Tim Deshaies, Treasurer, The Therapeutic Equestrian Center

My name is Tim Deshaies and I’m the treasurer for The Therapeutic Equestrian Center, a nonprofit organization in the pioneer valley dedicated  to providing therapeutic horseback riding to people with disabilities.

In 2013, I was interested in having professional photographs taken of our horses, grounds, staff and volunteers.  Our executive director, Judy Zedonis referred me to Jill Apolinario because she had volunteered at the equestrian center in the past.  I contacted Jill and she agreed to help me with my photographic project.  I was immediately impressed with Jill’s enthusiasm and willingness to work with me!  The photographs she took were wonderful and now appear on our website’s main page and galleries (www.equestriantherapy.org)!  Jill also photographed our major fundraising live and silent auction event in May, 2014 called “The Future Begins Here” and the pictures were equally wonderful!

As I got to know Jill better, I found that she also offered website design services and we partnered with Jill to develop our new Future Begins Here website (www.futurebeginshere.org)!  During the design process, I found Jill to be an amazing resource in terms of the guidance she provided me, the responsiveness she displayed to my many questions, the patience and flexibility she demonstrated as we “fine-tuned” the site and, maybe most importantly, her good natured approach to working with people.  The result was a website and design process that exceeded my expectations!  I enthusiastically recommend Jill Apolinario for your photographic or web design projects!  You will be impressed and pleased with your decision!
