I cannot recommend K. highly enough. Working with K. made my job easy and she far surpassed my expectations. Not only was she extremely well organized and thoughtful about the project we worked on with NGX, she communicated in a way that made the project run as smooth as silk. Right from the beginning, the scope of the project was clear, and every step of the way, we were in sync with Katie's team. K. made sure we were always were aware of the schedule, the status of the work being done, and most importantly, that we knew what the priorities were, when our input was needed, and what kind of input/feedback was required. I was incredibly impressed by her work and her ability to manage people and the project in a positive and effective manner.

I have worked with K. on a number of projects over the past 4 years and always look forward collaborating with her. I appreciate her ability to manage the needs of each team member while keeping the project moving. As a designer it is great to work with someone who understands the creative process and is able to predict potential issues before the work even gets started. She a professional, welcoming and straight up fun person to work with as well. It takes a lot of stress off a project knowing someone like K. is on your team.
