Kara Anderson

"I met Kara the day before my onsite interview at the workplace. She was one of the first people I met and with whom I learned about the city and culture firsthand. She arranged for me to take an hour-long tour of the community, assisting me in navigating my way through the city and making me feel at ease and accustomed to every new place we passed. During the tour, she provided me with as much information as possible, particularly about essential services and other important factors that I might require on an daily basis, to help me feel more settled."
