I had the pleasure to work with Leslie at a high intensity, detail oriented, internationally renowned design firm. Leslie’s role was one with many hats:
- designer & project leader
- running design and production quality and staff
- client and owner point of contact (often they were not the same)
- consultant coordinator (from lighting and kitchen design to all engineering)
Leslie provided a unique perspective to her design approach with a keen sensibility to the client’s expectations. She balanced this with an eye to project budgets and schedule limitations. She is a compassionate listener and is always generous with her time and willing to help. She is a hard worker and a confident self-starter, always researching new ideas and figuring out new ways of doing things that will make a project or process flourish.
…she brought a considerable amount of professionalism to the project table. Leslie very easily grasped what our design challenges were and helped coordinate the Interior Design in such a way that we came up with seamless solutions for the client. Working with Leslie was wonderful; she is very creative and has a very positive and grounded view of what it takes to complete a project.
Leslie did a great job handling the PGA Stadium Clubhouse project. Her management style brought creative solutions to construction implementation issues, while keeping the budget in view. Interfacing with the general contractor and other consultants was always handled efficiently, with warmth and a team attitude. I hope to have the opportunity to work with Leslie again in the near future!
I worked with Leslie on a small project with a very tight schedule as the sale of my house depended on it. She was able to quickly understand what was required and quickly turned around the required documents for permitting. Her familiarity with the local building codes and what the city was looking for were critical in helping get the required building permits.
Leslie was a pleasure to work with at a time when everyone around her was under a lot of pressure. She was friendly, efficient and very knowledgeable. I would not think twice about having her help me next time.
We hired Leslie to draft exhibit floorplans of our museum. She quickly grasped what our needs were and executed the project efficiently and professionally. Her positive attitude was refreshing and I hope we have an opportunity to work with her again in the future.
Leslie worked with me on two complex designs for restaurant proposals in the Presidio. She did an incredible job of weaving the aesthetic, functional and cost considerations into the designs and working to present these through the complex review process and to the varied decision makers at the Presidio. Leslie was able to always adeptly address the multiple levels of needs and considerations and quickly revise and rework the designs to fit changing needs and cost considerations. It was great fun to work with Leslie on these projects and I can’t imagine anyone better suited to successfully meet the challenges she faced!
I came to Leslie because I wanted a fresh look to my marketing materials. She was referred to me by someone in my business, although I knew her from other people who worked with her in design jobs and had always heard that she was extremely talented and professional.
I had intended to interview a few different people, but from our first meeting, I knew she got me. She asked a lot of questions and told me what I needed to tell her–to elicit the look and feel of the branding I wanted to achieve. I knew she would pay attention to who I was and the brand I was looking to build and not just deliver to me what she thought my marketing should look like.
At the same time I decided to embark on this new marketing venture, I was changing companies. Since I just hang my license at a brokerage, it doesn’t really matter if I have a similar look and feel as my brokerage–until it DOES matter. Meaning, the company that I was moving to is a more urban and hip company with more energized marketing materials. So, having it mesh a bit, was a bonus. I sent Leslie the company logo and the website and she was able to successfully integrate my look with my new company’s branding. A total win!
She is extremely easy to work with and grasps very quickly what the client wants to achieve.
It has been a real treat having Leslie launch my new marketing campaign for me. For anyone who is looking to brand themselves online, I highly recommend you talk to Leslie–she won’t give you the standard boiler-plate template boring stuff. She’ll figure out who you are and what you want to convey and help you set yourself apart from others out there. And she’ll make it beautiful.
Leslie did a beautiful job updating and redesigning our Sisterhood Newsletter. She is extremely responsible, detail oriented and knowledgeable.
