Just reaching out to say that each day I am more grateful for this opportunity that Linda & Ciara helped to make possible. I cannot express in words how much they have done for me. They listened and delivered on every point – location, salary, responsibilities, benefits, etc. They provided advice and encouragement and were with me on every step of this journey, and I appreciate them both. I am looking forward to many years at my new firm, but should anything change, they will be the first ones I call!”
