    “Several years ago I lost my job as an industrial chemist of 25 years. After discussions with Michal, special assessments and outstanding analysis, she led me to a teaching career which I loved dearly and was dedicated to until my recent retirement. If you need help with career path choice, I strongly recommend you speak with Michal. She is wonderful – very warm and caring and takes a very special interest in her clients”.
