Nellie combines creativity, curiosity, professionalism, encouragement and decades of media experiences to bring out the best in her radio program guests. She is a great listener and, therefore, a great interviewer. Knowing her through her published books as well means I am fortunate to be able to refer her to many colleagues in various fields.
