Jane radiates a sense of calm that makes her a pleasure to be around. She goes about her work with a great deal of professionalism and dedication. I have had the pleasure of working with her on a couple of occasions, and I can’t wait until the next opportunity comes up. If you have a chance to work with Jane, grab it.
