Dr. Joni Labbe is the founder of "Thyroidsisters", San Diego, CA.

"Louie has it all! He's creative, on time, professional, easy to work with, communicates directives, thoughts, and ideas in an easy to understand manner. Turn around is quick, yet does not sacrifice quality. Extra bonus, he also fine-tuned my script to sound more positive. Instead of being staged and stiff, Louie gave me huge tips on "being" in front of the camera, reading the teleprompter, voice inflections / pauses to be more vibrant and conversational." - Dr. Joni Labbe.
