THEIR WORDS, NOT OURS
"It is rare to come across a communications professional that is as accomplished as Kristen. I was particularly impressed with her willingness to develop a deep understanding of complex company issues in order to provide the optimal communications plan."

"I've had the privilege to work with Kristen at Healthpoint Hospital in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. During our time together, Kristen was an excellent mentor to junior staff, such as myself. She managed a multicultural team; she always made an effort to understand the values of each culture and could see reality from multiple perspectives. I remember her most for her dedication to help others through coaching. She is very organized, reliable, and has an exceptional work ethic."

"Kristen did an excellent job advising students on projects as both an alumnus of the program and as a professional communicator. The students have nothing but positive things to say about her counsel on their course work. Not only is Kristen knowledgeable about communications, but she an all-around great person to work with!"

"On Day One of our project, Kristen walked through the door with confidence and grace, and hit the ground running. It was clear, she was missing from our project. She brought up ideas that were creative and exactly what we needed. The impact she had on our team was immeasurable. She masterfully handled a lot of the communication and change support at the CFO level to every field office in the country. Her guidance and leadership was essential to our success."
Project Management Professional
"I have nothing but the highest praise for Kristen, who has provided outstanding counsel and advice in support of one of our most important public-private campaigns in the UAE.
"In 2016, I sought out Kristen to work on our October campaign, Discover America (DA), which is of major commercial importance to the U.S. Mission in the UAE. Although Kristen’s initial scope was to provide counsel on messaging and strategy, she quickly assumed a larger role that included oversight and implementation of DA web and app development, social media messaging, and stakeholder engagement.
"Though she was based in the US, I could count on Kristen to be online with my team at 4am (often earlier) to supervise other elements of the campaign. Through and through, she brilliantly delivered on target, on time, and on benefit. I hired her again for DA 2017 as both the scope and scale has grown, building upon the foundational work that Kristen helped lay.
"In sum, whenever Kristen assumes management of a project, she maintains faultless control and takes it down the road to success. I am always impressed by her professionalism, creativity, and responsiveness, and very much look forward to collaborating with her on future diplomatic engagements."
Former Senior Commercial Counselor, Gulf Cooperative Council
"I had the privilege of working for Kristen at Healthpoint in Abu Dhabi, UAE and the first thing that struck me — and remained true throughout our relationship at work — was how humane she was in her leadership. Not only did she continuously make herself available for myself and the marketing team that worked under her, but she went a step further by making us all feel like a family that can achieve great things together.
"Having worked in a variety of industries for nearly a decade, I can safely say that these attributes are very rare and for that reason, among many more, Kristen would doubtlessly be a most valuable member and leader to any organization."
Digital Media Practitioner
"I have known Kristen for three years and have worked on several communications projects with her. I find her work to be creative, constructive and valuable. She has a great ability to identify potential changes that would help organizations run more efficiently and effectively. I also greatly appreciate her sense of humor."
