"Michele runs a first class boutique executive recruiting company, that is now officially the preferred firm of several health plans and health systems. Michele is very thorough, insightful and leverages her extensive clinical background in evaluating and couching candidates. She and her staff are incredibly helpful and always able to answer all questions substantively and promptly. Michele studies all aspects of an Organization, from structure to culture, and she is therefore able to enthusiastically educate candidates about the Organization and its people by offering details and insights. Michele immerses herself also in the candidate background, and very quickly understands whether the candidate's needs, expertise, skills and work history fit a certain Organization and position. If there is a fit, Michele makes it happen. In summary, Michele and her staff are highly efficient, professional and details oriented and Michele is personally caring and always concerned about the candidate. I highly recommend Michele to any health care professional seeking a new position in the current difficult job market."

She is a true professional who is extremely efficient, organized and thorough. As a client and a candidate Michele keeps you informed, and the recruitment process moving smoothly and in a timely manner. I would highly recommend Michele's Secord and Associates as a healthcare executive search firm."

"Michele is extremely thorough and impressed me with how well she understood the position I was applying for. Her insightful questions helped me to articulate the contributions I made in the positions I held, which enabled me to present myself as a strong candidate. Michele managed the recruitment process at a fast pace, keeping me well informed along the way. She obtains an in depth understanding of each position as well as the organization's culture and environment. She is dedicated to identifying candidates who are not only qualified but who will be successful in the organization as well."

- E.P., Department Administrator, Urology

"I had the privilege to work with Michele during my hiring at Gaylord Hospital. My experience was nothing but positive! Michele is an excellent communicator and collaborates extremely well with all of the parties involved in the recruitment and hiring process. I found her to be very organized and efficient. My time was well planned and I was well informed. Her work in part led to a very successful hiring process for me! I would be happy to recommend Michele and Secord & Associates to any organization."

- D.L., Administrative Director, Outpatient Services

"Michele seems to know me better than I know myself! When faced with having to decide between several outstanding opportunities, Michele was there to listen and help me stay focused. She helped me get through sorting all of the pros and cons of each option, offering sound advice and feedback as needed. Some of my good friends are those I met after we were mutually placed in our former positions by Michele. She truly does select the best; I have the utmost respect and admiration for her incredible talents."

- A.M., Hospital Services Manager

"Recently I have had the need to retain Secord & Associates, Inc. for four very specific searches of which we were presented with candidates in a timely manner who had been thoroughly screened and absolutely qualified. Michele understands what many recruiters fail to learn: a client's time and needs are the most important part of the process."

- R.J., Former Recruiter

"As a candidate I felt very prepared for the entire interview and hiring process. In my case this took place over a period of 3 months. I have never applied for a job for which I knew so much detail ahead of time. The preparation phase that Michele initiated ensured that I understood the responsibilities, time commitment, reporting structure, key stakeholders and exact expectations of the job. This assured that I went into the job with complete knowledge, no surprises, and I believe helped me to be successful in the role. Having this information up font also helped me to decide if this truly was the role for me."

- L.S., Executive Director

"I'm glad to have this opportunity to let you know how fortunate I feel to have Pam and Yvonne. They are both great and I enjoy having them on my team. I have Secord & Associates, Inc. to thank for this!"

- S.A., Vice President, Patient Care Services
