What is one word or phrase that describes this person as an RCB: Dedicated

Tell us a bit about what you appreciate about them as an RCB:

Jayn and her husband site prepped, installed, and completed all finishing work, including fencing, at our Baker City Head Start Playground. She did this because it needed to be done. EOUHS did not ask her to do this work, she knew the kids deserved it. I remember speaking to her about this project and the difficulty I was having securing a contractor and she told me, “I’ll take care of it”. I aspire to be as selfless as Jayn and her husband Ron.
