"Stormy helped me when I needed her most. My previous employer had recently gone through a Reduction in Force where 80% of my group was laid off. I had been searching for a new position for nearly a month when I saw Stormy post a position that seemed like it would be a good fit for me. So I reached out to her.

Stormy was fantastic. She was very knowledgeable about the company and position she was recruiting for and she was in direct contact with the hiring manager and owner of the company. She quickly determined that my experience might not have been directly in line with the hiring company due to a difference in industry but that my experience overall still fit pretty well with what they were looking for.

She got me in for an interview right away and guided me through each step of the interviewing process. She prepped me for each interview with questions and highlighted topics that would be good for review. In the end Stormy was a major factor for me getting hired at my current employer. I'm very happy with how everything worked out and also appreciate the great effort Stormy went through to help me get this job.

Thank you Stormy, I highly recommend you to any and all looking for a new position. They would be lucky to have you represent them."
