"We had a very positive experience — found her very responsive, easy to work with; she asked good questions, had a strong command in the subject area, and delivered exactly what we wanted to accomplish — wireframes for website we’re revamping and incorporating into the platform at the moment.”

 — Diana, AngelHack

“Communication was great — we were able to have a meeting every week; she had her work done on time + asked any questions she needed. She didn’t need hand-holding and seemed so eager."
