Jain is the rare combination of an exceptional idea woman with follow-through to make things happen. Her attention to detail is as developed as her global sense of development, which was valuable to us as a magazine, to have someone overseeing each piece of the puzzle but also knowing where it fits in the grand scheme.

If you have a problem, she has three solutions and will work with you to make them viable. She’s knowledgable across industries, with far-reaching contacts, and she tends to foresee the future, an excellent asset if you’re looking to up your game.

I love working with Jain, not only is she a great collaborator, she gets the project done and on time. She is a great coordinator and producer, if I need something to complete a project she is there to handle it.

Because of Jain, our team runs smoothly and without the normal hiccups the scope of our projects have. I highly recommend Jain.
