"Kathy is the most competent artist I have ever worked with in my many years of film/video production. Her work always has a way a melding into the production and doesn't detract nor stand out too much, but just helps tell the story intended. Friendly, fun on set, and the consummate professional. The only reason I have ever hired anyone else is when Kathy was already booked. So book early and you'll thank yourself."
— Richard Lyons, was Kathy's client

"Kathy has always been a great asset to many of our video shoots at Nu Skin. She has a great attitude and makes the set a little more enjoyable, especially when tensions might otherwise rule the day. She is always willing to give 100%, and then some, even when asked to step out of her comfort zone. She does a great job with her craft and is always fun to work with."

Kathy's wonderful personality, professional demeanor and excellent people skills were a joy to experience every day. Her skills as a makeup artist are far above the norm.
