Michelle Jones is one of the most efficient, competent and enthusiastic people I have had the great pleasure to work with. In the often insane and consistently chaotic world of entertainment, and in particular coordinating star talent, contest winners and media on an international level, she shines. We have had the pleasure of working together on several events, promos and episodes and I am always greatly relieved when I know she is on the job and every experience has exceeded expectations. I look forward to working together again in the future as she will always be my first choice.” Jeff Swampy Marsh, Creator/Exec. Producer, Disney’s Phineas & Ferb.
