"It is a pleasure for me to be able to speak-in shorthand- with Michele when describing the professional nursing competencies that are important to myself and my organization: She gets it. She is consistently responsive, extremely organized and keeps a pace in a search that sees one filling a position quickly and efficiently."

- S.R., Vice President, Nursing

"Over the years I have been a client of Secord & Associates. I first began working with Michele while working at Lifespan Healthcare system and most recently with Harvard Pilgrim Healthcare. Michele has successfully helped us hire several critical roles within the organization. She is professional, timely and detail oriented and completely customer focused. Her network is extensive in the field of healthcare and leadership. She takes the time to understand the needs and environment of the organization and department. She is proactive in her communication of the process and has a passion for what she does. She is a delight to work with."

- C.R., Chief Human Resources Officer

"Michele has the unique ability to perform beyond expectations in serving both the client and the candidate. She makes a point of understanding the client organization extremely well in order to match candidates on cultural fit as well as skills. She has the skill to attract highly qualified candidates in a tight market. Her availability and knowledge provide for a positive and professional experience for both clients and candidates. I am comfortable giving her the strongest endorsement."

- K.M., Vice President, Human Resources

"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 Secord is very enthusiastic, thorough and well prepared in representing the potential position opportunity. She completes and provides an in-depth review of the position, the organization and what key elements the employer is seeking. Michele screens and prepares candidates well, advocates for them and maintains excellent communication at all times. She is unique in her ability to represent the candidate and organization while maintaining a professional caring attitude to both parties."

- M.A., President

"Much to my surprise (in this tight market) Michele produced six excellent candidates within a 4-8 week timeframe. She was at all times personable and professional and I found her to be reliable and easily accessible in not only identifying candidates, but also in reconceiving the role and sorting amongst the candidates."

- S.S., MD, Vice President, Medical Affairs

"Thank you so much for all of your efforts over these last months as I went through the interview process. You have been such a joy to work with, and such an incredible professional! I am extremely grateful for all of the time and effort you put into helping me through the process!"

- D.N., Healthcare Executive

"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 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

"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."
