“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Kristen on two major website redesigns over the past five years. As the website project manager at Urban Solutions and later the UCSF Division of Adolescent Medicine, Kristen’s work as a designer always made my job much easier. She was consistently returning high quality work ahead of schedule and helping our team come up with the most efficient and best-looking content organization system. Both organizations are incredibly happy with their new sites. I’m glad I had the opportunity to work with her twice at two different jobs and I would love the opportunity to work with her again.”
