Mark Baartse, CMO, Showpo
I've worked with Karina to take our email and other direct channels to the next level. Karina is great at identifying opportunities and then executing them, taking full ownership from concept to finished product. She makes my life easier!

Juvita Janto, Marketing Director at Pet Circle
Karina worked with speed to build some of our customer communication journeys whilst quickly gained understanding of our business, our audience and worked through our internal process. She was also great in translating technical requirements with our product team. It's been invaluable getting her insights and expertise.

Jessica Ruisan, Art Director at Professional Beauty Solutions
Karina was incredibly knowledgeable in understanding the e-commerce process and informative in tailoring it to our needs. It was an extra bonus when I found out she's also a GENIUS copywriter. She just ‘got’ it straight away which is so refreshing as it's often hard to find people who actually know what they're doing.
