"We hired Donna to come train and consult our web team in the College of
Public Programs. Our group is very diverse, including exprienced
graphical designers, web programmers, and inexperienced office workers
who were tasked with keeping web content updated. Donna was great and
tackling and solving problems, finding solutions and making
recommendations. Her experience and connections with the plone
community were invaluable to us in helping our diverse user group
better manage their various plone sites."
