“I just wanted to let you know how happy we are at the CAVEWAS BOD (and especially Mary and I), with our assigned team at Megram.
We absolutely love working with Jenna, who has settled in well with our business. I find her to be smart, intuitive, and very well organized.
We are blessed to be working with her and Lauren (financials). They both respond to any inquiries we have – with the speed of light!
Lauren is able to explain things in a down to earth manner, leaving no questions from me or the treasurer.”
“I do want to thank you (Kayla Wright), for all of your work with us… we have really enjoyed having you back this year – there were many comments from Board and committee members in my discussions that folks feel like you are on top of things, helpful in organizing our work etc. so THANKS for that.”
