Client Testimonials

I had the pleasure of working with Toolie on a sprawling, multi-region effort at our company, and her leadership was pivotal to the successful outcomes of the project. At critical junctures where despair was about to set in, it was the greatest relief to find that Toolie had anticipated some scenario, and already had the tools to allow a clean resolution and to enable progress in the project. I couldn’t imagine our success without Toolie.

-- K. Madden, Exec. Director of Media and Ecommerce

Toolie is amazing; she has a mastery of finding the right balance of working with people to get results, and being empathetic about competing priorities across teams and locations. She was instrumental in helping to pull together the practice and training for multiple teams for our multi-region effort. Toolie is smart, friendly, and strategic. She’s a ray of light, and any company would be lucky to have her on their side.
