What our clients say
I can’t recommend Maria and Humanage enough.
Too often consultants take too long to come up to speed, don’t seem to understand your specific goals or don’t recognize problems unique to your industry. Maria hits the floor running and offers valuable help and a perspective that can only be achieved through years of experience and a natural talent.
She is part of the solution. This is rare and we appreciate having her on our team.
Steve Sando - President, Rancho Gordo, Inc
We needed an HR person to consult when a difficult situation arose; someone that we could call for advice on best practices. Maria is flexible and willing to work with us as needed, and she always gets right back to us when we call or email with a question. She has helped with training our management staff on best practices and conflict resolution, and was also a huge help when I was setting up our ACA Module with ADP.
I would definitely recommend Maria. Her service and support at Lamar has been invaluable.

We found her to be bright, caring, responsive and very helpful.Maria and Humanage HR was perfect for a nonprofit our size with no HR independent department. Maria was recommended to us and it turned out to be one of the best recommendations we have had. Humanage HR helped us design an HR program that fit our needs. Maria helped us create a pathway to our future and helped us understand our needs and resources better than we did before we worked with Humanage HR.
Working with Maria at Humanage HR will be one of the best decisions you will make for your business or nonprofit.
Dorothy Salmon - The Pathway Home
As sole proprietor of a growing business, I quickly recognized the importance of establishing personnel policies and creating an employee handbook, as well as establishing policies and procedures. I was clueless as to how to begin, but knew that I wanted an employee handbook that reflected the progressive culture of my company. In addition to the numerous glowing referrals, after speaking with Maria, I was convinced that I need look no further for my HR needs. Maria’s professional approach, her extensive knowledge, and her ability to communicate complicated information in a clear manner was apparent from our first meeting.
She has navigated me through sensitive communication and actions with employee issues related to hiring and firing, compensation guidelines, and procedures. Maria has been instrumental in helping to craft policy decisions and communications, as well as in developing Verve’s employee handbook. More than just a boilerplate document, it is tailored to my company and my management style. I can’t even imagine the cost to me of not working with Maria. Her advice on all topics related to HR has been invaluable; she is available, knowledgeable, understands and anticipates my needs, referring me to others when necessary. I can’t recommend Maria and HumanageHR strongly enough.
T Beller - Verve Napa Valley
I hired HumanageHR because my business is growing. I knew I could not keep up with what was needed, and I needed to update to current regulations. The results of working with HumanageHR were greater than I expected. Maria is very professional and knowledgeable, and I would highly recommend her.
