Client Testimonials

“There is not just a recruiter for us. She has become more of a strategic staffing partner – a veritable extension of our internal team to help fill both hard to fill AND key talent positions. She has provided an exceptional slate of talent for operations, accounting, and sales & marketing roles, but what we love most is her ability to bring forward prospective employees that are a great culture fit. The feedback we get when candidates come onsite is how incredibly well she has represented our company, the role, and the team they’d be meeting for the interviews.”

Angela Jones
SVP of People and Operations @ Compass Minerals

“Theresa’s passion for talent shows through in all that she does. She has immense knowledge about what it takes to be an A-player and easily recognizes talent that will fit in a culture to be successful. I’ve learned so much from her about the importance of a talent culture – it has allowed me to build a team that is focused on how we do things as much as what we do.”

Carrie Weber
SVP, Chief Risk & Compliance Officer Ameritas
“I’ve worked with Theresa on multiple different occasions throughout the years and she is by far the best! Theresa is personable, professional, extremely helpful and her energy is second to none. She has an aptitude for understanding her client’s needs and is a career coach before she is a recruiter. Unlike any recruiter I have ever worked with, Theresa will listen to where you think you can provide the most value to a company and go out of the way to make it happen. If there are no opportunities available, she will make connections and find one! She is incredibly transparent and provides insight into available opportunities and it is always a pleasure to work with her. I highly recommend her and her outstanding services!”

“Theresa and her team provided the BEST recruiting experience I have ever had. Point blank. Period. The first thing I noticed is that they genuinely cared about me. Their focus was always to make sure I found the best and right opportunity that we perfect for ME. We consistently had conversations and for each interview, they consistently ensured that I was over-prepared. Every action from the Nordstrom Talent team showed how much they truly care. I cannot thank them enough. Highly, highly, highly recommend!”

“I had such an amazing experience working with Nordstrom Talent. The team was wonderful in taking the time to fully understand my talents, passions, and history. With this information and their abilities, they were able to match me with a new fantastic role. I appreciated their unique approach to matching candidates with clients so much that as a VP of Human Resources I used Nordstrom Talent to hire my first employee at my new company. Excellent candidate and great long-term match for the organization.”
Rikki Wardyn
VP of HR Banyan Medical Systems

“Theresa is in tune with her client’s needs by building a deep and long-lasting relationship with them and delivering candidates that are top-notch. Her candidates challenge themselves to be at their best every day and are looking not just for a job, but an opportunity to grow with the organization.

She looks beyond the job requirements and pursues candidates that matches the company’s culture and aligns with their goals and vision. Her intuition uncovers each candidate’s potential enabling her to easily identify how best to maximize their strengths. If you have a role that’s tough to fill and are looking to partner with someone who can deliver, contact Theresa. She will get to know your organization on a personal level and deliver outstanding candidates to fill your positions.”

Stephanie Dieleman

“No one has worked harder or delivered better results for us than Theresa. Of the ten new hires we’ve had on my US team since I joined my current organization just ten months ago, Theresa has placed five of them with us. She has taken the time to build a deep understanding of what we need (i.e., A Players), worked tirelessly to leverage and expand her network of candidates resulting in a better flow for us, and done a tremendous job managing the recruiting process from attract to hire.

She is passionate about our organization and her candidates’ sense that passion. She is not focused on ‘filling an open requisition’ as much as she is on finding the right talent for us and the right role for her candidates.”

SVP & Chief Audit Executive
“During a period of rapid growth and change for our company, we used a number of local and national staff augmentation and recruiting agencies to help us source talent to meet our needs – with mixed results. It was not until partnering with Theresa that we were finally able to assemble a team capable of getting us to the next level of growth and maturity. Theresa’s unique talents permit her to connect with management and understand where we were headed, what challenges we faced and how to locate high energy and capable professionals to join our team. We now have the best team ever at this business and Theresa is the reason for this.”
John Jenkins
CEO & Founder @ Benaissance

“Theresa joined our firm at a pivotal point in our development. We were growing exponentially and were paying sourcing fees that matched that growth. Theresa brought three specific benefits to the organization that were instrumental in changing that course. The first was maturity in the HR process. We were very loose in our approach and immediate/reactionary needs drove our actions not the overall planning of our strategic direction for human capital management.

The second was a 90+ percent reduction in overall costs associated with the acquisition of talent. We moved from a totally outsourced model to a coordinated approach that had a dramatic and expeditious effect in reducing cost.

The third and most important benefit was the change in our cultural environment. Our retention statistics increased, our EE engagement improved, and our productivity within the organization skyrocketed as the result of the changes Theresa implemented. If you are in need of high-quality talent, mature HR processes and decreased overall expense associated with managing headcount, Theresa can be your answer.”
