About Ciprani Consulting



Our Story 

Ciprani Consulting was launched out of Linzee Ciprani’s home shortly after she left a position managing one of the top real estate teams in Pennsylvania (2014).  Ciprani Consulting was quickly born once several successful local businesses sought Linzee’s help in hiring and training their next administrative assistant. The team at Ciprani Consulting has now successfully hired, trained, consulted, and coached for team members at all levels of an organization, from leadership to sales and support. We are excited to help you find and train your next talented team member.
