Initially the process seemed daunting, but Katherine spent so much time listening at the beginning of the process she was able to fully understand our needs and requirements. Her unique blend of professionalism, experience, and attention to detail with a real care for her clients has meant we have found the perfect match and the process of finding help within our home has been a really positive experience. Thank you Katherine.”

“After being with our first family for 18 years looking for a new position was daunting, we met Katherine who was so encouraging and professional, within a week we had 3 interviews lined up and were offered a job within 10 days!! What we had thought was going to be difficult, with Katherine as our mediator was just so exciting. She understood us as a couple and matched us with the most lovely family. We remain so grateful for the ongoing support and cannot recommend her enough to anyone looking for work in this sector and to any prospective employers.”
