It is great to work with Sara. She’s friendly, extremely professional, and well organized. She always tries to find the (least painful) solutions for our safety procedures. I feel that she is often underappreciated but absolutely vital for us! Under all the uncertainty during COVID, she’s been wonderful to have on-site.
