I would not hesitate in recommending Laura. She was thorough and more than helpful with my search, always ensuring that she was available to advise and direct me any time of day or night. She provided honest, professional, hands-on support during my search and was always prompt in providing updates on the position. I found her approachable and human in what is always an unsettling process. Thank you, and I hope to work with you again.
