“As a writing consultant Christianna has added an immeasurable resource to our in-house corporate communications team.
What impresses us the most is her ability to very quickly immerse herself into complex technical language and deliver copy that is credible, engaging, interesting and informative. She takes great pride in her work and is responsive, accessible and above all,
not afraid to tackle the hard assignments.”
