It is my great pleasure to write this letter of recommendation for Jackie. I have had the pleasure of working with Jackie during our busiest time last year, and I can state with confidence that Jackie met all the requirements for delivering 100+ product descriptions for Seedling.com. As such, I expect that she will be a very positive addition to your business.
