Here is what some of my past clients and colleagues have to say about working with me.
Kristen helped us in formulating Edurio's product strategy ahead of an investment round and helped manage R&D processes for a key product afterwards. Her deep understanding of academic, business, and practitioner views of education has allowed her to appreciate the complex day-to-day realities of an edtech start-up, and has helped us make more informed and balanced decisions in a clear and structured manner. We are looking forward to collaborating with Kristen again in the future.
