What folks are saying

"Martha enables lasting connections and great hires thanks to her due diligence getting to know her clients and candidates equally. She's well connected, honest and committed to finding a perfect fit. She has a knack for people and identifying strengths and talents that go beyond paper, and she has a genuine spirit that makes her a pleasure to work with."  —Sara, Marketing Ops Director, 3Degrees

"Martha was instrumental in helping me transition from a print design background to digital product design; she listened and understood my strengths and ambitions, and identified a company whose needs were well matched to me. I’ve since built a successful career as a design leader working on software products with global impact, and the inflection point for this can be traced directly back to the work Martha did. It was always clear that she cares about people first, and has an innate ability to thoughtfully bring together people in a way that becomes more than the sum of their individual parts. —Jason, Principal Creative Director, Microsoft.
