Recommendation

 

"Robyn worked with me as part of the business team at the Apple Store, Palo Alto. She was a pleasure to work with. Robyn had the special knack of engaging a customer and making them understand she had their best interests and needs at heart. She was particularly helpful with our SMB business clients. I knew I could count on Robyn to do what ever needed to be done without guidance. She worked with a sense of focus and purpose. Robyn was respected by her peers, was known for her knowledge of design and was a team player. I would work with her again in a heartbeat!" -Bob Weder
