Natalie Gershon was my boss for the last 4 years. During that time she taught me how to translate strategy into tactics and ideas into actio ... n, budgeting, cost estimating and fiscal management, and how to prioritize tasks and successfully balance multiple projects. All while being able to work on time driven deadlines in an entrepreneurial environment. I am truly grateful for getting the chance to work with her and I look forward to working with her again in the future.

Jae-Min Mandala
We worked together  •  Customer Service Manager, Zevia.
Not only is Natalie a great communicator, and collaborator. She has a style that makes her colleagues happy to work with and for her. Natal ... ie's style empowers everyone and let's them know that they are important to the larger goals and again, communicates those goals clearly and with exuberance. She has a flair for words. She is also a great listener and more than anything, she is not afraid to get her hands dirty. She is very detailed oriented but does not sweat the small stuff, because she always keeps her eyes on the bigger picture. Plain and simple... Natalie makes things happen and it feels great being a part of that world.

Jae-Min is a people person to the Nth degree. He finds a way to take care of the consumer and the brand with such ease. There is no greater ... advocate that can ride that fine line better and I look forward to working with him again!
