Knowledgeable, Professional, Competent and Easy to Work With
Ms Ward has handled numerous FCC applications and request for me. I’ve always found her to be extremely knowledgeable and competent in her particular field. Carrie is also well regarded and has many personal contacts and friends within the Portals. I’ve found that, on occasion, Carrie has been able to resolve FCC related issues or questions for me with just a quick call to the right person at the Commission.
