I am proud to lead the incredibly talented team at Bosha Design+Communications, a full-service communications company that delivers inspired, effective communications to support strategy and facilitate change management.
At BD+C, I put my 30-plus years of experience in design strategy, creative implementation, and project management to work on behalf of clients that include world-leading pharmaceutical companies, international manufacturing companies, regional colleges, Philadelphia-area non-profits and many others.
Although BD+C's clients are very different in terms of size, the products and services they provide, and the challenges they face, I’ve found that the people in those organizations have much in common. That includes constantly being asked to deliver more value, often with fewer resources.
And I’ve seen that even if the word “communications” doesn’t appear in their job title, everyone is required to be an expert communicator. They must deliver messages that are clear, concise and actionable. They must master existing and emerging communication tools. And they must be able to show how everything they do contributes to their organization’s success.
BD+C helps our clients do all those things.
We do it by focusing on creating, nurturing and sustaining long-term relationships. Our goal is always to earn a place at the table beside you -- to become your strategic partner. That is why there is no “one-size-fits-all” approach at BD+C; we always tailor a custom approach to each client that incorporates a deep understanding of your goals, challenges, and values.
BD+C is proud to be a WBENC Certified Women-Owned Business.
Danielle Leheny is a Senior Communications Professional with 15 years of experience in all areas of Corporate Communications. She has a proven ability to generate award-winning branding campaigns, as well as change management initiatives that deliver results.
Danielle has partnered with BD+C for the past 10 years on a range of Communications projects, and is now a full member of the BD+C team. Previously, she has worked for Rohm and Haas Company, Dow Chemical Company, Philadelphia Magazine, and the Academy of Natural Sciences. She has a bachelor’s degree in English from the University of Pennsylvania, and an MBA from Temple University.
Born with creative ants in the pants, Danielle is a passionate writer and storyteller. She enjoys photography and digital design in her spare time—although “spare time” is tough to find these days, while she keeps tabs on her young sons, Liam and Declan—who provide plenty of inspiration and laughter for this working mom.
Sallie joined BD+C as an intern in February 2006, and has worked closely with clients on a range of Communications activities, from project management to tactical delivery. She found her niche in the digital world, and currently handles all eMarketing activities, including website development, SharePoint integration, content management, and promotional eBlasts.
Sallie has a bachelor’s degree in English and Studio Art from Bucknell University—as well as various certifications from the Aquent Graphics Institute, New York University SCPS, the Moore College of Art and Design, and the Continuing Studies University of the Arts.
Helping keep Sallie sane outside of BD+C are her husband Nathaniel (pretty cute), her dog Wrigley (even cuter), and her daughter Celia (the reigning champion of cuteness).
Carlos has 5 years in cutting-edge graphic design with a broad range of clients. He previously worked for Luceco LED, where he was responsible for the design of all marketing and packaging materials. He has also worked for Corporate Montage, where he created exhibition booth designs for oil and gas clients.
Carlos has been recognized for his inspired work and designs, and he was named a Gold winner for new talent in 2013 by Graphis — and received a Certificate of Excellence at the 2012 Creative Summit in San Marcos, TX. He has a BFA in Graphic Design from the Art Institute of Houston.
Alex, a graphic designer, is a Miami native who ventured north to study nursing at Drexel University only to discover a very different passion. She soon switched gears and graduated with a BA in Graphic Design, with a minor in Art History and Fine Art.
Although BD+C is Alex’s first professional post-college position, she already has significant design experience under her belt. During college, Alex returned to Miami for an internship at the design firm Doink, Inc., where Royal Caribbean snapped up five of her original designs for display on their newest cruise ship. While studying in London, Alex collaborated on the creation of a stylebook for the London College of Fashion Photoshoot.
Alex enjoys the challenge of merging her personal style with client preferences and brand guidance. She speaks eloquently of the challenges of balancing intrinsic and extrinsic motivation and of how rewarding it is to satisfy clients with great design.
In her spare time, Alex composes poetry with her younger sister, who sometimes performs their compositions at poetry “slams.”
Katlyn’s job interview with Barb Bosha took place aboard an American Airlines flight from Tampa to Philadelphia.
Neither Katlyn nor Barb knew it was an interview – they were just strangers passing time on a plane. But Katlyn had just left a position, and Barb needed an office manager. It was a match made in – if not heaven – about 30,000 feet closer to it.
Katlyn never envisioned working at a branding and marketing company. When the Villanova native graduated from Widener University with a degree in hospitality management, she looked forward to a career in corporate event planning. But after graduation, she gravitated toward the health field, including serving for four years as CPR Program Coordinator for Main Line Health.
Her current responsibilities include maintaining Barb’s calendar, assisting BD+C’s designers and writers with proofreading, project managing, other tasks, and speaking with clients on the phone – an aspect of the job she relishes. “I love talking on the phone,” she says. “I guess that means I’m not a true millennial.”
When she’s not ensuring BD+C’s headquarters’ operations run smoothly, Katlyn spends time with her family and friends. She’s also working on discovering new passions and opportunities to grow.

At BD+C, Anne Marie vigorously applies her word weaving skills to both corporate and non-profit clients—and she prides herself on being able to capture the client’s personality, while also clearly expressing their key messages.
When she’s not typing away at a keyboard, Anne Marie spends her time outdoors gardening—or helping her husband keep up with their two energetic young daughters.
