Marie was a wonderful addition to our farm! Very easy to communicate with and took on every job with easy and enthusiasm! From fencing to feeding animals and painting walls… every job was greeted with glee and completed with care! I would have no hesitation in recommending her to any other property. Marie is polite, respectful and happy to fit into any situation. We wish her the best for the rest of her travels and would gladly accept her back!
