I would definitely recommend Sara!

Thomas I., Marketing Director, Vendor
Sara is one of best people I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She is the epitome of, and has that rare and hard to find combination of “Passion and Drive” meets “Talent and Know How”. She worked and achieved her great successes working very independently, without a lot of oversight. To Sara – “Good is the enemy of great” that even with her great number of “victories” – she was tireless in her efforts to always try to improve her areas of responsibility, always looking for ways to improve results – people – processes – everything. In summary: Talent + Passion and Drive + Results Oriented and Achiever = The best I ever saw at what she does !
