Emma Jane worked with me on a dramatically ambitious Drupal project a couple of years ago. She managed to keep my overactive imagination in check so we focused on realistic goals and milestones, all the while making me feel like I could get my hands dirty in the project. She was timely, proficient, and a joy to work with.
