    I have had the pleasure of having Rowena as not only a colleague I feel secure in referring individuals to, but as a dear friend. Rowena is the consumate professional and advocate for her clients. She is detail oriented and truly works for the best interest of her clients. I fully endorse and highly recommend Rowena in her area of expertise!
