She really makes a habit of remembering the names and the business of her students and makes a point to address them when she makes a point that would be relevant to what they’re trying to accomplish. Social media is challenging becuase it “feels” new. I understand it but struggle with finding the most effective usage. Romona has not only helped me over that hurdle, but has caused me to have a new respect for the things that can be accomplished.
