Tell us about your specialties, experience, or the industry you recruit for: I began my career in retail HR management over ten years ago. I fell in love with the “people” aspect of the job. I was responsible for hiring, training and developing staff. I currently partner with nonprofits to find the best fit in talent. I have successfully placed candidates in a variety of roles ranging from entry-level to Executive. I truly believe a successful placement is having the right candidate, in the right place, at the right time. Timing is everything when it comes to staffing.
What makes you a unique recruiter? (i.e., why will a candidate want to work with you?): I try to be as transparent as possible with my candidates. I find that they appreciate my honesty and it allows for a more successful partnership. I try to get to know my candidates not just professionally, but also personally, in order to really find the position that is best suited for them. We work in partnership —  I am here to help open the door, but it’s ultimately up to them to get that job.
Why do you like recruiting? I find satisfaction and fulfillment in knowing that I am affecting positive change by placing candidates in organizations that are changing the world.
Why PNP Staffing Group? I joined PNP five years ago because I wanted to do work that helped fulfill a greater purpose. We work with a lot of interesting organizations, some that I’ve known and some that are new to me. I learn something new every day, whether it be from a client, candidate, or a colleague.

What do you enjoy doing outside of recruiting? (i.e., hobbies, passions, projects, etc.) We are headquartered in what is the best city in the world. I love to explore the City – museums, restaurants, parks, outdoor activities. I love to travel and spend time at the gym.
