Sarah has extensive experience assisting small businesses to create an HR department from scratch. Her strengths are creating documents and processes to increase productivity. For her client that means organizing email and calendars to boost efficiency and reduce redundancy, utilizing Trello for task delegation and quick communication and offering a professional and confidential experience. Her favorite part is collaborating with the client to find the best way to meet their unique needs.
