“I have had the pleasure of working with Mitch on a number of searches. One was for a non-profit arts board where through her network, we were able to find two board members at a critical time in the organization’s history. Another was for social media talent. On both occasions, I benefited from her quick turnaround time, and extensive network of talented, motivated, media-savvy individuals.”
