Her staffing savvy, insight, experience, and knowledge are why she was named a Top Ten Recruiter by Boston Women’s Business, and why her agency is ranked #1 on Google Reviews.

Donna’s proprietary methodology – Right Match – has led to a consistently high success rate ‐ for matching the right person with the right job, the first time. Donna has been instrumental in running a progressive temporary employment and contracting agency.
