Kind Words

Recommendations of my work & leadership.

Kelly is one of the finest design professionals with whom I have had the pleasure to work. When working with her 1:1, she offers outstanding ideas while also being very open to suggestions and collaboration. As a member of a design team, I observed that Kelly exerted a quiet but powerful influence in steering the group toward intelligent choices that helped meet the objectives of the project.

Vice President, Corporate Communications

I had the distinct pleasure of working with Kelly while with Healthfleet (now Zillion). She's a very bright, collaborative design leader, able to take abstract concepts and move them quickly into final product...

Product Manager

...Not only is she a talented professional with a wide range of design ability, she is able to really listen to what are often nebulous business requirements, quickly conceptualize and “land it” with amazing creative. She is a star. Above all, she has a wonderful attitude and work ethic.

Vice President, Global Consumer Strategy

Kelly is a talented, intuitive and innovative designer with a strong commitment to her craft. I had the pleasure of working with Kelly for almost five years, and was always impressed by the quality and consistency of her designs...

Global Marketing Communications Leader

...She approaches every project with enthusiasm and professionalism, and somehow always over-delivers against any expectations. She is one of the only people I know who is comfortable with ambiguity and freedom of design, but also at addressing any specific needs or guardrails. I would recommend working with or hiring Kelly for any project, large or small, with absolutely zero hesitation.

- Past Coworker, Via Linkedin

Director, Brand Marketing & Strategy

Kelly was one of the most positive, professional, and creative individuals that I had the privilege of working with at Galileo. Kelly's thought-leadership is to be commended, and I highly recommend her to any of her future professional or personal pursuits.

- Past Coworker, Via Linkedin

Senior Account Executive

Kelly is a talented Art Director, who has a fantastic eye for design. She can work from concept to completion on projects ranging from packaging to Shopper Marketing and is a great person to have in a brainstorm session.

- Past Manager, Via Linkedin

Director of New Business Development

Kelly is one of the rare designers who not only produces great visualization of concepts but also can grasp and help create the strategy behind it. She consistently delivered on every project and always exceeded internal and client expectations.
