They say such nice things!

People who have worked with me have said things like "Wow! She really helped me." and "She's so awesome!".
You can see these things for yourself on LinkedIn

Here are some excerpts from LinkedIn

"She is not only eager to stay on the cutting edge of what is happening in the social media whirl-wind around her, but she is intentional in helping those of us less inclined to feel comfortable with the medium."

"She was a team player, taking on projects from our department like they were her own, making positive suggestions, keeping the department involved and always with the focus on suiting and fulfilling our needs"

"She offered creative ideas, communicated clearly about the possibilities, got her shots without making extra work for anyone else, produced compelling photos and video"

working from home is awesome.

I have been working from home for about a year and what I've learned is that I strongly prefer it to working in a traditional office.

I'm more focused and productive working from home. I've been using my reclaimed commute time to exercise and study. I'm healthier, happier, more productive.
