever had a worse experience than at the hands of the ownership of Plaza Cleaners and take the time to write this review as a warning to others about trusting valuable clothing or household items to this company. I have been a Plaza Cleaners customer for over 10 years, mostly because of a wonderful woman, Shelley Winfield, who has been working there for and taking care of me and my family. I've been sending my sheets to Plaza Cleaners to be laundered for about the last four years. It is not inexpensive, but a luxury that we enjoy. I took a pair of brand new, still in the package, monogrammed new sheets that I purchased from Pottery Barn for $300 in February of 2013 to be laundered before I put them on our bed. In fact, Shelley took them out of the package for me. When I picked them up a week or so later, I saw to my horror that they were pink! As if that wasn't bad enough, the edges of the fitted sheet had been stained to a rusty color. I returned them to Shelley at Plaza Cleaners and she was equally horrified as, as I mentioned, she had taken them out of the package herself and knew what they had cost. She told me to not worry yet, that she would have them redone and was hopeful they could be fixed. When I returned to pick up the sheets yet another week or ten days later, they weren't as pink as they had been, but they were still tinged with pink. And the edges of the fitted sheet was even more stained with rust and, as an added bonus, the pillow cases had burn marks on them from the mangle used to press them. My $300 sheets were, essentially, ruined. Shelley had me fill out a damage form and assured me they would take care of it, but that I would have to take the sheets to Mr. Chung, the owner, at their other location, which is this one, on Wornall Road. I did one week ago and was unlucky enough to deal with Mrs. Chung. Her immediate reaction was to deny responsibility and advise me that sheets were laundered at the owner's risk (a policy apparently never shared with customers) and that it was too bad, but that they weren't responsible. I was later told that that policy was implemented AFTER they ruined my $300 sheets but one that was still not being communicated to customers. Another reason for writing this review. I've been patronizing this cleaner for many years and have paid them many thousands of dollars for their services. To have them not stand behind their services and to refuse to take responsibility when they damaged my property is astonishing. I will move heaven and earth to warn customers about doing business with this dry cleaner, as they are clearly not reputable in any way. Please view this review as your warning. If you value your clothing and household linens, do not patronize Plaza Cleaners. Any damage they inflict to your valuable items will not be acknowledged, nor will you ever receive any recompense for that damage. This not a reputable business, not by a long stretch.

We live in the Brookside area of Kansas City, and I've been looking for the perfect dentist for some time now. When I discovered (based on the recommendation of a friend) that Dr. Burch practiced in the neighborhood, I was excited to make an appointment and try him out. I've since sent my entire family over in the course of the past several weeks. Not only did they manage to win over my curmudgeonly husband, but they've got my kids raving, too. Today's appointment was for my 4 year old twins, who were visiting the dentist for only the second time ever. The staff is warm and loving and they ensured that my kids had so much fun while they were there, they didn't even realize what was happening. Our first dental visit was to a pediatric dentist and compared to the experience at Dr. Burch's office, we're happy we made the change. We love having a "family dentist" and a staff that knows us all, treats us as if we are part of their family and makes the "chore" of going to the dentist an enjoyable one for all. So glad we discovered Dr. Rick and his staff and look forward to many years of great interaction.
