Last July, our office door opened and in walked an effervescent stranger with a sparkle in her eye and a spring in her step. That day, Jackie M., joined our Golden Horizons family and has since proven herself a valuable member. She is a true professional and caring individual, often going above and beyond in attending to her
client’s requests. Her energetic, friendly personality puts everyone at ease. Thank you, Jackie, for your dedication and hard work. Congratulations!
