Brenda was instrumental in assisting me with the development of organizational and human resource policy and procedure. “

As the new President of a private equity acquired business with close to a hundred employees, Brenda was instrumental in assisting me with the development of organizational and human resource policy and procedure. Most importantly, she was key to the design and implementation of an employee performance assessment program where none had previously existed. Her depth of knowledge in this area was invaluable. Without which it might have taken years to develop and implement where it literally took only months. She is a joy to work with because she values people, honesty and relationships. Her knowledge in this area is second to none and I would strongly recommend her as a business partner, mentor and friend.

She can see the value in others and the vision of the futuristic big picture. I have worked with Brenda on several projects and admire her dedication to her team and her customers. She values the education and development of her team. She is a functional leader that knows how to adapt to any situation.
