Brigitte worked at our retreat centre for 3 months in 2015. During this time, she was a standout team member and quickly went from a volunteer role to managing our office when I was at home sick. In my years of managing this centre, I have rarely seen someone as professional, driven and committed to delivering excellence, daily and beyond the call of duty. I can wholeheartedly recommend Brigitte - her high integrity is reflected in all her work, and as a bonus, she is a real delight to work with
