"Working with Barbara Bray is like working with an angel of the pacific -- her knowledge and talents and generosity exceed anyone I've ever worked with for over two decades in the field of education, especially educational technology. Working within the framework of the Universal Builder helps you to clarify your thoughts and make your project clearer and more appealing, and then, once Barbara steps in and does her magic, your creation goes beyond what you could have ever imagined it to be. I am so grateful and honored to have connected with such talent!"
