Danna worked for me for nine years while I was Director of Communications for Children At Heart Ministries, until I retired in December, 2015. I considered her to be a dedicated employee with outstanding design skills. She was responsible for meeting graphics needs of five very demanding ministries. She did so with grace, good humor, and expertise. I would not hesitate to give her my strongest personal and professional recommendation.
