"I had the pleasure of working with Grace at the Closet Factory in San Carlos. She is like a chameleon; she can be your engineer, your team leader, your designer…the list goes on. She not only brings her positive attitude and problem solving skills to the table, but also her broad knowledge of all things design, construction, and project management. She possesses a rare skill, which is being able to focus on the smallest of details while also standing back and seeing the big picture. She is always the woman for the job!"

"I worked directly with Grace during my time at Closet Factory. She trained me on multiple levels of customer service, computer applications and management orientation. Under some stressful situations Grace always found a way to handle possible disputes with a positive outcome for the customer and the company."
Senior Designer and Customer Service at Closet Factory

"It has been a pleasure to work with Grace, and a bonus to get to know her. She has done a design project for me and consulted on many issues around design, process, and program interconnections. Over several years this has become an ongoing, essential conversation. Grace possesses a very rare and estimable combination of deep intellectual and broad artistic talents, in addition to being an engaging and thoughtful person in her interactions. Her design synthesis is both creative and refined and her program management work is organized, efficient, thorough, and productive. Along with command of the details and the esthetic elements, she sees and inquires into the deeper issues across diverse aspects of the job – esthetic, technical, practical, philosophical – and readily assimilates and solves complex requirements. Grace has a work ethic that comprehends service. I enthusiastically offer the highest recommendation for this vibrant and multifaceted person."
