www.linkedin.com/in/angiesmithsc/ I have spent the last few years supporting start-ups and SaaS companies in Silicon Valley like Pbworks (since 2008) and Recurly (since 2011) I have the highest satisfaction rates and lowest response times of any of my peers. I have the ability to quickly assess whether an issue is urgent and requires immediate escalation or if further troubleshooting will provide an easy solution. I have nearly a decade of experience offering unmatched support for companies, from small start-ups to fortune 500 businesses. I have used tools such as salesforce, livechat, zendesk, gotomeeting, and google hangouts to provide support. I am hard working, motivated, honest, dependable, creative, precise, detail oriented and above all else committed to customer satisfaction.

Have you ever hired a designer to create the perfect work but they didn’t quite capture your vision? Did you find the ideal freelancer but they had to bail out before finishing the project? Were you satisfied with your contractor but the agreement didn’t include revisions and you need a change made yesterday? I can fix that for you, stat. My specialty is doctoring, editing, retouching, re-creating and otherwise improving designs using Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. I draw my own elements, find great stock and match your layout to make that almost-perfect image into exactly what you were looking for. That’s not all though. I also write high quality, well-researched keyword-rich content, edit and proofread existing written work, offer exceptional customer experience support and training, and provide many other solutions for the enrichment of your business. If you experience the occasional emergency that requires an experienced graphic medic or if your workload is overflowing and you need someone who knows how to triage, save me as a favorite or hire me today!
