CO-OP RECOMMENDATION STATEMENTS Abercrombie & Fitch “Chelsey has been a pleasure to work with! She worked extremely hard and played a critical role during our busiest seasons (BTS/ XMAS 13) in female outerwear. Chelsey was dedicated solely to our team. She helped to write fit comments, prepped fit samples, and attended fittings. She quickly learned how to use all our computer systems (PLM, Web PDM, Gerber Accumark/PDS).” “Throughout the day, Chelsey managed her time well and made sure to always prioritize workload in order of urgency. She is a self starter, and always came to her team members to ask for more work when completing a task.” “Not only is Chelsey a hard worker, she also has a very positive attitude and is a team player. She was extremely reliable, and her laid back approach made her a relaxing person to work with. I am very proud of the skills she has acquired and all she has accomplished in helping contribute to our team. I am happy to have had the opportunity to work with her.” Kristy Whitehouse - Supervisor of Lendrell Martin (Chelsey’s Direct Supervisor)
