I especially value her flexibility in planning around my hectic schedule as well as patience within our processes.

"Brenda was absolutely fantastic to work with and is very attentive to client and hospital. Her follow up is great as it shows she truly cares."

"Brenda is the perfect example of what I would have expected and she actually exceeded my expectations. She was always friendly and positive displayed a "can do" attitude. She returned calls promptly, kept me updated and would call just to check on how things were going. She prepared me well with good advice for interviewing all of which I used. After 16 years of not really looking for a job she was supportive and helpful. I would recommend her as a trainer for others that work in your organization. Thank you Brenda for all your help."

"Brenda- was hands down the reason I am in this job currently. I was looking in other regions and not super interested in St. Louis. Brenda was diligent with me and straight-forward in her presentation of the opportunity. This persistence and honesty directly led to my visit to St. Louis and accepting this position. I could not have made a better decision, and I have her to thank for it!!!"
