Kate’s editing and project management skills were critical to the success of a video project we’ve undertaken at Teachers College, Columbia University. The bilingual tutorials she created will have major impact in assisting practitioners and families abroad. She has a strong work ethic, was persistent in finding solutions to make the storylines come together, and demonstrates a keen synthesis of footage.

As a nonprofit director with many items on my plate, Kate made collaboration together seamless and effective. Kate was able to envision and create an effective communication tool that created a buzz with our funders and volunteers. Thanks Kate for doing such a great job, we would love to work with you again!!!

Kate was an amazing addition to a campaign we ran at the Foundation. She was very thoughtful, detailed and great to work with. In the span of a month our small but mighty team built an amazing campaign and we couldn’t have done it without Kate’s expertise. She comes highly recommended and is someone we look forward to partnering with on future projects.

Kate made things possible that I could not achieve by myself. Her friendly “we can reach your goal” attitude, coupled with her depth of knowledge brings visions to reality. I have the means today to reach non-profit leaders that I did not have before meeting Kate.
