"Ivellisse is integral to everything I do, from coming up with the name “Racy Conversations” and my logo and brand to planning events that are super fun and engaging and deeply meaningful and inspiring!  I learn from her every day and am so inspired by her. Ivellisse epitomizes what Sonia Sotomayor said this country needs:
more wise Latinas in positions of power!
- Karen Fleshman, CEO & Founder of Racy Conversations


"It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Ivellisse. She has been critical in helping our organization to push our vision, storytelling and branding. Ivi is constantly pushing herself in terms of creativity, design, and impact on her audience. She asks provocative questions and views design and branding on a deep level; her process is not just about fonts and colors but about stories and lives.

Ivellisse is professional, easy to work with, unassuming, patient, and caring. Her work has grown alongside ours; we are honored to be a part of her journey. "
- Maggie Goldstein Cooper, Head of Talent at Caliber Schools

"On a personal level, Ivellisse is a joy to work with, always calm and collected, she can handle any curve ball thrown her way with grace. On a professional note, she's extremely organized, resourceful, and responsive. This was my first time hosting a happy hour with the sole purpose of raising funds, and I'm extremely thankful I had Ivellisse in my corner!

She gently led me when it came to dealing with vendors. and provided enough guidance and space so I could actually learn, and still helped with the heavy lifting." 
- Clara Saenzpardo, Formerly @ Diabetes Hands Foundation


"Ivellisse was our go-to communications and community support for our past two [design thinking] challenges – one on the cost of college in the U.S. and one on reimagining the end-of-life experience. She is brilliant when it comes to social media and writing, and even more savvy when it comes to managing communities.

I felt absolutely confident and thrilled to have Ivellisse working on critical elements of our project execution. In addition to her communication and organization skills, Ivellisse is a tremendous joy to work with. She's thoughtful, thorough, and FUN to work with." 
- Joanna Spoth, Manager @ OpenIDEO
