I have known Kathy Palokoff for many years and have always admired her commitment to quality, her tenacity in getting a job done right and her perspectives on customer service from both sides of the equation - understanding what the customer needs and wants, and helping clients serve those customers more effectively, efficiently and energetically. Her business sense is on-target, and her involvement in community organizations is equally impressive.

The people at the CVS on N. Winton are very helpful; much preferable to dealing with the mail-order "service" of CVS. Someone might want to update the Google street view with a photo of the actual store, now that it's been completed and open for service for quite awhile!
