"I first worked with Carolyn Parr over 20 years ago, and she has impressed me over all these years as being strong, decisive, fair, and smart, as well as having great 'people skills.'  It seems to me that these are just the qualities you want from an ADR neutral.  And, sure enough, those who have used her for ADR work tell me she is first rate."
