About Us

Integrity. Service. Accountability. Discretion.

These core values define the way we conduct our business and make us a trusted partner to candidates, clients and colleagues across the Pacific Northwest.  We do what we say we’re going to do and take responsibility for our actions. We believe that our success is built by serving the priorities of our clients and candidates first. We are trusted custodians of your private information whether you are a passive (employed) candidate or a hiring manager conducting a confidential search.  We are a team of professionals driven by a simple mission to do good work!

Woman Owned, Woman Led.
