Tara G.

"Our OI Resource has been great to work with.  Through my interactions with her, she seems very knowledgeable in her area and able to answer any of my questions.  If we do come across something she doesn’t know off hand, she does a great job of doing the research or asking others at OI, and then getting back to me quickly with a thorough response.  She’s also always available if we need to schedule a call or meeting."
