“Natalie is passionate about the quality of the work and products that she produces. She takes care in creating the most appealing and eye catching, yet informative fliers, posters, and other promotional publications, whether in print or online. I could would always count on her to listen to my ideas regarding the promotion and marketing of an event or program and bring them to fruition. It was a pleasure to work with her on those specific projects! I believe she will be an asset to any employer’s marketing, promotions and publication team.”
