  • Laurel and Susie played an immense part in the success of this trip through IGENZ. Their guidance and attention to details such as punctuality kept the group rolling and helped everything go more smoothly than I could ever have thought. Thank you to IGENZ for the trip of a lifetime, I will hold onto these memories forever. Sydney Hickerson, WTAMU May 2019
