"I worked with Tena during her time at Citizen Relations and would love the opportunity to work with her again! She is not only an extremely talented designer, but also a strong, conceptual, creative thinker. She is very much a self-starter, asks great questions, comes to the table with solutions and is incredibly dedicated to her work. I recommend Tena highly and can't wait to see where her career takes her in the future!"

- Heidi Mamer DeVastey, Vice President, Integrated Communications at Citizen

"I have never had more trust in a creative partner than I have with Tena.Tena and I co-led the Creative + UX teams working on an enterprise project for Ontario Teachers. With several teams and multiple vendors, Tena quickly established herself as someone who keeps it all together, stays on top of all the threads, and ultimately created a deep level of trust to know that things are in great hands...Tena earns my highest recommendation as someone who combines a deep creative and technical skillset with an unbreakable (happy) spirit. Run, don’t walk to hit the ‘Message’ button."

- Tony Hanyk, Creative Lead at Ontario Teacher's Pension Plan 

"Tena Tso was an exceptionally talented student of mine in the OCAD advertising program who has transitioned to one of the most talented young art director/designers I know working today. Tena is a rare, all round talent who can do it all! It's no surprise that I continually hear rave reviews from everyone I have ever referred her to."
