Chernise is great to work with - she has done multiple jobs for me and helped me build my business with personal projects as well. I really like that she has great experience and ability in modeling, but also comes with a great attitude and really loves what she does which always makes my job easier.

Callie Lipkin Owner, Callie Lipkin Photography

I have engaged the services of Chernise for two very high level events. She was professional, personable, and dependable. I would recommend her for any trade show, model assignment, or interaction with your clients.
I have several events in the near future and plan to use her again.

James Feldman, CITE, CPIM, CPT, MIP

Chernise has always been a pleasure to work with over the years. She's professional, stays on-message, and is a joy to work with.

Michael Kelley, Director of Operations, +KAM

I could not be happier with Chernise and the great work she did representing and promoting Kalio at the IRCE.

She is highly personable, self-motivated, extremely sharp, and of course, very beautiful. She was able to quickly understand our company's motto and marketing points and relay them to potential leads.

I would definitely love to work with her again and highly recommend her for any future work.

Chernise is an absolute pro. She came prepared and was an absolute pleasure to work with on set. Thanks!
