Message from Marcia

“I view myself as a simple person doing an extraordinary job. Humble, understanding, hardworking, tolerant, loyal, high-productive, God fearing with good self-esteem, and very ambitious.
Humble enough that I will step outside of my primary duties when necessary to help out.
Being an individual with an understanding personality, I respect the viewpoints of my colleagues.
My God-fearing attribute has made me come to the realization that I have been able to achieve all that I have with the help of Christ.
