“We started working with Denina nearly 10 years ago on one project, but have continued year after year because of the quality of her work and passion for what she does. She is committed to our community and has put in the time and effort to learn about key stakeholders and how we do things here. Denina takes the time to form relationships, so it does not feel like an outsider coming in. We always have peace of mind when we give her a project that she will give it 100%, and the end product will be what we want…that is why we recommend her to others.”
