  • When clients work with me, they always say/remark: That I have an ability to learn new concepts quickly and distill them down to easier to understand information helps comprehension of complicated topics.

  • Interesting fact or tidbit about yourself: I keep bees at home and have had mixed success in making mead from their honey. 

  • Favorite quote: “Quality means doing it right when no one is looking.” - Henry Ford
