Gay Anne is a superior individual and worker. We worked together at the United States Soccer Federation during a period of rapid growth. As the CEO of the enterprise, I had first hand knowledge of Gay Anne's work. Her ebullient personality, her dedication to seeing a task to conclusion, her intellect insured that our growing membership was well served. Gay Anne was a most valuable member of our staff, a real self started, with creative solutions to difficult situations. She is a gem!”

Hank S., CEO & Secretary General, U.S. Soccer Federation

My husband and I had a renewal for our 19th wedding anniversary, I was told about Gay and decided to give it a go. I am VERY happy with all the work and effort she put forth, I truly do not think I could of done this without her. I had the wedding (renewal) in Illinois, I am located in Ohio, still the communication and professionalism was over the top. She is very personable, puts you at ease, and let me say, I have never seen any woman work their tail off like she did. I HIGHLY recommend Gay, I can't imagine anyone else "taking over" during this special and stressful time.
