"For the past year I have had the absolute pleasure of working with Sarah and of seeing her in action. She handles each and every one of our events and it is purely because of her professionalism that we know we have nothing to worry about – every event is more than we expected. If you are planning or thinking of planning an event then before anyone else you call Sarah."

"I also wanted to let you know that you have made a huge impact in everyone in this office- the reps and everyone. They all LOVED you!! everyone was saying how charismatic, funny, and intelligent you are. Really, you know I don't do flattery. I heard it from several people and overheard reps on stairways...You just have that gift, that light, or aura around you that makes people instantly accept you and relate to you."
