Kara is a wealth of human resources knowledge! She performed an HR Audit for National Co+op Grocers and exceeded our expectations. I appreciated her understanding of and common sense approach to working with a 1-person HR office. She communicated very well and was extremely prompt in our interactions. I highly recommend Kara to prospective clients as an individual who will always maintain a high level of professionalism and integrity. It has been a pleasure to work with her and hope to contract her for future projects.
