Client Praise

As a small business, we survived many years without an employee handbook. However, I realized it was essential to our business after dealing with insurance and workers compensation. I hired Kara to put together our employee handbook. She was extremely knowledgeable in what we needed to include in our handbook, laws in our city and state, and was also extremely efficient in the process. She was affordable and provided incredible value, and I will continue to work with her in the future for all of our HR needs.
— Jim Long, President | Long's Auto Place
I have so much respect for Kara. It is evident she is very experienced as she is extremely knowledgeable about all facets of HR. Specifically, Kara vetted recruiting agencies and coached me in the hiring process of senior-level executives. Kara’s communication skills and understanding of the players involved streamlined the process immensely. As a result of following Kara’s process and coaching, we hired two fantastic members to our executive team. I look forward to working with her in the future as we hire additional key personnel.
