Testimonials

I am an electronic notetaker. I met MaryFaith three years ago when we worked together with the same university client (last year the student successfully graduated with their degree). I’m always impressed with her professionalism, experience, and client-centred approach. It’s a pleasure working with her and delivering good results.

DYX, hearing colleague

MaryFaith is diligent and has an excellent work ethic. She brings a balance of both relevant knowledge and skills to interpreting domains and types of work she undertakes. It is always a pleasure to co-work with MaryFaith, she is very supportive, knowledgeable and professional.
