Team

Whereas many of our competitors are simply resellers who engage independent contractors, each team member at Newleaf is either an owner or an employee, and therefore each is committed to serving our clients exceptionally.

As true client partners,  we listen very carefully to your needs before proposing the team members who  can best serve your interests.

Since day one in 2006, we’ve realized our clients also needed to have unquestionable confidence in our billing and project administration, so we take the greatest care to pay close attention to your exact needs.

Allow us to introduce ourselves…
