Brien’s quiet confidences gives assurance that he’ll see a design through to a strong finish, and I know that Rebecca will gain the confidence of our school leaders with her knowledge and affinity for creative solutions. These are great, complementary character traits and skills that will benefit all our educational clients and strengthen our team internally.”
