"I had the pleasure of having Marcia manage a number of tactical & strategic projects. She brought drive & determination to everything she did to the point where I felt confident that projects she managed would be completed timely & accurately with the minimum amount of my involvement. This she would accomplish by ensuring that all stakeholders were focused on their aspect of the project as well as understanding their fit to the project as a whole. Marcia's accomplishments were such that she was eventually given responsibility for the project management office.
I very highly recommend Marcia & would not hesitate to use her services when the opportunity arises."
