Williams- CFA Institute "Lisa is very talented recruiter who has been able to work in a very high volume environment here. She has shown herself to be hardworking, efficient, and prompt in the time I have spent with her." S. Dudley - University of Virginia Medical Center "Lisa is a professional, efficient employee with excellent initiative and a solid customer service orientation. Lisa has made great improvements in our on-line recruiting efforts, initiating social networking. Lisa worked very diligently organizing an implementation system for new regulations from the state and her ability to interpret and operationalize policy and procedure is a great strength. Lisa embraces challenges and enjoys the opportunities to take her skills and apply them to problems outside of her everyday routines." A. Downey - Region Ten Community Services Board "Lisa is the most outstanding of the lot and has always made this part of my job easier. Lisa is professional, sharp, friendly and helpful. She has been a tremendous support to me, as I work in a satellite office from our main office. I often call her with questions and she always gives me helpful and informative answers promptly" M. Lanier - Region Ten Community Service Board "She responds to request for information in a patient and professional manner. Although the agency employs over 600 plus individuals and she receives calls from many potential employees daily, she always addresses each staff person by name and with her full attention." M. Hottinger - Region Ten Community Services Board "She is very knowledgeable and reliable. She always responds to my questions and request promptly. I find Lisa to be consistently pleasant, easy going, and willing to tackle tasks that are challenging." L. Sorenson - Region Ten Community Services Board " I enjoy walking into Lisa's office because she always greets me with a smile. She creates a welcoming environment for staff, recruits, and new hires. She respects each person she serves treating all with dignity and professionalism. Despite cutbacks in staff in the human resource department, Lisa continued to provide timely communication, quality information, and professional service." J. Sweeney - Region Ten Community Services Board "She is extremely competent, pleasant, courteous, and helpful. It should be noted that Lisa is a very quick study. After she had been here for 6 months she seemed to know more about procedures and protocol than most everyone in her department." C. Jackson - Region Ten Community Services Board "It has consistently been such a pleasure to collaborate, as she embodies that rare combination of talent, personality, and integrity. She is always able to provide helpful guidance, as she knows her program and the guidelines and restrictions so well. She also has a strong work ethic that is admirable and elicits much respect." M.
