What Clients Say
It is my pleasure to recommend Regina. We have been friends since our days at British Petroleum. She became a Vice President for my company from 1998-2004. She did a great job as a career counselor, executive search consultant and leadership coach. She was an entrepreneur at heart and now celebrates a very successful 10 years in her own business. Congratulations Regina, I knew you were destined for success!
