Vouch for them.

Jen Aprahamian
They're my professor  •  Co-Founder, VINA. Previously Software Engineer, Laurel & Wolf.
Mary has entrepreneurial drive and passion, but what really stands out for me is her depth of domain experience. Her approach to product is ... thoughtful and well-researched, and I trust her to create things that are truly suited for the market. I'm impressed by her passion for learning, and taking things to the next level.
Cathy (Shaver) Harper MA EdTech, PMP, SPHR
We worked together  •  Sr. Project Manager, Devon Energy. Previously Lead Project Manager, Enable Midstream Partners.
Mary knows how to delight customers and stakeholders. Her ability to identify what end users need most and translate it into commercially v ... iable products is what makes her a start-up's most valuable asset. She's able to cut through all the noise and laser in on what make the most sense to develop and in what order to continue to delight customers in the short and long-term while also satisfying investors. She is excellent at walking the fine line of pushing a company to deliver what will make it successful in the long run, despite the pressures and temptations to satisfy short-term needs. Instead of telling us what we want to hear. She shows us what we need to know to make the product and the company work over time.
Evan Dorn
We worked together  •  Previously Founder and CEO, Logical Reality Design, Inc.. Previously CTO and Cofounder, Equibid.
Mary was my client, and the VP and project manager of a startup MVP my team built in 2015. She was one of the best clients we'd ever had and ... a truly fantastic project manager: my team had clear direction at every moment. Despite undergoing necessary design changes mid-stream, the project was both on-time and on-budget. Mary's leadership and skill at communicating with the engineering team were fundamental to that project's success. I would not hesitate to work with Mary again in any capacity, and I can't recommend her more highly.

Evan Dorn
We worked together  •  Previously Founder and CEO, Logical Reality Design, Inc.. Previously CTO and Cofounder, Equibid.
Evan is, above all else, a big picture thinker and strategist. But it is balanced incredibly well with his attention to detail. His years of ... experience across a broad range of disciplines makes him a go-to and mentor that I would be proud to have on my team.

Jen Aprahamian
Co-Founder, VINA. Previously Software Engineer, Laurel & Wolf.
Jen's singular focus on achieving a goal is truly inspirational. She is a highly intelligent and driven engineer, educator, and founder. She ... 's a dynamo that doesn't stop and has an instinct for trends that translate into product perfection. I can't recommend her highly enough.

Cathy (Shaver) Harper MA EdTech, PMP, SPHR
They're my friends  •  Sr. Project Manager, Devon Energy. Previously Lead Project Manager, Enable Midstream Partners.
Cathy has a way of teasing out the critical aspects of a project and maintaining a focus on accomplishing the end goal. Her background spans ... a range of industries that have required the ability to pivot quickly without losing footing. She is driven and an excellent communicator.
