Our Mission

To create synergistic relationships as we partner to match pillars of our business communities and only the brightest talent. Building upon our highly coveted reputation and referral-based network, we ensure our candidates are the highest caliber available, thoroughly vetted and matched beyond skill sets to achieve long-term objectives, team fit, and corporate culture fit.

Our Business Model

We provide a refreshing, boutique approach to a variety of staffing challenges that are present in today’s changing market.  With online search options spreading like wildfire, we just focus on the right fit – not key word matching.  We take a deeper dive — beyond the resume.  

Our model assures a quality-centric, referral-driven, personalized approach to an industry which has become diluted over time.  The slow move away from high standards has literally lit a fire under us.  It is imperative that this industry take a step back toward quality.  Our approach isn’t new, in fact it is deeply rooted in the concepts of personalized care, QUALITY over quantity — understanding the whole person with depth and collaborative approach.  The founder’s strong background in training assures that the model stays true to its objective – to do right by both candidates and clients with quality vetting practices and in-depth understanding. We offer basic highly standardized principals that lead the way. Our success is found through our dedication to a referral-driven approach.  Basic practices include bringing individuals together through roundtables and other events, sharing valuable insights and knowledge with other professionals and clients.

MySource carefully partners with our consultants and our clients.  We take care to understand each element to assure maximum success for any given project or role. Experienced professionals don’t desire “a job”-they desire a ‘next step’ in their career doing what they love day in and day out.  In order to generate successful outcomes through their performance, they need to be carefully placed in a company that appreciates their value and the results they bring. For managers who don’t want to just “fill a chair”-we work with you to bring extraordinary people who want to accomplished extraordinary things.  People who bring a team to a higher level of efficiency and productivity because of their ‘whole’ person, not just their technical skills.

We have always had a strong foot-hold in IT Recruitment and now have expanded our business offerings to include ongoing training programs to produce top recruiters for contract, FTE and external placements.  As well, our founder has always been a strong trainer/mentor, so now her knowledge and experience is available to Staffing Firms, Recruitment & HR Teams throughout the country.  We provide expertise in adapting to a rapidly changing recruitment industry.  Currently our expertise is in:
          Information Technology Recruitment
          Contract Recruiting & Outsourcing
          Recruiter Training
          Customized Consulting & Training to HR/Recruitment/Staffing

Our Story

Teena has an unparalleled entrepreneurial spirit and love of business. Through her varied professional roles, she noticed workforce concepts and opportunities that, for whatever reason, were not progressing in times that demanded them. She saw how employees longed for a professional atmosphere where virtual work is trusted and respected, flex hours are a way of life, and people actually do what they love and bring value every day.

After more than 20 years in staffing, HR and marketing, and as a single parent, Teena knows how she can make an impact on the world. She has a dream of providing an environment where people can make a living on their own terms in order to find the balance necessary to be valued both at work and home. Teena has always been driven and goal oriented. Buying and fixing up homes, traveling to distant lands and immersing herself in their cultures, as well as actively working on diversity-focused boards. However, these adventures have all served as side interests while pursuing her true passion—helping others be successful.

The wheels are now in motion—Teena is leading a trend toward more creative work environments designed to inspire excellence. She believes employees will bring tremendous value and loyalty to their employers when they are treated as responsible and accountable adults. They will be respected for their high quality work, and for doing their daily best to make their company, team or project successful. The idea of “failure’s not an option” is not just a saying, but is the foundation on which every decision is made.

MySource Consulting is the brain child—the rough structure—to help highly skilled talent get the jobs they love in the companies they respect; likewise, MySource strives to make certain companies are succeeding in their goals because they have the right people for the right jobs. This approach goes beyond technical skills. Personality styles and values are also considered ensuring everyone is fully committed to a business vision.

If more employers, HR departments, recruiters, managers, and business owners took the time necessary to find and retain the right people in the same fashion as MySource Consulting, turnover would be less of an issue, and businesses would stabilize and thrive. Happy, healthy employees are more focused on assuring employers are meeting their objectives, which leads to success. Although, from a “staffing industry” viewpoint, this approach is not the quickest way to build a business, but it is the right way to build a responsible business—for all parties involved—the job seekers and the employers. It is Teena’s vision that MySource Consulting, its staff and consultants will always provide the very best people in our focus areas and build great project teams around top talent.

