When you find that thing in life that inspires you and excites you and fills your day with joy, it wakes you up. That’s what happened to me over 20 years ago. And I feel like I’ve been the luckiest person ever since.
Like most people starting out, I had some ideas of what I might want to do. I’d had some success with sales and found out I was pretty good at it. To me “sales” isn’t about what most people think it is. To me it’s about listening, solving problems and finding great solutions that work for everyone.
My sales skills found a whole new gear when I took a job at a recruiting and staffing company. Suddenly it all clicked. My calling became obvious and crystal clear. Helping companies find great people and great people find great companies was it for me. I simply loved it. It was so gratifying.
I realized I could dedicate my life to helping talented people get that feeling I discovered for myself: to help others be in the right place doing the right thing for the right people.
That’s why I started True Talent Group over a decade ago, to live those values every day. To get and give that feeling whenever possible. That’s what drives me and it’s what drives everyone at TTG.
Thanks for stopping by.

We build long-lasting professional relationships that foster deep understanding and trust. We know our talent and what it takes for them to feel fulfilled in their work. We meet with our clients to understand their challenges and provide the best talent to meet their needs.
We believe in giving back. In spades. That’s why over the past decade we’ve committed to numerous organizations. Today, our choice in community involvement is reflective of the passion the leaders of these organizations put forth.
Cancer isn’t cancelled but we hope it will be soon. The “ALTRUEISTS”, led by Stacey Stratton, recently participated in a philanthropic competition to support LLS. During the COVID-19 pandemic and social injustice, the team raised more than $45,000 (not a small feat!) for the cause and Stacey was named the “2020 Woman of the Year”.
Today, the founder and President of TTG serves on the Board of this organization and has volunteered hundreds of hours to doing good alongside of others on the team and throughout the Twin Cities community. TTG employees are also active, using PTO to work one-to-one with students through the original and creative program that is Art Buddies. This giving is combined with financial support to ensure the Art Buddies’ mission can continue to be delivered.
Our team members are an active part of the Dress for Success (DFS) community, hosting DFS drives, volunteering, and our own Lisa Matre is on the Development Committee.
The vision of Dress for Success Twin Cities is to significantly increase the number of women who gain and maintain personal and financial stability in order to support themselves and their family.
Giving comes in many shapes and forms. Throughout the course of the past year, financial gifting has been given back to help support more lives and stories that is the mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Active participation in The Legends for Charity® Annual Super Bowl event, along with local dinner and giving events, is ongoing.
Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) believes hope starts with food. FMSC meals are hand-packed by volunteers and sent to an incredible network of partner organizations that stay with communities for the long haul, empowering them to move from relief to development. More than 91 percent of total donations go directly to feed kids. In addition to financial gifts, TTG employees participate in food packing events in the Twin Cities.
