Kristen is both a motivating leader and a visionary strategist, which made her an incredible agent for change. Her mastery of the discipline is evident in any of the projects she has touched, but what I had the privilege of seeing is the way she navigates the teams to a place of clarity. In moments of wheel-spinning or ambiguity she had the roadmap for that breakthrough. I had an amazing education just from watching her work.
She has a lot of responsibility, but she made the time to build our department. She designed a skill development program for me. She advocated our discipline while demonstrating its immense value. She consulted on internal workflow and functions. She created workshare processes so that we effectively communicated and collaborated. And she always delivered before deadline.
Kristen works with verve and efficiency, but what makes her stand above her talented colleagues is her unwavering commitment to doing the right thing. She sees the big picture, beyond industry mores. She is generous of her many talents and always worked to make our office a better place.
– Christine Baum, Content Strategist, Huge
I had the privilege to work with Kristen on several projects at Huge and was always impressed with her dedication, integrity, and grit. She has the singular ability to create a solid vision for a project, while simultaneously accounting for how things work on even the most granular level. Kristen also has the keen ability to foresee potential bumps in the road (both for clients and internal groups) and has saved our team unnecessary work on more than one occasion. With Kristen’s leadership, there’s no need to wonder about the direction you’re taking—she’s thought everything through and is most likely a couple steps ahead of you. Which makes sense, because she’s one of the smartest people I know. Kristen is a valuable asset to any team and I'd be thrilled to work with her again.
– Rachel Gillett, lead copywriter, huge
Kristen is smart, driven, patient, diligent and just overall nice to be around. She gets along with everyone and always keeps her composure. She magically is able to siphon through extensive amounts of content while staying focused and always positioning her recommendation from a place of strategy and forward thinking. Clients and coworkers love her equally.
– Jackie Horwich, Sr. Project Manager, Huge
Kristen is the most dependable and detail-oriented person I've ever worked with, and in combination with her sharp mind and quick reasoning skills, this results in some of the highest-quality work I've seen a person produce. Beyond immaculate deliverables and presentation skills, Kristen genuinely cares about the quality of the final product and has a knack for thinking of the overall project team, outside of her specific content role. She is a strategic partner with a keen business mind, and I will always welcome the opportunity to work with Kristen.
– Erica Sayers, Engagement Director, Huge
Kristen and I worked together on a product development project for the Nike team. She was amazingly organized and detailed, and made working on a very fast turn project delightful. She is adept at distilling complex information into an easy to understand system, and ensures that the strategy behind that system is bulletproof. I would work with Kristen again in a heartbeat, she's an invaluable leader and team member.
– Sarah Smith, Engagement Director, Huge
I was Kristen's manager at InterContinental Hotels Group.
Kristen is one sharp lady; she's great to work with because she's willing to collaborate with anyone to get the work right and is always honest and clear about her feedback. She's got a broad knowledge base from her experience with a variety of clients, which adds value to any project. And she is passionate about trends and data; she will always build project recommendations on secure strategic ground because she's very thoughtful and analytical. Lastly, she's a masterful storyteller; she can take a complex project with lots of data and moving parts and crystallize it into a compelling presentation that gets people on board.
I learned a lot from Kristen and enjoyed working with her, and I would work with her again if I had the opportunity. Any company looking for a content thought leader would be lucky to have her.
Katie Riddle, Content Strategy Manager, InterContinental Hotels Group
Kristen's writing style is clear, conversational and compelling. She is extremely responsive to requests, she meets deadlines with ease and she can turn out articles quickly and accurately. If you're looking for a solid writer or employee, you've found her.
– Alexis Monson, Managing Editor, Brit + Co // Co-founder, Punkpost
Working with Kristen has been an absolute delight & her approach to content & brand strategy has been invaluable to starting my own business. I came to Kristen just a few short months ago with a very high level (and extremely unorganized) "dream" of starting a blog, but was lost in terms of where to start and how to focus my efforts most effectively. This dream that I had been pondering for years, is now a reality - all thanks to Kristen. She took my "big idea" and helped me refine it down to a solid plan, creating stepping stones and key objectives for me to work against, which ultimately made my dream feel much more achievable. She also helped me create my own website, using SquareSpace, which I couldn’t be more pleased with. Kristen is a friend, a trusted advisor, an expert in her field and a true cheerleader for both you & your business. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to bring their "big idea" to life.
Kristen has been an invaluable resource and support to me on my journey to starting my first non-profit. She provides guidance when I need it most, and she's so very passionate about her work and helping others to make their dreams come to life. She's extremely smart, strategic, innovative, intuitive, and the list of descriptive positive adjectives goes on forever. Outside of her sheer brain power and pulse on the industry, she is one of the most genuine, kind, good-to-the-core people you will ever meet. She's a mentor to trust. A friend to lean on. And my "big idea" would only be an idea if I didn't have her. I look forward to the day I can have her stand up somewhere on some stage beside me and thank her for helping me get to where I am. If you have the opportunity or slightest inkling that you think Kristen is someone you would want to work with, or have as your consultant - the answer is always "yes." You and your business and big idea will forever be grateful for it. Mark my words. Onward. And upward.
– Sarah Carlson, Founder of Good for Goodness Sake
When facing any digital project, Kristen is a teammate I'd want on my side to meet the challenge. Her mastery of content strategy and her heart of a teacher make for a wonderful and winning dynamic. She is terrific about understanding what adds value to users and always fights for it. I welcome the opportunity to work with Kristen again.
– Dale Kim, User Experience Lead, Huge
Hands down the smartest one in the room. Kristen not only has a love for storytelling and content, but an immense passion for new technology and style. The best work of my career to date has been because of working side by side with Kristen Green. Her expertise grows daily as her curiosity seems to constantly soak up knowledge. For Kristen "learn and share" is equivalent to "inhale and exhale". Out of anyone that I have ever worked with, Kristen is most likely to some day give a "TED Talk". I have been extremely lucky to witness only the catalyst of what Kristen will accomplish.
– Bryan Moss, Creative Director, AKQA
Kristen is one of the most dependable people I've ever worked with, much less managed. Her unwavering personal responsibility and ownership not only means she meets deadlines without fail (even the insane ones) and creates meticulous deliverables that make clients swoon, but it extends to her professional development as well.
Kristen takes her career seriously, and she makes it her business to stay informed the ever-changing state of content strategy and interactive design in general. She's well-read and fully dialed in to her professional community. So not only was she a low-maintenance, high-yield employee, she taught me several things along the way.
But for me, one of the best things about working with Kristen is her contagious cheerfulness and sense of humor. She's a joy to spend your day with.
– Rosemary Williams, Sr Content Strategist, Razorfish