Your Journey As A Recruiter


MySource has expanded into two complimentary areas that are in high demand during a time where high integrity Recruitment is critical.  Whether you’re looking for a creative and customized on-site training, or a staffing consultant to assess and recommend the best direction for your team, you’ve come to the right place.




In five days you can learn the basic ‘Art’ of recruitment to use in whatever way suits your life.  Choices include being outsourced (off-site contract work) through MySource, possibly placed on a contract or FTE for a client or another staffing firm, or you’re more than welcome to go out on your own, in an entrepreneurial capacity.  As an independent recruiter, you will have a profession you can have work with you and for you in whichever way your lifestyle demands.

We encourage seasoned professionals to learn recruitment and work in the industry that you know best.  You already know the roles, the companies, even the people.  Why not use that knowledge to create a new career where you can help clients and talent find the job that best fits their family, life and professional goals.  The best recruiters are industry-specific.  Clients know that they need to be diverse and specialized when hiring recruitment partners – with your profession and recruitment know how, you’ll be sought-after.

Program Overview:

Day 1- Lead Generation and Sourcing Basics

Day 2- Reading and matching a resume to a job; basic organization

Day 3 – Interview and vetting candidates – getting to know who they are

Day 4 – Due diligence – submittal day- using the ATS/CRM

Day 5- Client-facing –IV; prep for the IV; culture, follow up & feedback




The staffing and recruitment industry is changing rapidly – and not all for the best.  Staffing firms and recruiters must learn to move with the times in order to stay relevant and in front of the curve.  With the onslaught of online recruitment tools and boards, where’s the need for a reliable recruiter?  It’s right where it’s always been.  Anyone who has been in staffing for a number of years sees the pendulum move in huge contrasts of outsourced recruitment to in-house recruiting, from offshore projects, back to in-house, then back and forth again.  These are just a few of the swings that we’ve seen.  The fact is, the best way to find good people is through good recruiting.  It’s all about people.  If you don’t have a good recruiter who looks at the whole picture, and gets to know their client, then how can the right match happen?  It really can’t.  You can make a guess, or depend on the odds, or place the main responsibility on the client, but recruiters should be sending highly qualified candidates so the client only has to dig into the deep, technical piece of the pie. All recruiters can’t be deeply technical when their ‘day job’ is recruitment.  The technical expertise lies with the client.


Teena Christel has had nearly 25 years in the Staffing industry and is passionate about moving industry into a more respectable ‘art’ that is based upon helping people get the right role, and for companies to have a reliable source from which to obtain quality candidates.

Our Consultants

Our Boutique Approach

Let’s go beyond job descriptions. We are acutely aware that you are much more than your resume. Representing our talent for a position goes beyond the basic skill set match. MySource staff pride themselves on aligning to our boutique-based business model. This means taking time to get to know each and every candidate on a holistic level. Overall knowledge of each person we are building a relationship with goes a long way in making the right fit. And this is not just for our talent. As permitted by our clients, we try to understand the culture, the group, the team and the management style before working in a partnership. Any recruiter can simply do a key word search for companies that need their skills. We know if our consultants have a healthy, happy, and challenging experience, then our clients are happy. We call that a win/win/win.
Actual ‘recruitment’ is an Art. Just as a painter starts with a blank canvas, MySource trains eager, high integrity, relationship-oriented people to learn a new craft – one that can be used in a multitude of ways. Whether outsourced through MySource, placed on contract or FTE for a client, or in an entrepreneurial capacity as an independent recruiter, you will have a profession you can rely upon.

I met Cathy when her company, MySource Consulting, participated in the first semi-annual Puget Sound Chapter of PMI Trade Show. Since that time, her company has been an ardent supporter and role modeling an excellent placement firm. I’ve also been placed by Cathy’s company in a firm and seen the impressive customer service that is provided to both the client and to the contracted resources. She is excellent at identifying strengths and opportunities and matching up needs with talent. Her written and verbal communication skills are impeccable. I enjoy working with Cathy and will continue to do so.”
