“I have hired Sara numerous times and have also had the opportunity to work with her in the community and see her work on other projects. When it comes to creativity, expertise, and skill, there is no other person I would recommend. Sara has the ability to work across cultures and incredibly high quality of work. I would highly recommend her services.”
