She also conducts searches for higher education institutions outside the medical sector. Stephanie takes pride in taking the time to understand each organization's culture. Her warm, responsive, and diplomatic demeanor helps her develop a strong rapport with her clients, enabling her to connect with the individuals who make the organization successful. By implementing this tailored approach to each search, she gives clients full confidence in her knack for finding the right leaders.
