"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."

"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."
