It was an absolute pleasure to work with Andaleep! She was a wealth of information and was able to take my vision and bring it to life. There is absolutely no way I could have completed this project without her. She was professional and warm at the same time, making it easy to form a productive partnership. Our volunteer program is strengthened because what we were able to accomplish.
