"I thank you for being such an instrumental part of moving me forward and giving me the boost I needed to make a change. You truly are an expert in your field. Even though you were told that I appeared "light" with experience based on job title/salary, you didn't stop. You saw something in me, took another approach, and landed me an interview. The rest is history. You didn't give up and for that I'm grateful. I'm excited for this new journey and hope to become an integral part of the team."

- S.G., Education Consultant

"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."
