Patty Irving was wonderful. It was really great to have help along the way with the State of Florida board costs, BUT, when she called to check up and see how I was AFTER I graduated and received the job, that was special. I could tell she was happy I felt like she was celebrating with me. THANK YOU SO MUCH PATTY! – Stephanie Wilson
