In my capacity as Director of People Operations and Engineering for a large business unit @ NetApp Inc, it has been my pleasure to work with Kita in meeting/exceeding our aggressive hiring objectives over the past two years. I've been most impressed by Kita in two areas: 1) Her genuine interest in understanding our business and what we need. She takes time to meet with me and with hiring managers to get beyond the job description to what we're really looking for, technically and culturally. She asks great questions and is able to zero in on specific competencies, which translates into providing us with candidates that hit the mark. 2) Kita's follow up with me, our internal recruiters, hiring managers, and potential candidates. While working to address the myriad of top priorities we deal with every day, it can be easy to de-prioritize the importance of rapid response and communication in the hiring process. Kita does a great job of keeping our hiring needs front and center, and promptly follows up after candidate application or interviews which helps keep things moving forward at a great pace. Outside of these key values and her professional competencies, Kita is also just a really great person to work with. She's friendly and collaborative, and I always enjoy the opportunity to work with her. I would strongly recommend her to anyone looking for a partner in meeting your hiring needs - she's great at helping find the RIGHT person for a position, not just a person who looks good on paper. In short...highest recommendation!!!

I met Kita shortly after moving to Denver and she has been a great contact ever since. She has been very generous with her time, sharing market knowledge and helping me get a better understanding of the Denver and Boulder tech landscape. She is very knowledgeable about both macro and micro tech trends and has helped me tremendously in choosing consulting engagements that will provide the best learning opportunities and skills development to further my career. She has also volunteered to speak to the software development students I teach at Denver University and help them embark on their new careers. I’m so glad I met Kita and I would highly recommend her!
