Shakima is a pleasure to work with and a consummate professional. I’ve worked with Shakima over a number of years on various creative projects and she has always been someone I could rely on to understand the process and goals of any project.

-Greg Neundorfer, Partner at 15 Fingers

I had the pleasure of working with Shakima for several years. As a client, she was completely focused and knew what she was looking for but was always open to new opportunities. She was also extremely responsive and very punctual. These great traits will make her an asset no matter where she goes but most of all her smile is contagious even over the phone, something that truly separates her from the crowd.

 Shakima was always a pleasure to work with no matter what was going on during the work week. Always receptive to new ideas & opportunities, I knew she was a marketing star with great potential. Also a shrewd negotiator, Shakima knew how to get the best value for her product. I would definitely recommend Shakima, as she bring the best of both worlds to the table- creativity & business sense.
