Why did you decide to specialize in serving government/nonprofit clients?
“Honestly, I didn’t specifically choose it. It was a gradual evolution based upon my location, skill set and office client base and needs. I am very happy that it worked out this way and that I am able to specialize and work within such a diverse and interesting industry.”
