"Working with Sylvia was one of the best experiences I have had on my journey of becoming AASECT certified. She was organized, reliable, and open to helping at all times. Additionally, she has immense knowledge in the field, which makes her an excellent choice as a supervisor. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a supervisor."
