Similarly, she strives to know the experiences, expectations, and personalities of executive candidates in order to guide them in their careers and ensure that they are a strong cultural fit for potential employers. Managing the relationship and interaction between candidates and clients is also a cornerstone of her work.

In addition, she has performed many leadership searches for managed care and insurance organizations, hospitals and health systems, healthcare associations, medical centers, universities, and other organizations. Her executive level placements include chief medical officers, medical directors, chief operating officers, chief financial officers, chief nursing officers and various other director-level positions.
