WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ASPECT OF
We go above and beyond to make sure our
clients' expectations are not only met but exceeded
in every way. Our favorite aspect is taking clients on
complimentary site inspections. Not only do they
get to travel in style, but our clients feel as if they
are a part of a seamless, reliable process - not just
an online agency with a call center.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO WHEN
YOU'RE NOT AT WORK?
I love animals. I am an owner of a West Highland
Terrier, Winnie, who is the joy of my life. On the
weekend, Winnie and I enjoy taking nice walks and
sharing an ice cream on a hot summer day.
