I’ve worked with Annette Dwyer for a few years at the Banana Pages in West Seattle. I sure appreciated her work ethic and knowledge of teamwork. When Annette was given a challenge, she could accomplish the task that was expected of her. Annette always had a great attitude and accepted and finished tasks asked of her.

I think Annette would be a good asset to any company. She also has a great and positive attitude when working with others.

Annette would be a great person to add to any company. I would consider her again if the option were available.
