"Eileen is one of the sharpest and funniest people I have ever worked with. She is extremely collaborative and would be an asset to any job. She approaches everything with integrity and an incredible work ethic, and makes it better simply by being a part of it."

-Kate Lambert, 'Teachers'

"The sharpest and quickest person I've ever met. Plus, she's a great hang...which is EVERYTHING."

-Mike Glazer,  'Billy on the Street'

"Eileen is so funny and ascerbic, but you can feel the satire coming from a great big heart."

-Rob Belushi, 'Ballers' and 'The Off Season'

"I was lost as sea and Eileen Montelione found me...a sandwich."
