"Kris is one of the most dedicated, professional and well-organised people I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with. I first came across her talents when she was a graphic designer, witnessing her creative flair and strong eye for detail first hand as a collaborating copywriter. 

 

However, it was not long before Kris’ other obvious assets saw her promoted to head of our creative department. Working under her in this position, Kris’ extraordinary multilingual communication skills, charisma and natural aptitude for management were put to full use as she efficiently and skilfully coordinated with a whole range of different people, from writers and designers to senior stakeholders and important clients.

 

What really came across about Kris in the time I worked with her was her extreme humbleness. She was always the first to dish out praise and encouragement, and never expected anything back in return. Above all she is a kind, thoughtful, and warmhearted person, who is fiercely committed and rather excellent at everything she puts her hand to."

"La colaboración de Kristin con ONG Rescate ha sido fundamental para la entidad. Como diseñadora gráfica, diseñó los nuevos materiales corporativos de la organización en calidad de voluntaria, desarrollando un trabajo profesional, de calidad y totalmente desinteresado. Su paciencia, generosidad, rapidez y habilidad han sido claves para poder obtener los materiales necesarios para dar a conocer la labor de la organización. Así, su compromiso no es solo con su excepcional trabajo, en este caso de diseño, sino con el fin del mismo, la defensa de los derechos humanos."

 

Lourdes Calvo

"I had the opportunity to work with Kristin (in the distance) for six months. She has always been reactive and fast in responding to my request and needs. Her work is superb and she perfectly understood my needs. Her professionalism was key in helping to run our Japan and Sierra Leone projects smoothly."
