“There’s a lot of choices out there when it comes to search firms, but I’ve always gone back to Julie and MedBest. I like that Julie came right out of the industry and understands the day-to-day operations. That’s why she’s able to find the right fit for both the C-level and Mid-Level management positions. I also like that she doesn’t use the shotgun approach. In other words, she doesn’t source on Indeed for resumes. With Julie’s in-depth knowledge and network, she’s able to locate those hard to find candidates and that’s worth gold!” Dan Williams, COO & Principal, Seasons Living
