Carol Konicki, PHR SHRM-CP
Human Resources Director at Radiology Associates of Albuquerque, PA

If you're looking for a top-notch consultant with a great work ethic, you can do no better than Marie Thames. I served as Board President of Susan G Komen Central New Mexico and Marie was the consultant who helped us work through the process of dissolving the affiliate. 

She exceeded my expectations by taking complete charge of the process and driving us forward. No job was too small nor too big - if it needed to be done, Marie did it. 

Marie collaborated well with all of those involved in the project, and I found her to be extremely personable. She was a huge asset to SGKCNM during this stressful time, and I can personally attest to her commitment to see a project through to its conclusion. 

Marie is highly organized and detail oriented. She quickly grasps the big picture and then breaks down the process into logical steps to keep the project moving from beginning to end.

Marie was hired as the Executive Director of the New Mexico Retiree Health Care Authority after the previous Director was dismissed for both political and substantive reasons. She had to deal with a disparate Board of Directors and renew faith in the organization. She immediately discovered many problems that had been unrecognized for years. She worked diligently to address these problems and to initiate new systems. Marie has a great deal of expertise in both management and health care. She would be an asset to any organization that needs her skills.
