Gabriella applied meticulous writing and design skills to create several end products for the launch of a new HRIS, Payroll and Time/Attendance system. The materials she created were user-friendly and extremely functional. She also conducted webinars across various user group audiences to enable employees to adopt the new systems and processes. Gabriella was easy to work with, professional, and very organized. I welcome future opportunities to work with Gabriella as we expand the breadth and functionality of our HR systems.

I would highly recommend Gabriella for any research or writing/instructional design project. Gabriella produced best practices educational content for our national on-line leadership development platform and drafted the first cut of our web site. She is flexible and easy to work with. She is also adept at picking up a project at any point and can skillfully shift between different genres of writing which helped us to meet our goals under some very tight timelines. I would gladly work with and engage Gabriella again.
