As a parent, educator and president of a recruitment firm I have had the privilege and pleasure of watching Melissa grow into a lovely and talented young lady. More than just book smart she is authentically polite and is gaining great poise; all of which will only promote her academic and professional journeys. Something to look forward to, and bank on, will be Melissa's future wonderful accomplishments. Deborah Gelberg, President DNG Placement Services, Inc.
