Mary Guardino, Founder of "Freedom from Fear" Freedom-from-Fear

To whom it may concern:

This letter is a professional and employment reference for Felicitas Kort, an esteemed and well published clinical psychologist from Caracas who is moving to New York City to work with our organization in the special area of anxiety and depressive illnesses.

I have known Ms. Kort for 15 years and was personally and professionally delighted when she took the bold step to relocate to New York and affiliate with Freedom From Fear on an expanded basis.  Ms. Kort has applied for an H 1 visa, which she expects to be granted within weeks and for which we have guaranteed that Ms. Kort will work 20 hours a week at an hourly rate of $30.  It is likely she will work more hours, but 20 in the minimum.  

We look forward to working with her on a permanent part time basis.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call me at 718-351-1717, extension 20.
