Feedback to client from Metro on final project report
Jodi has been so great to work with as she has a deep history in this business. She has taught me a lot and has been so patient with me in my learning curve as a fairly new ED. She is such an integral part of our operations and she stays so on top of our grant writing needs all throughout the year. I don't know what I would do without her!
