While working with the family members of [my] client I was very impressed with how prompt Jessa was and her ability to get things done quickly. I truly feel like Jessa was trying to take many of the burdens off of this family and take the complications out of their very complicated situation. I appreciate someone who is good at what they do but I only recommend people that go above and beyond for the people they work with. Jessa has gone above and beyond my expectations and I would highly recommend her to help your family or business.
