"I met with Emily and discussed my business plan for a new company, Healthy Nostalgia and engaged her to assist in forming the company’s brand and online presence. During our meeting, Emily not only gathered information, she also added her creative ideas for the company to help form branding ideas. From our initial meeting, Emily developed my logo and created an initial company website. Emily took the information that she gathered from me and used her creativity to assist in forming the company’s brand and mission. I was very impressed with Emily’s communication skills as well as her graphic design talent. I look forward to continuing to work with her as my company evolves and highly recommend her for future graphic design projects".

"Emily worked with me each semester she was on campus during her 4 years at Champlain College. She started in her first year, excited to do something positive for the environment and she continued on as Waste Reduction Coordinator over the four years. Emily brings a very positive attitude, a willing spirit, and passion for learning and doing. In her final semester, when many seniors might start to fade out of their jobs, Emily came with a renewed vigor to her work. She asked for additional projects, she assisted others, and got others engaged. I'd strongly recommend Emily for future employment".
"During the fall of my Senior year in college, I hired Emily to make a team logo for our game. What struck me about Emily's work approach is her consistent communication. After giving parameters for our logo, she consistently gave us updates showing her work as she developed the final piece. She took feedback extremely well, asking questions about what we were looking for and how it could be improved. I would easily work with Emily Gatz again as she has become one of my closer contacts for anything Graphic design based".
"I am very pleased to write a letter of reference on behalf of Emily Gatz whom I directly supervised as a Digital Media & Marketing intern at Town & Country Real Estate in the summer of 2017. Over that time, Emily independently developed a series of concept pieces used on company-wide social media. Her innate creativity and expertise in Adobe Photoshop were key to the success of this campaign. In addition, she assisted in the management and message creation for several company social media accounts.
It was a pleasure to see her work evolve over the course of our time together, it showed tremendous promise. Emily is an enthusiastic team player who engaged actively in creative discussions and planning. She demonstrated great work ethic, friendly demeanor, and high productivity throughout her internship. I am thankful to Emily’s contributions to this company and wish her all the very best in her future career".

"Emily Gatz was the SADD( Students Against Destructive Decisions ) club president at Mattituck Junior Senior High School during the 2015-2016 school year. During her senior year, not only was Emily a wonderful and hard-working president, she also took the time out to paint the most wonderful mural outside of my office and the room where many of our SADD club meetings take place. The mural helps to promote acceptance, kindness, prevention and leadership. I am most grateful to Emily for helping to make the area a “safe space” for all students"!!
