Words from Krista's Clients & Former Students


Reviews from Rate My Professors

"She connects with the students on a personal level and changes her teaching style to suit the student. She is a great speaker and is able to use the lessons in real life situations. Every student that took her classes would recommend taking another one of her classes. I took about five of her classes including capstone."


"She has passion for marketing and advertising! I had no idea what I wanted my career field to be and she inspired me to go into marketing. She knows the ins and outs of the profession. She always brought an interesting take on ads and taught us so many real life lessons."


"Principle of marketing was such a fun course with Mrs. Fabrick! She challenged us to be outside of the norm, and only expected our very best!"



Recommendations from LinkedIn:


"We hired Krista to help us implement our social media presence

and kick-start a new product launch campaign. She is an expert

in her field and a consummate professional. Plus she is a delight

to work with!"






"I enthusiastically concur with all the positive things said about Krista by

others on this page. Krista has been instrumental over the past several years

in building the autopom! brand, increasing website visits, leads and ultimately,

sales. She has been a reliable and consistent resource for her creative ideas,

energy, digital marketing knowledge and talent. Krista really delivers and she

is a joy to work with too! I recommend Krista."


"Krista not only opened my eyes to the world of entrepreneurial marketing, social media marketing, and marketing in general. The way she taught the material allowed me to learn and digest the information in a way that was exciting and informative. I looked forward to what I could learn next in her classes. One of the biggest take away's from attending her classes was believe in yourself and believe in your ideas, goals, visions etc. That networking and connecting with others is important for those that believe they can build a business or market themselves in general. Krista would be an amazing addition to any school and brings a unique approach to teaching. I appreciate the time I got to learn from professor Fabrick!"


" Krista Fabrick was an amazing professor. I had her for several marketing classes over a three year time period. But more than Krista was a mentor. She introduced me to the passion I have for business and marketing. Krista helped me land my first position in marketing, I was an intern at her company Illuminate Marketing. I cannot say enough wonderful things about her. She is a professional, she is caring and she is passionate. Krista has always wanted nothing less than greatness for every student. She was able to help me see my potential and pushed me to go after my goal to be in the marketing profession."
