“Along with a team of 5 professional staff, I had the chance to work directly with Nan as she completed a career guide for the college’s Career and Professional Development Center. Nan was timely, efficient and exceptional in her delivery of information. The project was not easy as we needed to condense information to fit the needs of our reader, as well as our budget. Nan’s expertise was impressive as she worked to finalize a piece that was informative, creative and appealing to the young adult audience. Nan was flexible with my approach to feedback and connected on the team’s level in every way. I truly enjoyed collaborating with her each day until the project was complete. I would look forward to the opportunity to work with Nan on future projects.”

I value this new working relationship, and I look forward to working with Nan in the future.
