Ritual is the leader in artisan and sustainable coffee in the Bay Area. I recruited two Office Managers and led a staff retreat to produce prioritized action plans and deciphering how to measure success. In response, Ritual increased resources towards internal organization and make subtle yet key changes to internal communications.
“Sarah is a phenomenal recruiter. I hired her to help me fill a position after I tried and failed, hiring 3 people in a row who were not a good fit for the position for various reasons. She had a great strategy for identifying who the right candidate would be, gave excellent advice on everything from the job description to salary and benefits, and found someone amazing for me. Throughout the entire process, she was organized, met deadlines and was very communicative. The thing that really won Sarah over to me, was the feedback that I got from the candidates: she mirrored our company culture to a tee, so that candidates got a great sense of our culture from the interactions they had with Sarah. And thanks to her understanding of the importance of our culture, we found a candidate who exceeded the requirements of the job and was a good cultural fit. I would hire her again in a heartbeat!” ~ Eileen Hassi Rinaldi, Owner
"I hired Sarah to conduct an organizational survey, which she quickly completed. She used this information to implement deliverables based on survey input and best practices. These deliverables include leading rebranding efforts of collateral, creating systems for reporting key fundraising metrics, acting as an informed sounding board and developing strategies for both communications and fundraising. She’s easy to relate to, prompt in providing analysis and formulating action plans, and effective in her communications with stakeholders, vendors, and potential supporters." ~ Herb Castillo, Executive Director

"Sarah is without a doubt, the most results-oriented, team-focused, and client-driven contractors with whom we have ever worked. Her professional and friendly attitude is a high remark, and a catalyst for bringing people together toward action. She is independent, extremely organizes, and always on top of it. We are extremely grateful for her support." ~ Antonio Aguillera, Board President

"Sarah stepped in at a strategic point in my business, supporting it through some complex changes. While training the new staff, she recommended and documented many business redesigns, including a fool-proof method for predicting cashflow as well as financial reporting. She exhibits proactive enthusiasm in meeting challenges and once on a project, sees it through to completion. Her ability to work with others is above average and I'm happy to recommend her skill set." ~ Lee Stimmel, Owner
