My 15 years of sales and recruitment experience in creative and interactive have made me a pro in career counseling and client relationship development. I love getting to know New England’s top talent, providing career guidance and coaching while developing professional relationships that last. My favorite “staffing success” story is a placement that lasted a year, when it had originally been contracted for just one week. As a devoted wife and mother of two beautiful boys, I love to spend time with my family -- biking and swimming when we can.

I've been working in sales and recruitment for over 15 years. I love building new client relationships and establishing a great rapport based on mutual success. When your business needs creative, marketing or interactive minds, I'm here to help. When it's time to play, you'll find me spending time with my two young sons, reading and filling my brain with useless trivia.

From carrying a certain News personality’s briefcase of shoes, to planning an amazingly successful recruiting open house with a mere 3 days lead time, Karen Maki comes to CM Access with a broad, intriguing background completely unique to her. It’s this unique perspective that allows Karen to be not just successful, but deeply insightful to the needs of her talent, and our clients. Her curiosity, sharp instincts, and quick sense of humor make Karen a wonderful colleague, and we look forward to what she’ll do next!

Cynthia came to staffing in a serendipitously organic manner. Once upon a time, she was grinding out 60+ hour work weeks at a prestigious advertising agency. She reached out to a good friend who happened to be a recruiter, and they thought Cynthia would be fantastic in staffing. They were 100% correct, and we couldn’t be happier that Cynthia has joined the CM Access family. She’s worked on ad campaigns from concept to execution, and can speak to our talent both candidly and knowledgeably. This, combined with her sharp wit, gregarious personality, and drive, makes Cynthia a great fit for CM Access.
