Sara was a very integral part in our process of creating and managing proposals for a new website. She listens to what you are looking for and can easily translate those ideas into the technical details. Very easy to work with, extremely knowledgeable and also prompt with her responses, she helps keep the project on track and holds people accountable. Sarah Owens, Marketing Directory, New Leaf Community Markets
The mark of the best project managers are that projects run smoothly without anyone ever knowing why. Sara does this exceedingly well, and gets what’s important in online communication and makes a project come together. She also gets quality, an oft overlooked concept in online communication, and that sets her apart from a lot of PMs with whom we’ve worked. Michael Diedrick President, Byte Studios, Inc.
I worked with Sara at the Small Business Development Center’s Technology Advisory Program (SBDCTAP), where she provided Web and Social Networking consultancy services for my clients. Sara produces a very high standard of work, is thorough, meticulous, and is not afraid to ask tough questions to ensure that she properly understands a client’s requirements. I would definitely work with Sara again, and the SBDCTAP clients she worked with were very happy with the results. Patrick Cook Former Director, Technology Advisory Program, Silicon Valley SBDC
Sara implemented a pilot project at UCSC’s Baskin School of Engineering called “VC1to1” — essentially a project to create one-to-one meetings between venture capitalists and UCSC professors and graduate students. This is a novel project where we are trying to create a culture of VC funded entrepreneurship. There are no rules or guidebook on how to make this happen. Sara was creative, diligent and persuasive. She had to sell both VCs and academics and encourage them to find common ground. Sara used her excellent project management skills as well as her knowledge about both communities to arrange many meetings in a short amount of time. She contributed superbly at every level in this project: from its inception, technical match making, detail planning, execution, and completion. I have worked in an executive capacity with many excellent senior project managers at Apple, Sun Microsystems and other companies and Sara is their peer. Ted Goldstein Former Vice President of Developer Technologies Apple Computer

I worked directly with Sara for 15 years and she reported to me the last two. She was always an extremely meticulous, organized and responsible person to work with and could be depended upon without fail. Her accounts included major OEMs such as HP, who had large volumes of issues that needed to be researched, tracked and driven. They could not have had a better Account Manager than Sara, because of her customer service skills, knowledge, tenacity and attention to detail. Steve Bordwell Worldwide Engineering Services Manager, SCO

Sara, Thanks so much for the very thorough web audit you performed. You’ve identified critical needs that likely have had a negative impact on my business. I can’t thank you enough! R.P. SBDC client
The audit Sara did for us was beneficial in so many ways and gave us some real clarity in how we need to position ourselves and in what light.  We spent quite a bit of time, independently, reviewing the audit to see what changes we should make but only after speaking with her, did we realize what was really required.  Sara was articulate, detailed and concise with her recommendations. With this report & her guidance, we have a better plan on what changes & updates are to be addressed.  Already, we’ve implemented several major changes! We’re really looking forward to revisiting her for an updated audit once we’ve completed this current assignment.  This was such a huge undertaking for us and having an audit to site was something we had never even considered! O.L. SBDC client

We’ve now worked with Sara Isenberg over the last several weeks as she conducted an audit of our company’s website.  I wanted to make sure you know how incredibly well her services reflect on your office.  We were very favorably surprised to discover that we could obtain such professionalism through a publicly <SBDC TAP> funded service. Sara’s findings and suggestions will undoubtedly improve the value our website delivers to our company.  At every step of the website audit, Sara was professional, punctual, and insightful. Thank you for the services your office provides and, more specifically, for the great value Sara Isenberg offers to Central Coast businesses like ours. Michael Schimpf Vice President,  Advance Survey Design, LLC
Sara and I completed several projects together.  I was impressed at her diligence to track even the the smallest detail to completion, and her kindness when bringing a task to my attention. Mary Edith Ingraham Senior Software Engineer
Dear Sara, Thank you for all of the time you have spent with me.  I really appreciate what a wonderful trainer you have been.  You are very patient and clear about teaching me how to work independently with new software. It has been very helpful to have you guide me to think into the future about where I might want to expand and develop ideas into the future. For example, today my needs are basic but how do I want the database to look six months or one year from now. How will my needs change and how can I best set up structures that will provide me to be nimble if I want to change or expand.I enjoy working with you and I would highly recommend your consulting services. Thank you! Camilla Boolootian Development Director, Pacific Collegiate School
