We, as individuals, spend our lifetimes searching for the answer to the question: “Who am I?” For us, this is a critical question – not just because it’s at the core of what we do for others but it’s been at the core of our lives in a special way. We, Tony and Michele, are both adopted children and grew up with this question, and an uncommon ability to assist in the process for others. We believe this is at the core of our mission and brings a unique perspective to the work we do for our clients and candidates.
