  • Shanon placed me in a regulatory position. Her dedication to her role and excellent communication skills had led to a successful outcome. Throughout the entire interview process, she was always promptly respond to calls and emails, and very diligent in communication and follow-ups. Given that the opportunity was oversea, due to difference in culture and legal framework, there were a lot of challenges in the hiring process. Shanon was always there to answer any questions that I had. I truly appreciate her assistance.
