  2. Jennifer is extremely on point with her contributions to opportunities. As a member of the sales organization of our company, she always has fantastic and articulate negotiation ideas when we are working with customers. She also takes the time to help out at the ground level when needed. She’s made personal phone calls to customers to help them through the buying process when I was unavailable which is above and beyond in her role.
