It was a great pleasure working with Sharman. She is professional, knowledgeable, and patient. She took the time out of her busy schedule on the first day to briefly explain things to me. Then after doing business with her over the next few weeks, every fear I had went away. She also provided the materials that will guide you along the way. ~ S.T.



Sharman gave me the tools to be able to pursue my adventure in this environment. She was very easy to talk to and listened attentively. Sharman has a lot of knowledge, and is willing to take what she has learned and experienced to assist others like myself. Thank you for all your assistance. ~ A.W.


Thank you so much! I will definitely be using your services again. ~ L.D.


I felt more confident because  Sharman opened my eyes regarding the care home business. I will recommend Sharman pch consulting service to others, because she is straight forward with the truth. ~ F.T.


I liked Sharman's patience in answering questions. She is polite enough to say, "Am I clear? I know this is a lot of information." That helped a lot, because I felt that she really wanted me to understand, not get me off the phone. Sharman's services are the water in the desert land. ~ R.W.


Sharman's knowledge of the PCH process is evident just from the services she provides. Ranging from forms and documents to actually more involved visitation orientated approach. Her services would be recommended to save time, resources; overall broadening of knowledge in the PCH industry. ~ F.J.
