Rewarding relationships

It is always rewarding to have a client come back to us for help growing their business. As a Project Manager, it is especially satisfying to tell a repeat client that we are all excited to get to work together again, and have the client return the sentiment: “Thanks, Meg, we are psyched as well!”

Rewarding relationships

I love when a candidate turns into a client. It is rewarding to us as a team when someone’s experience was so positive that they want to work with us on the “other side.” It makes for a very personable and trusted relationship.

Relentless drive

When I set my mind to something and am passionate about it, I never give up, regardless of obstacles. At work, I find needles in haystacks – whether I’m at my desk or when a lightbulb goes off in my head in the middle of the night.

“At The Higgins Group, personal and professional growth are highly encouraged. The candor, honesty, and support here is bar none. It’s a breath of fresh air to work in an environment that encourages independence as much as it encourages teamwork.”

Relentless drive

I worked hard to be the best water polo athlete I could be, and it paid off when I received a full scholarship to attend Arizona State University. In my Office Coordinator position I strive for the same level of excellence.

“Having a career in college athletics as both a player and coach has taught me how to be committed, work as part of a team, and have the drive to succeed. All of these skills have led, and will continue to lead, to success with The Higgins Group.”
