"I contracted Kristina to assist with editing of my first book, Leader by Mistake. This was a fast-paced, high energy, quick turn around project that she graciously signed up for. Kristina has a very unique engagement style that is stern, pleasant and very much action oriented. Her ability to look at text and storytelling from many different angles and perspectives is a dynamic skill set. Since that initial project, I have also engaged her for other projects as well. I am very much looking forward to working with her again in the near future!"

“Kristina is downright extraordinary. She can simultaneously grasp the big picture, break a big job down into concrete steps, and never lose sight of the smallest detail. When she was with the Michigan League of Conservation Voters, she took our planning and execution of events and publications to a whole new level. Even in a fast-paced, ever changing environment, she focuses on the goal and ensures every step is done well and on time. This, combined with her excellent communication skills and ability to collaborate, made her a critically important part of the team.”

“Over the past three years, I’ve worked with Kristina, first as a client contact and subsequently, as a contractor to my firm. She is bright, professional, highly responsive and a stickler for schedules and details. As a contractor to my marketing and event planning firm, she has researched thousands of university and media contacts for an international competition for college students. She is my first choice for project work when I need to add resources.”

"I worked with Kristina at One Green Planet. I found that she is a diligent team player, who worked calmly in a high-pressure, deadline-driven work environment. She was always willing to do more by offering to help her team members with editing and article ideas. Her highly motivated attitude helped her land a managerial position at OGP, where she was able to manage the day-to-day operations of the online publication. I highly recommend Kristina."

"I first began to write for the online publication One Green Planet in late 2013. Kristina was my editor at the time, and her gentle encouragement and enthusiasm for helping me with my articles enabled me to start developing my own voice as a writer. I found her to be friendly, approachable, and easy to work with, and for this reason, I think she would be a great leader. She has a great aptitude for identifying the skills and abilities of those around her, then helping people to nurture those skills further."

She was super easy to work with thanks to her fantastic attitude, passion for the subject, and excellent leadership abilities. And even with her heavy workload and hard deadlines to meet, Kristina was always available to help brainstorm article ideas with her team members. Additionally, she offered good, clear feedback on submitted articles. Her phenomenal communication skills and upbeat personality made work a breeze and she always made me feel like a valued member of the team. I would recommend Kristina to any organization."
