Testimonials

Working with Elaine was a pleasant experience, she listened to my concerns and helped me navigate a career change that I really needed. I wanted to re-imagine what I wanted to do for a career, and by working with Elaine and using the assessment tools she offers, I was able to create a new career path for myself in the Information Security field. I can't say enough good things about Elaine, I can only suggest that if anyone gets the opportunity to work with her, take it, you will not be disappointed!
