Just wanted to thank you for lining me up with frankly some excellent people to interview. I’ve never had such difficulty in picking someone!
Nicky was an invaluable help just when we needed her, and she found us the perfect person for the job. A great find!
I worked with Nicky for several months at Sundog Pictures and she was great: knowledgeable, well connected, and super-smart, with terrific industry relationships built over a long time. She just gets it!
