“Catherine worked for us as a web designer for five years, during which time our web site won several awards. She was instrumental in updating and modernizing our web site as well as helping with expanding our web service offerings. Catherine was creative, responsive and a pleasure to work with. We were sorry to see her leave when she relocated away from the area. I highly recommend her services.”

“Catherine worked on several projects with me on business intelligence solutions. She juggled multiple projects at the same time and managed to deliver detailed wireframes on time. Catherine always works with a smile on her face and is ready to learn quickly any new tool or skills that is required for the project success. An example of this is when there was a need for us to create a prototype, she was able to learn Sketchflow in 2 days and quickly create an interactive prototype for us to test the concept. She is a great pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend her for interaction design projects.”

“Catherine is a wonderful teammate. While working with her at T-Mobile I found her designs to be meticulous and thoughtful, even when project requirements seemed imponderably complicated. She is a strong collaborator, and I always enjoyed talking through workflows and user scenarios with her.

Catherine is a great listener, which helps her put herself in the user’s shoes and understand design problems from a humanistic perspective. Her strong sense of empathy also helps her work really well in a collaborative team. Any team would be very lucky to count Catherine among its members.”

“I hired Catherine to help remodel a large intranet site and a more modest internet site. What initially impressed me was a high attention to detail in the sites she had worked on and a simple ease in navigation and user-friendly look and feel. Catherine was able to introduce those same design concepts to sites that were very old, tired and user-unfriendly. We now have sites that are favorably regarded and used as examples of good design. In addition to quality work, Catherine is very easy to work with – she is personable, friendly and “kind” when providing guidance and suggestions for improvement. Hiring Catherine was a great decision and I would not hesitate to hire her again or recommend her.”

“Catherine stepped in as UI Designer at a very critical time, brought innovative ideas in user experience design, and was instrumental in advancing our vision. She is a fantastic attention-minded designer with a great attitude. Not only is she an excellent designer but she communicates superbly, and makes sense out of chaos. Catherine consistently puts in the extra effort to get things done.”

“Catherine and I worked together on several web and UI design projects while at Hill Physicians. Catherine is extremely skilled at her craft, she has a great eye for design, but never lets design get in the way of usability. She brings a positive energy to every project and is always willing to share her creative spirit without running over the needs of the client. She is a pleasure to work with.”
