"I had the pleasure of working with Gwenn for a year and a half at a fast-growing start-up. She supported me for all the complex legal work that needed to be done to support an organization that was just beginning to engage with the Federal government. I've been selling to the government for 30 years; in that time I've worked with many attorneys. Gwenn distinguished herself by how quickly she executed our work, her ability to negotiate language and find the key areas to focus, and her willingness to work long pass normal hours to get a task done. Gwenn was twice awarded the "Most Valuable Player" quarterly award for our region, which I've never seen before in a sales organization."

"I've had the opportunity to work with Gwenn for close to 2 years. In those 2 years, I've gained so much respect and admiration for her talents and her personally. She is extremely passionate about what she does and ALWAYS puts the health of the business at the forefront of anything she does. I've been in many contract negotiations with her and had the opportunity to observe how she works in stressful situations. She isn't willing to backdown when it come to something she knows is right. She isn't intimidated by a group of executives sitting across the table from her. She is thoughtful, passionate and a wonderful person. I hope in my lifetime that I get the opportunity to work with Gwenn again. Any company would be lucky to have her on their team."
