Andrew Reese
Senior Product Marketing Manager at IHS
I had the pleasure of working with Vie on several short-timeframe, high-revenue projects for our business unit. Vie's work was exceptional for its quality, but also for the positive attitude that she brought to our projects.

I always appreciated that Vie took the time to listen to our requirements, and that she was understanding of our time constraints. Regardless of the project, Vie was always quick to grasp our goals, and she was conscientious about providing us with guidance on how best to accomplish our goals, including by suggesting alternatives that we otherwise would not have considered.

Vie was highly knowledgeable about the capabilities of our website tools, and was able to apply that knowledge to our projects in a way that ensured optimum results. She was creative, and yet contributed to keeping our projects within scope and on schedule.

I gladly recommend Vie and am confident that she will be a terrific fit for any organization that can leverage her truly impressive talents.less

Vie is a fantastic collaborator, bringing many skills to the table. She focuses all her talents to produce well considered solutions that specifically meet the goals and challenges faced on every project.

I have enjoyed working with Vie to develop multiple web-based marketing projects and design/process documentation for our corporate website. I have always found her to have the technical ability, design sensibility and project management/communication skills to deliver the goods — even when faced with changing objectives and multiple stakeholders with differing views.less
