“Krystyna has been working with us on revitalizing our gift shop. Her support and expertise have been invaluable to us. Our gift shop is run by our Auxiliary and volunteers and it has required her to work with many different people and help them to adjust to change and feel part of the process. She has exhibited great patience and understanding. Her assistance has had a positive impact on our bottom line and personally I have found Krystyna to be very professional, easy to work with and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend her services.”

Carol Smith – Manager Volunteer & Learning Resources
