  • “I have worked in the food-service industry in the Corpus Christi market for 13 years. Working with Lilliam Zanatti was the edge I needed to be able to accept my dream job. Corpus Christi is an expanding market in the food-service industry, but its not without it's challenges. Ms. Zanatti assisted me with those challenges. She was professional, encouraging and often times motivating. Although I respected her time, I knew she was available anytime I needed to speak with her. She was literally there for me every step of the way and has reached out to me with words of encouragement and congratulations since accepting my new position. I highly recommend Lilliam to any individual or company looking to fill any recruiting needs. She was an absolute joy to work with, and I honestly believe that I would not have gotten my current opportunity without her." -Marc D., Culinary Manager I would not have gotten my current opportunity without her.
