“We are a unique company. Many of us have worked here for 10-20+ years and finding a new person that will fit in with the unique culture of our team is tough. Cheryl’s recruiting abilities have allowed us to focus soley on choosing among final, qualified candidates. Having an outside resource to handle the rest- job postings, screenings, interviews, selection of candidates, salary negotiations, reference checks and offer letters- has made our recruiting process much more efficient.” Mike Frueh

Vice President Film Licensing & Distribution, SimEx-Iwerks Entertainment

“Cheryl managed an efficient and successful search for Keck Graduate Institute, which resulted in an excellent candidate joining KGI as our new Director of Human Resources. This is a critical position as we enter a period of growth in our academic programs and in the number of faculty, staff, and students on campus. Cheryl assessed our HR needs quickly and accurately, and managed all facets of the search, from preliminary discussions with senior management to negotiating the final offer to the candidate. I can recommend Cheryl without hesitation to any organization needing specialized expertise and assistance in hiring for key positions.” Robert W. Caragher

Vice President Finance & Operations, Keck Graduate Institute

“We hired Cheryl to consult with us in our two company’s, architecture and construction. She is an amazing asset to our firms; knowledgeable, kind, succinct and ethical. As one of the business owners, I work with her directly to establish policies, implement them and develop employee review practices. She attends all the employee interviews, reviews and terminations. I have learned a tremendous amount from her and continue to use her techniques. We are thrilled to have her and highly recommend her services.” Tracy Cortez

Principal, RAC Design Build/RAC Construction

“Cheryl provided assistance in an assessment of our current Human Resources Department and the current state of our policies, procedures and practices. This initial assessment set the groundwork for developing a plan to create the Human Resources Department our employees deserve. Her recruiting services were instrumental in filling critical holes in our staff, with the most important being our new Director of HR. The guidance and advice given was right on the mark.”

“Cheryl is knowledgeable and reliable. She has proven very helpful, providing expertise in areas of human resources where information is not otherwise readily available to the small business owner.” Tracy A. Stone

Principal, Tracy A. Stone Architect

“In a previous senior management position working for an electrical wholesaler, I worked closely with Cheryl for several years. During that time Cheryl held the position of HR Manager demonstrating her breadth of knowledge and ability to think outside the box while ensuring that all things HR were implemented with both the company’s and employees’ best interests in mind. So when I moved to a small, Not for Profit association and needed some assistance the obvious choice was Cheryl. She has come in and reviewed our HR policies, personnel record setup and provided much advice on compliance issues. Cheryl’s guidance on how to handle employee issues and her creative ideas on how to maintain morale and team spirit is invaluable.”
