Dr Valerio's performance was nothing short of spectacular. Her playing was outstanding, she was on time, completely self-contained and responsive to all requests. Her performance was held in a memory care assisted living facility and she completely rolled with the punches as some residents were restive. Moreover, Dr. Valerio is a charming and approachable woman. I hope to have another opportunity to hire her. I just can't say enough good things about her. Thank you Dr. Valerio and Gigmasters for the very easy arrangements. You made my mother's birthday special for all of us.
