Need help finding the right talent?


As a leader, it can stressful to hire, knowing that getting from where you are today to where you want to be tomorrow requires just one new recruit


in that important role ...


We know what it's like and that the stakes are high for every new hire to succeed. That's why we enjoy helping companies find each building block, ultimately creating the big picture you're looking for.

We approach things a bit differently. Though some might call us headhunters, we are People Experts who really understand what's important to clients and candidates. Our focus is not just to recruit. It’s also important to us that we build a hiring process that creates strong long-term career relationships between our clients and candidates. Making sure the candidate experience keeps your brand intact and helps you evaluate a diverse slate of candidates to keep your company competitive and innovative. Being a women-owned recruitment firm, diversity is important to us. And, yes, we have a lot of insider understanding of the energy industry and the chemical industry. 


As recruiters, we don’t come to you with a problem we solve, we listen to what's important to you, what top talent looks like in your company, and we build a solution that fits your needs. Striving to save you time recruiting and letting you get back to the daily tasks of running a business; attracting and presenting only qualified candidates to you.

What People Are Saying (Home Page)

"When I moved to Houston to start a new company in oil and gas I had to quickly build out a team that could drive a PE-backed startup to an IPO within a year. Kimberly stepped in and helped me as we quickly built out the right team.  I have worked with many HR recruiters in the past and she far excelled them all.  She is a thought partner, a visionary, and a team player.  I felt like she truly was part of my team in the HR department helping me see gaps in talent where I wasn’t seeing them.  I would highly recommend working with Kimberly at any stage of your company."
