    Ford Motor Company - May 18 2021

  • This was a wonderful experience. Dr. Tatum is wonderful and we felt incredibly honored to bring her to our campus. The AAE team was so patient with us and the bureaucracy of our system in setting up the paperwork and payment. We have worked with other agencies, and this was a night and day difference!
