Don’t just take our word for it. Here’s what a few of our amazing clients had to say.
“We were a tiny startup when we first started working with Emily, and for two years now she has played a central role in helping Bare Bones scale sustainably and streamline its supply chain. She has helped us identify and mitigate our vulnerabilities while playing to our strengths as a brand. She was also pivotal in helping us navigate a risky product transition. She is responsive, attentive to detail and as obsessed with our business as we are - a true one-in-a-million when it comes to outsourced partners.”
“We have been working with Emily for over 3 years and during that time she has achieved Non-GMO Project verification for all of our products, assisted with improving costing on our products through competitive sourcing and has recently taken on all production planning and inventory management responsibilities. Her industry knowledge, responsiveness and attention to detail has been crucial as our company has continued to grow. She has been an indispensable member of our team and we highly recommend her services in supply chain and operations.”
"I originally reached out to Emily 2 years ago when I was looking for operational assistance to support our quickly growing company. Over those two years she has managed our inventory and fulfillment, assisted us in locating warehousing and manufacturing partners and helped us to build our budget from the bottom up. Her professionalism and customer service has been second to none and I trust her implicitly with the well-being of our company."
“I like to refer to Emily as a spreadsheet Ninja. She has an uncanny ability to distill difficult information into streamlined analysis so that thoughtful decisions can be made. I have worked extensively with Emily on cost modeling, supply chain and margin analysis for several new business ventures over the past two years and have been very impressed with her all-in cost modeling. She has set the new gold standard for my team. I would absolutely recommend working with Emily and would be pleased to provide more informational in a professional reference”
