what clients are saying

CEO, Coaching and Business Success Firm

"Katie is a rockstar! I've had the pleasure to work with Katie on a number of different levels and every time she has exceeded all of my expectations and delivered at the highest level of integrity. You'd be crazy not to have her on your team and I'd recommend her to anyone looking to build their business."

Finance and Operations Manager, Construction Company

"I have had the pleasure of working with Katie on a couple occasions over the past few years. She took the time to get to know me both personally and professionally in order to understand what I was looking for career-wise, and found companies that shared similar values. She was paramount in helping me join the company I am with today, and I could not be happier. Katie is a wealth of knowledge and I would encourage anyone looking to better themselves professionally to reach out and ask for some advice."

Chief Operating Officer, Land Development Company

"I have known and worked with Katie for nearly eight years, and when it comes to competent, professional, and knowledgeable financial services and recruitment, Katie is the poster child. She keeps a sharp focus on the issue at hand while maintaining a cheerful and friendly attitude. I know that if Katie is involved in any project, it will be done professionally, accurately, and efficiently."

Human Resources Professional, Service Company

"Katie embodies the definition of a Hiring Consulting Advisor. She takes the time to understand businesses and their hiring needs. Katie's easy-going "yes, if" communication style allows her to forge strong relationships with business leaders, candidates, and her team. Katie also asks the hard questions."

Executive Director, Non Profit Organization

"I have received great praise from all of my staff who have worked with Katie."

Auctioneer and Professional Speaker

"I recently witnessed Katie give a "ted talk" . She kept the audience engaged and consistently "wanting more." Her charm and wit is something I admire. This is the second talk I've seen her give now and the steady constant is when she speaks people listen. I would highly recommend Katie for your event."
