Yvonne’s presentation skills are excellent and her ability to recognize situations or opportunities to engage people on an issue is excellent. She has a strong insight in reading people and their issues. One thing I really appreciated

about how she handled herself in front of our group was how humble she was at times in relating to her past and how she learned from various personal events or situations. We will work together with Yvonne again.
