Pisst, look below! Check out what people are saying…

I just love when ideas, people and technology come together in unexpected ways. From opposing perspectives can come a fusion of innovation, collaboration, vision and passion. From the start, I have always used product and project planning, service/system design, user experience, with a dash of marketing and brand strategy for good measure, to guide people through projects from start to completion.  But instead of just telling you, take a peek below to see what people are saying about the White Gazelle (Aka -Elizabeth Neumaier)

She dives deep into the projects and her passion for excellence shines through in her work. Not only are Elizabeth’s insights spot on but she always brings that extra nugget of insight that moves a project to the next level. We are lucky to have her on the team.” -Kerri Schoonyoung, Founder, Dept. 11, Inc. – Digital Marketing Consultancy + Outsourced Marketing Solutions 2017

She is a team player and always works to help her team shine.” -Kathryn Rowe, VP Director, Project Management – Product Development at The Abundancy 2015-16

“I worked with Liz on an exciting challenge – simplifying the online tax filing experience for Jackson Hewitt. Liz’s ability to “go deep” into the work helped uncover user potential pitfalls, allowing us to avoid them and move ahead with the cleanest solution. On top of the challenge of simplifying the process for the user, we had to explain the technical side of use cases, wire frames, and site structures to get buy in for the changes to the responsive site experience. Liz was able to get the clients on board by speaking their language and passionately walking everyone through the ins and outs of user flows. Liz’s enthusiasm resulted in thoughtful work and she was great to partner with on this and many other projects.” -John Schroeder, Account Director, Leo Burnett 2015-16

“I had the good opportunity to work with Liz on the redesign of Jackson Hewit. As the UX Director she was charged with helping re-imagined its user experience, streamlining their complex applications and redefining the user journeys.

It was impressive to watch Liz dig into the details and organize the project into manageable pieces for the clients to understand and for developers to execute.” -Kevin Leebroderick, Senior User Experience Architect at Frequency540 2015

“Liz was able to work through formidable constraints (organizational & technical) to deliver sound work. She is extremely passionate and knowledgable. Liz constantly brings new and insightful ideas to the table. Liz was always opened to my creative input as an equal. She would often integrate and improve upon my recommendations with measured insight.” -Judy Delamora, UX Senior Visual Designer at Bank of America 2014

“I had the pleasure of working with Liz on the Receivables Next Gen – Agile project. From the beginning Liz dove right in and quickly got up to speed on complexities of our corporate banking products. Throughout the year she worked with our team, she helped provide innovative UX solutions for the future generation of CashPro. Liz consistently provided interesting UX insight and designs for our agile stories. She formulated fresh new UX solutions meeting all of the Acceptance Criteria and was always willing to partner and work together as a team. She had an excellent ability to take Product feedback and stakeholder concerns and turn around great ideas and designs that helped focus and elevate strategic discussions to move the project forward. She was a breath of fresh air and her impact had a positive long-term effect on the product. I would welcome the chance to work with Liz again in the future!” -Laurie Brass, VP eChannel Manager – Product Development at Bank of America 2014
