Deborah is easy to work with and capable. She produces exceptional graphic designs and has excellent web development skills.
Deborah is highly responsive, thorough, and expansive in providing up-to-date, highly informed web support services. I've hired her several times to trouble shoot as well as update my web presence. Both times, she's delivered exactly what I needed, sometimes under limited time constraints.
She understands complexity and the needs of professionals. She is also generous with her expertise while focusing clearly on exactly what needs to be done. I recommend her highly!
Deborah reported directly to me as a Web Developer at Washtenaw Community College. One of the first things that comes to mind about her work is that Deborah fights for the users. She was the go-to resource for all accessibility questions and was a passionate advocate for creating clear and consistent user experiences. As part of a highly collaborative team, she engaged in group problem solving with her peers. Her detail orientated nature showed through in the semantically correct and standards compliant HTML/CSS she wrote. A lifelong learner, she often took time at the end of projects to document lessons learned, best practices, and create checklists for future use. Deborah is extremely self-motivated in her professional development and generous in sharing her knowledge with others.
I can unequivocally recommend Deborah as a diversely talented web professional and would hire her again, given the chance. She will ask productive questions and work passionately on behalf of her clients and especially their users.
I worked closely with Deborah for email marketing to parents of new students. She shared feedback to improve the newsletter, was timely with the delivery, and followed-up with stats information. We also collaborated to update the orientation web content. Throughout the process, Deborah was attentive to what I wanted to communicate to students and their parents. She took the time to meet in-person, bounced ideas with me, and worked hard to meet the goals I wanted to accomplish with the webpages. Deborah is a wonderful colleague and I would enjoy working with her in the future.
I have been working on a project with Deborah for the last 3 months. We are currently wrapping it up and I am reflecting on how smooth it went because of Deborah. She made it a priority to understand our project. This made our lives so much easier as we were working with her about once a week to do updates. I am the first to admit I like my web team to just do what I tell them, but it is even better when someone like Deborah takes a vested interest in understanding the project to better meet its needs. As a result she has come up with a collection of quality recommendations that made the outcomes better. She obviously has a number of other talents which include sound communications, quality assurance, clean UI, etc...
Deborah is a top notch web designer and project manager who takes great care in all she does.
Deborah is extremely detail oriented, thorough and punctual. Her knowledge of the web is vast and from what I understand her coding is very efficient. She is a pleasure to work with and if you are interested, she will suck you into the beauty of the web. I strongly recommend her services.
I met Deborah at a networking event and was impressed with her enthusiasm for supporting women to take on leadership roles in the Metro Detroit technology and social media communities. Deborah invited me to speak for a group she co-leads, The Metro Detroit WordPress Meetup. I was able to experience first-hand her strong organization and facilitation skills. She runs great events and is a relentless connector. I'm so glad our paths have crossed!
Deborah is the consummate professional that I am happy to recommend. I have worked alongside Deborah both at Future Midwest in Detroit and later at Metro Co-Working Space. She has been instrumental in connecting me with future clients and is honest and helpful in her feedback about my work. I value her as a mentor and colleague and can highly recommend her professionally and personally, as a good person to know.
I had the pleasure of supervising Deborah at WCC. Her attention to detail and work ethic are without peer. I observed her to be a tireless champion of accessibility who unselfishly shared her expertise. I can unequivocally recommend Deborah as a talented professional who will ask challenging questions and work passionately on behalf of her clients and especially their users.
Deborah is a key member of the Web Services department at Washtenaw Community College for a number of reasons, but I'll just highlight two. For starters, she's an expert on accessibility and user experience issues, and she's happy to share her knowledge with other team members. And second, she's the main customer service contact for our department and provides wonderful service that charms even the most difficult of clients.
The thing that impresses me most about Deborah, though, is the fact that she's constantly learning about her craft. She actively learns each and every day.
