    Anthony Casillas gave props to Michelle Graziano

    Michelle is an incredible addition to the New Jersey Division. Wow… she is all about getting it done. She was such a gift for me while I was in New Jersey for the Team AFN Impact 2018 event. When I am traveling for Team AFN I truly appreciate when my Team AFN Teammates make me feel at home where ever I am around the country. Michelle took every opportunity to make sure that I was taken care of so I “truly” appreciated that at the highest level. She obviously went “above and beyond” for the Team AFN Impact 2018 event doing all the little things that were required for “success” including spending 8 hours on the flooring in the event location. It made a huge difference….

    I am so thankful to have Michelle on the NJ Team, but I’m truly excited to have her on Team AFN.

    Awesome job!!!

    Thank you Michelle.
