Vickery is a creative soul who understands business needs. A great combination. Jeff Honea, Creative Director, The New York Times "Vickery is an excellent writer. She can communicate complicated concepts in a concise, clear manner. Vickery is also reliable, detail-oriented and delightful to work with."
