Services

Samantha subscribes to the Jerry Maguire approach of service delivery: low number of clients with highly personalized counsel and service. She may not always tell you what you want to hear, but she will tell you what you need to know, and if you ask for it, what you need to do, too. Then she’ll do it for you, or in collaboration with you and your team. Samantha provides the following services to clients and would be happy to provide them for you, too:
