What My Peers Say About Me

I cannot say enough great things about working with Glynnis! She is an excellent manager of teams and a leader in everything she does. She has an amazing ability to communicate thoroughly, thoughtfully, and diplomatically in a way that makes everyone feel heard and understood. She makes team members as well as clients feel at ease knowing they are working with such an expert in everything from gathering project requirements, documenting processes, spearheading UX planning efforts, or doing interactive design.
–Christine Maggi, Senior Product Designer @ Thistle
Glynnis is one of the most valuable, most effective people I’ve had the opportunity to work with. As a UI/UX specialist, Glynnis continually demonstrates an ability to help clients uncover the nuances of their requirements while being a strong advocate for the end user. Her design decisions always appear thoughtfully considered across the spectrum of aesthetics, usability, accessibility, and brand/message consistency.
–Nicholas Scheurich, Lead Developer @ NewAperio
When the team would find itself lost in the weeds on an issue, Glynnis always knew how to pull us back, reorient ourselves, and refocus on how a problem actually affects our users.

Whether she is designing or developing, Glynnis raises any team’s level of expertise. Her ability to communicate the key issues in difficult client situations is spectacular.

Glynnis is a rare force in a design environment. She has a solid eye for aesthetics, is engaged and informed of current trends, and thoroughly understands traditional design principles—all while keeping perspective on technical considerations. Constructive critique is a rarity in this industry and Glynnis excels at endorsing a healthy environment for collaborative discussion. This skill makes her someone I've frequently consulted with on my ideas, concepts, and designs.
