Meaning comes from stories, but the mood, tone and urgency visuals effectively convey are natural partners in communication. Before Julie wowed our clients with thousands of creative slides that resonate, she experienced both sides of the table by building her craft with an agency for 10 years and then shifting to the corporate world, managing direct mail and email campaigns for AT&T, covering 150 markets. As our Director of Visual Ideation she forms the perfect bridge between our talented designers and understanding our clients’ audience and their visual needs. Julie is often found with her hand on her chin uttering the words, “I’m not feeling the vibe of that color.”
It’s not uncommon for creative types to have a strong affinity for the music and entertainment sectors, and that was LIsalynn’s background before arriving at Presentation Partners. “LL” (as we call her) has seen more than 15,000 presentation slides illuminate her monitor since joining near our 2006 beginning. That rich experience benefits you when she puts her creativity to work on your template design project as our lead designer and branding specialist.
Trained by hospitality conglomerate Marriott while still a college student, Jenni was taught never to say no to a customer. This attitude persists today, making her our most enthusiastic team member. As our lead designer and content specialist, Jenni has an insatiable need to be on the bleeding edge of the latest tools to improve design development with our team and interaction with our clients. Since graduating from Villanova University her versatile, 19-year career has included forays into branding, guerrilla and digital marketing, as well as making use of a well-honed set of web development skills. Our resident coffee junkie, she’s the architect behind the website you’re now visiting.
As a scientist, Maggie spent over a decade in molecular biology research, working in the National Institutes of Health, the Smithsonian and Washington State University, where she completed her masters in biology. While writing grants, authoring peer-reviewed articles and teaching undergraduate courses she saw the communication side of the scitech world sorely lacking in clear, compelling, persuasive arguments that would get audiences excited. So she followed her passion for storytelling away from the lab bench in order to bring clarity to science and technology communication for regular Joes.
Armed with a Ph.D. in business psychology, Kathryn employs her insightful ability as our Project Manager to influence the psyche of team members and clients alike — all in the name of ushering your project across the finish line. With so many projects and milestones, Kathryn’s role can be like herding cats. So much so that it takes the experience of a former expatriate who is undaunted by what surrounds her. As a mother of twins she learned the art of juggling activities by deploying humor as a survival mechanism and key element of her personality. Kathryn has been herding the cats of the Presentation Partners team since 2015.
A public speaking coach and award-winning journalist, Tiffani has a love affair with words and how they’re presented. Without her skills as the Presentation Partners proofreader, our clients would be subject to embarrassing blunders at the most inopportune times. Serving as an anchor and reporter for Armed Forces Radio and Television Services helped groom her craft for the militaristic precision required to be a trusted proofreader. Tiffani’s award-winning career in commercial television news provided key experience and exposed her to real-world, high-stakes situations that cannot be experienced in an English classroom.
