Symantha managed and coordinated Halo Waypoint’s vast Universe (Encyclopedia) content and schedule for HaloWaypoint.com. When the new website shipped in 2014, it was a combined effort with Content, Franchise, Localization, and Design to ship over ~150 entries.
In addition to scheduling and coordination, Symantha implemented many of the CMS entries. Her awareness of dependencies aided all teams and helped drive scheduled ship dates. Symantha’s willingness to learn the CMS and provide CMS functionality feedback was a boon to content production, improved the CMS product as a whole, and, as a result, streamlined the entire process at launch and throughout continued sustain cycles for 1.5 years.
Symantha drove a complicated product to completion. Furthermore, her organization aided my team to consistently deliver content within deadlines. Thank you, Symantha. Halo Waypoint would not be what it is without your dedication to the product and content.
For the past 2 years, Symantha has been working on the In Your Write Mind Workshop committee as the communications and social media chair. As the treasurer and fundraising chair, Sy has helped me get word out about donations and generate excitement for fundraising activities. She has been instrumental in keeping our attendees up-to-date and engaged throughout the year. She’s an amazing part of the team and I could not imagine the committee without her and the contribution of all her hard work.
Symantha is a great collaborator and has been such a valuable part of the Halo Channel team at 343 Industries. Symantha is highly adaptable, intelligent, and works hard for what the team needs even if it is not part of her job description.
Symantha not only contributed to the success of various products and services at 343, but also enriched the team immensely with her humor and positive attitude. Symantha did fantastic work as an associate writer and as a web producer on my team – I highly recommend her for any and all production related roles going forward.
Symantha is a productive, talented fiction writer who responds well to criticism and always strives to improve her craft. She was a pleasure to work with.
I am happy to write up a recommendation for web producer Symantha Reagor. Symantha managed the production details for Halo Waypoint’s ‘Universe’ section which was a new and growing section of the Halo website. I appreciate that Symantha is organized and thoughtful in her work and she tracks new articles, ties to upcoming web and channel content, as well as running changes with precision.
She has been a great partner to the Franchise team in working with our various writers for new pieces of fiction and keeping everyone on target to meet the site’s deadlines. She also has eagle eyes for catching mistakes and her attention to detail has allowed us to make fixes before something goes public – which saves major headaches and helps to build community trust.
Thanks for all your help Symantha!
