I have worked with Sheila at several points during my legal career, and have had the pleasure of speaking on several panels with her. I have always found Sheila to be a highly effective professional (as well as a delightful person of great integrity) and would recommend her to anyone seeking to make a career-related decision or change. While she is particularly knowledgeable about issues facing attorneys, her skills would benefit any professional.

Throughout my job search, I came across a number of moments where my limited networking experience left me wondering specifically how to proceed. Sheila took the guesswork out of the process by providing me with the information I needed to make the most efficient and effective use of my time. I was particularly appreciative of the fact that Sheila was available to advise me every time I needed her assistance and really seemed to go out of her way to make herself available.

When my “job quest“ began, I was quite simply clueless. Thanks to Sheila, I felt that I had the upper hand regardless of the nature of the challenge ahead of me. I would, without hesitation, recommend Sheila to anyone seeking to make any type of professional transition. She has provided me with the tools that lead directly to my finding my current position. She has also provided me with advice that I will continue to employ throughout the rest of my career.
