"Chela is an absolute joy to work with for many reasons. In her role as publishing project manager, she is well-organized, thoughtful, and pays attention to details. She’s also an excellent communicator and writer. Perhaps most importantly, she has tremendous integrity. If she says she’ll do something, I know it’s as good as done. It gives me great peace of mind knowing that Chela is on top of our projects and keeping clients happy. I highly recommend working with her!"
