Heather is has that rare talent of digging deep and finding out what is truly important to both her clients and her candidates. This ability makes her an execptional recruiter and partner to those she works with. Finding exceptional talent is what makes an extraordinary recruiter and Heather is exactly that...extraordinary. While working together she was the most successful recruiter in our entire organization. Her success came from her determination to go beyond and find the hard to locate folks that helped her customers reach their goals. I HIGHLY reccommend Heather!

Heather is truly one of the most talented individuals I have had the pleasure of working with. Heather is a master at networking and connecting with people throughout the Bay Area. She is driven, focued and a very strong recruiter. She takes the time to really understand a persons goals and expectations -this is the case for both the candidates she is working with as well as the client companies. I value the partnership I have with Heather and look forward to working with her for years to come

Heather and I worked together at Volt Services Group as direct peers her focus was on the corporate side of business recruiting and mine at the time on the technology side. Though we were based out of different offices we had the chance to work regularly with one another. Through Heather's efforts we ended up sharing quite a few of the same corporate clients in the Scotts Valley and Santa Cruz area. Heather is a quality person who is liked and respected by her co-workers, peers, managers, and clients, both candidates and hiring managers alike. She is truly a pleasure to work with and someone who produces excellent candidates and assists in matching them with top notch employers

“Working with Heather was a pleasure! She is detailed-oriented, able to multi task, a fantastic communicator, and a visionary with the ability to not only envision the ideas but also to implement the idea. I highly recommend her to anyone and would work with her again!”

Lindsay Swanton

Heather is by far one of the hardest working, most dedicated professionals I know. Having both worked directly with her, and having been a client of hers, the common denominators remain the same. I will always feel confidence and complete trust in any thing she brings before me, and I truly would walk into fire if she thought that was the best move for my career
