“Lucinda Valentine was an outstanding, highly dependable contractor on my team for over two years. The whole team loved working with her, and I wanted to hire her as a regular employee but Google would have required her to move to Sunnyvale to work on site. With her broad set of design skills and strong technical acumen, Lucinda was able to handle all of the various disparate projects we threw at her. She managed to use Google’s kludgy proprietary tools to produce hundreds of interactive in-app training modules for admins and users of Google’s enterprise and edu products. She also managed localization in 8 languages, and when our Sales team told us two major international prospects needed us to add two additional languages to close their deals, Lucinda made it happen in record time. (The total value of those deals exceeded $200 million.)
Lucinda can do so many things really well, it’s like she’s a Swiss army knife with Wüsthof blades. She’s also one of the nicest and most dedicated coworkers you can find. I highly recommend her.” — Chris McGuire, Senior Manager, Technical Documentation at Google
