I was able to give my input and then Christina would clearly communicate what I wanted to the team. She would be a GREAT project leader and I would recommend her highly for any web development projects."

"I take this opportunity to recommend Christina Petrie as a wonderful resource to use in creating web sites. Recently she took a site of mine that was in rough form and turned it into a really beautiful and well-functioning site. What I appreciated so much was the communication we had together. I could generally describe what I wanted and she built it making important changes and suggestions along the way. Christina is very approachable and I continue to tap into her expertise as issues arise. I highly recommend Christina to anyone who wants help and guidance in creating a truly exceptional web site."
