"Janice's title at Extrovertic was Senior Technical Project Manager. But it just as easily could have been Senior Digital Educator. Developer. Presentation designer. Mentor. Or any number of other titles. Janice has an amazingly broad skill set and will be a major asset to any business. Or should I say assets?”
Mark Drossman, Founding Partner, Chief Creative Extrovert, Extrovertic
"Janice has at least one gazillion talents and managing projects in a timely fashion is just one that I witnessed at Extrovertic. Janice has a talented eye for design detail (and copy detail, for that matter). She's bilingual - speaking Creative as well as Account - making the work flow smoothly. She's unfazed by hard work, getting her jobs done first and helping others. She created order from chaos, helping keep projects in bite-sized pieces that we could all focus on. Janice is also a bit of a magician, turning the ridiculous into the actionable. So no matter what language your agency babbles, Janice can translate projects into on-time, on-budget, no-surprises deliverables.”
Pete Van Bloem, Content Simplifying Extrovert, Extrovertic

Valerie Bugtai-Elias, EVP, Chief Account Extrovert, Extrovertic
"Janice and I worked together at a very busy agency. Through all the client demands—both reasonable and unreasonable—she was pro-active, organized, and unflappable. Equally impressive is her digital knowledge. Janice would be a terrific addition to any team smart enough to grab her.”

Steve Frederick, Creative Director, Flashpoint Former Creative Director,
"I have known Janice for over 11 years. Janice is one of the most knowledgeable, professional, and, indeed, personable individuals I have had the pleasure of working with. She is an extremely resourceful person, a true subject matter expert, who always has the answer, or knows where to get it, skills that are in rare supply these days. To be simple, Janice knows her stuff. Janice has always demonstrated the ability to guide her staff and support their individual growth. As the director of studio operations for many years, Janice ensured that the studio was on the cutting edge and it enabled me, as an account person, to offer my clients the best products and services.
I recommend her highly and hope we can work together in the future."

Moreover, she displayed great care and compassion for her work which was not only effective with my brand, yet contagious! Whenever I requested her assistance, she would immediately focus her attention on my work and ensure I was covered by either her or delegate the tasks to her staff. She also demonstrated consistent follow-up to confirm accuracy and completeness. All are true characteristics of a competent Manager. While I miss our working relationship, any company would appreciate her diligence and impeccable work ethic."

"As a freelancer, you go from place to place and expect to be anonymous. Janice was a real leader in her studio, but also treated her employees with humanity.
