I'm leaving a second review for Kat for her work on The Fetch as her work has been incredible. She's professional, caring and such an amazing content curator. She is super great at finding the best of the internet and condensing it down into digestible pieces. Thanks, Kat!

Kat is simply great! She's been curating content for our social channels at CloudPeeps and Freelance Friday. She really understands trends and how to curate content from the perfect resources to build brand. She's diligent, communicative and has shares ideas around her specific expertise.
