Philippa is both the most enthusiastic and most hardworking professional I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. She’s the definition of a team player yet could easily do three peoples’ work, if need be (and enough tea is provided). Her digital talents are boundless, her interpersonal skills are exceptional, and her dedication is admirable.
