"I am a new CEO of a non-profit and whenever I feel uncertain about a contract that I receive, I sent it to Rayna for review. She schedules time to not only discuss potential red flags and areas of concern but also provides/ask necessary questions to fill in the gap and make sure that what is written is an accurate record of the discussion."
