What Clients Say About Patrice & Associates

  • Michael worked hard for me.

    Michael Bickle reached out to me and came across my resume on Indeed.  He helped assist me with my new job and was very enthusiastic and worked hard for me.  I can honestly say I would most likely still be on the job hunt if it were not for him. I can now say I'm a proud manager at a great company and I have Michael to thank for that.
    Thank you,