– Ashley Ferrell, Content Strategist, IHG
When the search began to find Kristen Green's replacement at JWT, a colleague asked me what I wanted in a manager. I told him I wanted another Kristen Green.
I couldn't ask for a better leader and mentor. Kristen made her expectations clear and her feedback was always thorough. Even though her own workload was immense, I always knew I could count on her to make the time for me when I needed guidance. Under her leadership I grew into a more confident and capable content strategist. I am so grateful for the lessons she taught me.

You could say that Kristen lives and breathes whatever project she is a part of. She always gives 120% to whatever task is assigned.

The day that Kristen joined my team it was clear that she would quickly climb the ladder. She has a strong work ethic and performs under very high pressure situations with a positive attitude. I could always be confident that every project in her hands would be well managed. In addition to being proactive and meticulous in detail, she is a strategic thinker and brings tremendous value to everything she does.
– Laurie Baskin, Group Account Director, 360i
Kristen is a highly motivated individual, creative thinker and problem solver, whose energy and enthusiasm is contagious. She is genuinely passionate about her work and her clients, and it shows clearly in the work she produces.

Kristen has a sincere desire to make processes more effective and streamlined. Kristen also has a passion for branding and brings that knowledge to her team. I would highly recommend Kristen for any account management, branding or strategic planning position that she may pursue in the future.
– Adawndria Fisher, JWT
Kristen is a bright, creative, and focused professional who worked for my organization while a student in Journalism at the University of Georgia (UGA). During her service to the Information Technology Planning and Decision Support (ITPDS) team, Kristen developed into a resource that went well beyond what is often considered a "student" position.
As we were building a methodology for the IT Core Service Planning Model at UGA, Kristen became an influential and valued resource who developed bench-marking strategies, built recommendations for inclusion in creating a supportable model, and provided valuable marketing suggestions as we communicated the plans to the organization.
Organizations who are looking for colleagues who are both invested and who can "get things accomplished" will do well to consider including Kristen on their team.
– Gregory Topp, ITPDS, University of Georgia
Kristen has an incredible number of highly desirable skill sets that will propel her forward in this industry. Her expertise lies in the use and application of new technology, not only from the account management side, but also from design standpoint. She is fully committed to expanding the realm of brand interaction and experience--and it is individuals like her that will lead us into the next era of advertising.
– Kirsten Strausbaugh-Hutchinson, Senior Lecturer of Advertising at UGA's Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication
Kristen Green is a dedicated professional with excellent skills in project management and marketing.
– Lynn Latimer WIlson, Associate CIO at University of Georgia
It was a pleasure to work with Kristen on the Brain Train, a non-profit mass transit initiative that will connect Atlanta to Athens.
