"As a creative director and copy writer I have both hired and worked side by side with many graphic designers over the years. Connie is not only extremely talented and one of the best illustrators in the business, she is also easy to communicate with, responsive and open to ideas. I have gotten to know Connie both professionally and personally over the years and she is one of the most helpful, easy-going and nicest people on the planet."

"Connie is a brilliant and inventive art director with whom I have worked closely on a variety of publications for nearly 10 years.
She has tackled extremely rough artistic problems with solutions that have made the publication more attractive to readers—and advertisers. Her art direction amps up writers' text with informative graphics and vibrant layouts.
Equally essential in her tool kit, her technical know-how has shepherded these publications into the digital era by adding interactive features and video options that have enhanced the publications' websites.
Her ability to meet all deadlines and to transform reams of copy onto an elegant and readable page has made her into a crucial partner on these publications.
Her involvement in the projects taps many other skill sets from her expertise communicating with printers to overseeing photographers' contributions—and all roles in between.
All this with a keen sense of humor, dedication and perfectionism, Connie sets a very high bar in the realm of art direction—and then actually surpasses it herself—from my vantage point having had the opportunity to work with numerous art directors for more than 20 years."
