What do clients say?


  • "Kaiser loves you! If you don't believe me, call MichaelM and ask him!"
          — CEO/President of ITmPowered, Inc.


[Note: This Kaiser boss was three (3) bosses up my KP chain in the Risk Management group. She worked on some extremely large and complex spreadsheets for him that contained all of the regulations and industry standards that applied to them as both a healthcare provider and insurer in 8 different states. ]

  • "Productive!" 
         — Director, Business Operations, Kaiser Permanente


  • "Melodie's done an outstanding job since taking over and I'm thinking of having her write all the recommendations for awards!" 
         — DMInc Executive VP, Civilian Division

    [Note: This refers to her management / supervisory abilities as well as her writing skill.] 

  • "The Union loved the training plan! In fact, they've made it the standard for all Agencies. That's the quality of the work she [Melodie] produces." 
         — IT Center Chief, MSHA

    [Note: The training plan was a detailed class outline and syllabus for two, three-hour virtual training sessions covering the migration from Windows XP to Windows 7 and Office 2003 to Office 2010 at the same time. Quite a jump for those who didn't already have the upgrades at home!]
