"I have known Tabetha for a number of years and have always been very impressed by her work, both during the period she worked at 2Wire, and most recently while working directly with me. Her professionalism and business executive experience are among the best I have seen, and are further enhanced by her creativity, focus, drive, and market sense; she is able to identify and bring to closure a broad range of corporate legal and business issues and has an impressive knowledge of the business of establishing and operating a company. Tabetha has consistently proven to be an outstanding GC with excellent tactical and strategic skills, and has made invaluable contributions to our start-up’s vision, product and business direction. The overall quality of Tabetha’s work is simply outstanding."
