I was so impressed with Susanna and the fact she jumped straight in to the job after our initial conversation – even to the point of responding late at night to ensure my client contract could be expedited. I felt completely comfortable discussing the circumstances of my business and needs, and I will be coming back to her for assistance in creating a new company contract very shortly.
