Many agencies promise copywriting and content creation, but very few have trained writers and editors on staff. Verano Marketing & Communications is built on the backbone of exceptional writers. Our business started by bringing journalism to the small business community. Our team combines the talent of trained writers with the nimbleness and know-how of successful entrepreneurs.
Our core team is small, and that's intentional. When you work with us, you gain access to our network of talented businesses and individuals with different skills and advantages. Our flexibility enables us to pair the right people with the right jobs to ensure that personalities, budgets, and creative outlooks are aligned from the beginning.

If your project is small, our core team can cover it. But as your needs grow, so do we. And for that reason, many of our clients consider us their in-house marketing and communications team. We are forthright with all clients about what services are done internally and those that require the skills of other people or businesses. We coordinate all services and people needed to get a job done right, but without the HR requirements or costs that come with internal marketing and communications departments.
In late 2017, Verano Marketing + Communications received the designation of being a Women Owned Business by the Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC). The WBENC Certification validates that the business is 51 percent owned, controlled, operated, and managed by a woman or women. To achieve WBENC Certification, women owned businesses complete a formal documentation and site visit process. WBENC Certification gives women owned businesses the ability to compete for real-time business opportunities provided by WBENC Corporate Members and government agencies.
Claire Krawsczyn is the managing director of Verano—a role she’s grown into since starting the company in 2013. Launching, expanding, and managing a business has been one of the happiest challenges of her life, and she’s excited to continue the adventure with her amazing team and inspiring clients. From her days as a journalism student at Ohio University, Claire has found joy in words: reading, writing, analyzing, editing...when it comes to words, she’s all-in. Her love for language carried her across the ocean to Spain, where she studied as a student and then lived and worked for a year teaching English after graduating from OU. Claire spent several years in Washington, D.C., earning a master’s degree from Georgetown University and gaining professional experience at brands like The Discovery Channel, Nextel, and the American Health Care Association. Claire loves being back in her hometown of Cincinnati, where she and her husband, Adam, are busy chasing their daughter, A.J., and pup, Avon Barksdale.
