Operating Room


“I worked with Kara in a couple of key searches for our company. She was very diligent, capture the essence of the position and identify suitable candidates providing summarized information. She expeditiously arrange interviews and feedback sessions, which allowed us to narrow down the search until identified the right person for the role. Throughout the process, Kara was highly engaged, proactive and kept me informed of the progress. She is a talented professional and a very kind person to work with, for which I am happy to recommend her.”
