Loved your attitude on the interview you placed on the web, good on you Amanda!

Spoke with your sister Jackie today via the 4 networking group here in Richmond north yorkshire and she told me about your well deserved career so had to look you up on the net. Well done to you Amanda again I take my hat off to you!
