  • WayneWayneVice President - Finance

    I wanted to take the time out to let you know that the service you offer and the personality behind it is amazing. I have dealt with many placement firms, on both sides of the fence, for almost 20 years now and your professionalism and kindness is unmatched. You made the whole process very comfortable and was able to find out who I was, and not someone that wanted to give all the correct answers. To me, in your industry, that's an amazing skill.

  • KimKimCoaching Client

    Terri was recommended to me by a trusted mentor when I was seeking to update my CV. From the first discovery session, I quickly realized this was an opportunity to refresh much more than my resume. Working with Terri on a monthly basis, I have gained a greater understanding of my strengths and my self-limiting beliefs. She has provided me with concrete exercises, knowledge and tools that I can put in to place immediately to strengthen my own relationship with "work" and the teams and organizations I work. Terri has profoundly impacted my career path and those around me. I can certainly see why my mentor recommended her to me and I am eternally grateful for her guidance at a critical time in my career.
