She asked great questions to ensure she had a strong handle on the material we needed her to produce
and delivered quality content on a tight deadline.
We will definitely be calling Kirsten again and look forward to the chance to work with her on larger projects."

Kirsten was thoughtful, organized and thorough, paying close attention to details while also being sure to take the time to strategically look at the bigger picture. Her patience, flexibility and listening skills have been particularly valuable."
