"Jenna provided SJ Electric with an informative and fun way to learn the strengths and weaknesses of not only ourselves but our team as a whole. Her knowledge of the DiSC profile education was limitless, and all the employees enjoyed taking part in the workshop. Highly recommend Jenna and her workshops as an excellent resource for team building!"

Kerry P.

Creer Transition Client

Wichita, KS

"I was looking at a downgrade in my current position.  It was time to reevaluate what I wanted to do and how to get back into the job market after being at the same organization for 16 years. Jenna at Wallace Associates was so encouraging and assured me that I would find a role better suited for me that would pay better. With her help and inspiration, we worked to find roles that I could bring my skills to, along with the resume and application process. We even did interview role-playing to help me prepare for interviews.  She gave me the confidence boost I needed.  I would highly recommend Jenna at Wallace Associates to anyone looking to make a career change."
