Izdihar: What do your clients say are the best thing about working with you?
Sara: I can tend to be spontaneous, I’m not a strict timeline vacation person. If we go on a trip and I see something random on the side of the road I will stop and look at it. I can make friends anywhere and with anyone. The joke is that “I’ve never met a stranger”
