"I have personally known Petrina Gooch for approximately 20 years Petrina has helped me to be goal oriented and strategic. She has helped me to focus on the legal and well-rounded business aspect of my career. She has seen me grow from an employee, to a practice owner, and now to a multi-office, skilled professional. I believe her influence helped me be a successful woman-owned, small business owner as an Audiologist. In summary, Petrina shaped me on both a personal and a professional level. She has given me confidence and leadership skills to not only create a business, but to expand, obtain high level contracts with Health Groups and Military contracts, and to constantly be aware of my ability to be considered worthy and able in all aspects of my business. Working with Petrina Gooch has allowed me the freedom to not only believe that I could do what I wanted, but to create, and accomplish my goals. She is realistic, but overwhelmingly encouraging.
