"Stephanie brought enthusiasm, professionalism and creativity to the project. One of Stephanie's greatest strengths is her ability to manage relationships and work collaboratively with our business partners and team members - she managed our partner's expectations relative to learning deliverables while representing the team in a positive and professional manner. She combined her in-depth knowledge of adult learning theory and instructional design experience to determine the appropriate solutions to address client's needs - always keeping the customer at the centre.  Stephanie is a very dedicated and reliable team player - she possesses the necessary experience, interpersonal skills, and work ethic that would be valued by any team."
