The SMJ staff takes the stage!

With the trifecta of years in masterful experience, a loving nature, and personality that both leads and never loses touch with youth, Sarah Jakubowski is a one in a million find. I don’t say this often, but if I had children, she would be on a very short list of mentors I would send my kids to.
