"Joanne was very helpful when I came to her for advice in my portfolio. She helped me select my best work and show it in a way that was clear for everyone to understand; but more importantly, she gives you personalized advice and tutorials taking into account your style and the way you want your portfolio to look. I am very grateful to her since my work now looks more professional and well presented. I would recommend her without any doubts."
