Some of my job openings


Heather is new to the Studios division, but I've known her since she joined Aquent about eight years ago. She's a thinker and a doer, articulate and precise and yet can play well with abstract and messy. As a practitioner, her expertise in digital design and development is what gives us the ability to lift tall buildings and walk under them. She impresses clients and talent, by the questions she asks, the knowledge she shares, and the great care taken to create or follow detailed processes to ensured consistently successful outcomes. Watching her build a digital team, and eventually solutions, for Aquent Studios is a work of art. Open minded, challenges assumptions, is fearless and respectful in all communications, at all levels within an organization. People respect her because she's smart and knows what she's doing. People like her because she put their needs above her own and does so in a thoughtful and kind manner. As a result, Heather has grown her career at Aquent/Vitamin T from an Agent to Practice Leader within Aquent/Vitamin T Staffing to the Digital Solutions Lead within Aquent Studios, Federal. During her first meeting with a senior government agency leader, the Chief said, (paraphrasing) Lee Andrese, Vice President and Chief Security Officer, Federal
Heather is intelligent and intuitive and it shows in her work. She's invested in clients and in getting the best possible fit for both them and the companies she works with. Her people skills are superb. She's well spoken and poised, funny yet empathetic. Her skills combined with her educational background provide an amazing mix that seems to the client to be effortlessly effective. Simply Brilliant! Carrie Hickman, PhD
