I have worked with Alison for almost 10 years. The medical practice I managed had been experiencing high turnover. I needed help with the hiring process and once Alison came on board, she was able to improve our hiring process and reduce the high turnover rate. Due to her success with the hiring process, we asked her to assist with all HR functions in the office. She put together a comprehensive policy guide, a new hire orientation, and created an employee handbook. Alison developed a consistent performance appraisal and discipline process to ensure all employees were being treated the same. If I ever had a question or there was an issue with an employee, Alison was just a phone call away. I never had to worry about changes in laws or regulations as I knew Alison would make sure we were compliant and would update our policies and procedures. She was vital to making my job easier and she was a valued member of our team! When the office decided to expand our business, her Marketing, Public Relations and Communications background provided us with strategies to ensure we were on the path to success. Her insight and guidance were exactly what we needed. She is absolutely amazing and can't recommend her enough!

Alison came into my business initially to help with new employee hiring. We were experiencing some staff turnover and it was difficult to find the time to properly evaluate candidates. She was able to come in and provide that assistance for us, thereby reducing the turnover rate and improving our employee relations. She was then able to step in and assist in other ways, particularly with establishing policies and ensuring we were always up to date with changes in the rules and regulations. Should an issue or question arise, we were always able to reach her. Alison provided guidance and insight and would spend the time to research and evaluate a situation to ensure it was handled properly. As my business grew and expanded into a new market, Alison was there to help. With a background in marketing, communications and HR, she was able to guide us during our growth and was an invaluable asset. Her presence in and out of the office provided me with peace of mind that my business was always on the path to success. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing assistance in HR, and more!
