Client Testimonials

Jen was a huge asset to the PBS Digital Design team. As our one and only in-house front-end and WordPress developer, she had to take on multiple tasks and projects at a time with tight deadlines. Jen always implemented designs effectively while making recommendations along the way that would make the overall product better. She’s extremely organized and has great attention to detail. Throughout our years working together, she’s become not only a wonderful colleague, but also a friend and I would absolutely recommend her for any front-end position.

I had the very good fortune to manage and work with Jen Huls at Seneca One Finance. Her work was professional and detailed, and helped Seneca One successfully rebrand itself in a very competitive market. With the initiative and ability to work with different stakeholders, to understand their business needs, and to combine her creative, technical and business skills, Jen consistently produced impactful results. In short, her work was outstanding and I highly recommend her.

Jen is the Front-end Developer that every Designer dreams of. Her attention-to-detail and extreme skills to match a flat mock is beyond my comprehension. Jen is a hard worker and keeps herself updated with the latest technologies. She is never short of ideas and works very well with the team.

Jen took the initiative and mentored other team members in translating ideas to finished products. Her skillset was rare as she can jump in where needed as an Interaction designer or a Visual Designer. I was fortunate to have Jen in my team for the past 3 years and she has produced some of the great looking products for PBS Parents.
