Amy Farabaugh – Great Aupair

Working with Kay over the past year and a half has been wonderful. She’s intelligent and driven when it comes to organization. She’s a leader and very focused in her work.

If it wasn’t for her reaching out to help me, via social media, I would not have had the opportunity to work from home.

Kay has been an inspiration to me and I’m happy to have had the chance to work with her and get to know her on a personal and professional level.

Karrine served as affiliate manager for CookieSurprises, LLC. In her work with our company, she was very effective in recruiting key affiliates, as well as assisting them with activating links and converting sales. In addition to her exceptional marketing skills, as a bonus, she is really gifted with the ability to create eye-catching graphics, and created many adorable designs and increased our click ratio significantly. I would highly recommend Karrine for any position that mandates a highly skilled marketing manger
