Testimonial

Katie did an amazing job of first identifying what I truly wanted as a next step in my career and then nudged me in the right direction (even when I wasn’t sure it was the right spot!) into a position I’m really excited about.

On top of this, Katie was very responsive throughout the entire process from start to finish (even checking in on me during my resignation week and long after I would consider typical from a recruiter); professional but also personable - exactly the kind of person I like working with. 

I would absolutely recommend anyone to reach out for a chat with Katie if you’re looking for a next step.
