“I cannot emphasize enough how much I admire and enthusiastically recommend Elizabeth Fernandez at both personal and professional levels. Her attention to detail is stunning..."

Susan Grossman Nieves
Director, Dalton After School Program

“I have seen Elizabeth’s work with children and I have been impressed and in awe of her skills. She possesses a special and sincere rapport with them that is rare in a person so young. She has the heart of a child and a trusted role model.”
