Jenise brought substantial depth and understanding to our documentation and training goals for a complex technology project. Her ability to translate technical processes into straight forward user communications was central to our success. Her mentoring also assisted in building confidence in analysts who took over after she gave us a head start! Great to work with.
Blane Warrene Product Manager (IT) at Pacific Life Insurance Company May 24, 2017
Jenise, is one of the best Instructional Designer’s I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She is adept and creative in analyzing the client’s needs and brings fresh ideas and a pleasant personality in balancing the team. Jenise design concepts led to wonderful feedback from the client team and was well received by the learners. Not only is she easy to work with, she has the ability to anticipate needs and is astute in being able to accomplish tasks without a lot of direction. She is a critical thinker and quick on her feet, and is an amazing addition to anyone’s team or company. I wish I could work with several Jenise’s, it would add up to a lot more being done, effectively, efficiently, and with winning results.
Joyce Pryor, PMP Project Manager (Contract), ES Sales Learning at Automatic Data Processing (ADP) May 24, 2017
I reserve my highest level of recommendation for Jenise, whom I consider to be a consummate professional. She has carved out a niche for herself as a successful independent freelancer who understands not only the technical aspects of elearning development, but more importantly the consultative nature of working with clients, often remote. She is a terrific listener, able to expertly elicit requirements from clients and synthesize their needs. She is funny, bright, and throws her heart and soul into a project. I recommend Jenise highly.
Janet DiVincenzo, PMP, CPLP Assistant Director of Online Learning, California State University, Irvine May 24, 2017
I’ve had the opportunity to work with Jenise on two different departments at Pacific Life. In the first department, she worked as a Senior Technical Writer. In the second department, where we currently work together, she is a Senior e-Learning Designer. She has always been a pleasure to work with, and has done whatever it took to get the job done and get it done right. She has a range of strong skills, from writing, to editing, to instructional design, to classroom training, to e-Learning design and development. Jenise has always been a valuable asset, and a great team member.

Jenise was brought in to assist us with documenting the finite details of publishing eLearning content. She consistently provided a high quality product and a positive attitude.

She did extensive photo research and completed projection of the entire course on time and on budget. Jenise also identified several mistakes from the authors! We would highly recommend Jenise and Ridge View Media.

I hired Jenise to create an eLearning course for Coca Cola Enterprise. Our client was unable to secure a full time Subject Matter Expert which created some large challenges for my team. Jenise remained steadfast and positive the entire time. She worked diligently through evening and weekend hours so that we could meet our deadline. Her honesty and transparency allowed me to rest easy during the production process–she is easy to manage and a great partner.
Jenise has an innate ability to understand our client’s needs. She communicated with authority and exactness. These are qualities I needed on my team and made Jenise a real joy in our working relationship.

We hired Jenise on a contract basis and were THRILLED with how quickly she learned our business and our processes. I received unsolicited feedback from our internal clients about how well she understood our goals and initiatives, and those clients were amazed that she wasn’t a long term, full time employee. She is an incredibly creative and innovative individual who is always on top of current trends in the learning industry which means that the work she creates is cutting edge. Her work is world class and I would hire her back in a heart beat!
I brought Jenise into our organization to develop eLearning. I was amazed at how quickly Jenise learned how we work, our culture, our business and our organization. She was a very independent worker and once onboarded I knew that I could give Jenise a project and trust that it would be done to the highest degree of excellence. I would definitely bring Jenise back into our group for additional work.

Mike Gurtler Senior Consultant, Safe-Wise Consulting May 24, 2017
I worked with Jenise on a very large eLearning initiative for Coca-Cola Enterprises on Leadership Training. Jenise was the Instructional Designer and Writer for the financial course. She immersed herself in the source content and came up with an intelligent high level design concept. When she moved on to the storyboarding task, she collaborated well with the subject matter experts, the graphic designers and the flash developers to create a client-pleasing product. This was one of the most challenging courses in the suite of online training and we were very fortunate to have Jenise on our team. She worked well directly with the client team as well as the production team. She made my life a lot easier, that’s for sure! I would work with Jenise again in a heartbeat.

Robert Gahagan Instructional Designer and Developer at Automatic Data Processing (ADP) May 24, 2017
Jenise just completed her first project for my elearning company EPS411. I am please with her contribution to the project. When I look for a production partner my expectation is that the partner will listen to the assignment, repeat back to me the tasks, and then complete the work in a way that exceeds my expectations. Jenise did all three on a project that had a tight deadline for my company. She was also familiar with and able to use our project management tool, Basecamp, which meant she was able to start on the project as soon as it was assigned. I appreciate her contributions to this project and look forward to working with her more in 2010.
Greg Friese, M.S., NRP Owner, Emergency Preparedness Systems, LLC May 24, 2017
