“Jamee is a joy to work with. Technically savvy, cooperative, and eager to please, she will help your project get off the ground if it has trouble flying, and if it is already in the air, will help you steer it to a stellar landing. I can’t recommend her enough.” ~ Sharon Smith, NYC

“Jamee is an incredibly grounded, respectful, and creative innovator. Both nurturing and open-minded, she was able to consider the value of each direction and approach that we discussed and see the short and long term value of each of them. She’s quietly passionate about her company’s goals and easily installed that in me – as well as other freelance members of her team. Working for/with Jamee is an incredibly rewarding experience both creatively and professionally.” ~ Phil Frabetti
