Diana and I have known each other since she was a student intern at a small digital advertising agency I worked for many moons ago. Even then, Diana's enthusiasm for all things digital was both apparent, and refreshing. Over the years our paths have crossed several times, and each time has been pleasurable because of her sincerity and easy nature. Recently I hired Diana to run a website development project I was charged with. Her professionalism, management, creative input and technical competency were quickly apparent, allowing the project to develop smoothly, and without issue. Diana performed beyond my expectations, and ultimately produced an exceptional website. After 25 years in the digital marketing and SaaS business, Diana is one of the very best talents I have worked with.
