Patty has demonstrated excellent creative solutions-oriented thinking, leadership, teamwork and communications skills.

Working with Beth from Redfish was amazing. She was understanding, dedicated, and knew exactly what I was qualified for. I could not ask for a better job to start my career right after graduating. The job offer was between me and another person and Beth pushed me through into the position. It’s nice to know someone put so much time and effort into ensuring that I got this job and that I was happy even after my hire. I have learned so much already and continue to grow excited about my job every day. I am extremely grateful to Redfish and Beth for helping begin an amazing career.” – Patty O’Hear
