“I have had several very productive conversations with Ayanna. I am a person with lots of questions. I have never stumped Ayanna - from simple inquiries about Auxilia’s business to asking for marketing wisdom. An example was asking about how to communicate with supporters in ways that make it okay for a potential donor to stay in touch while waiting for a future time to make a donation.”
