Before joining the TriStaff team, I spent 10 years as Vice President, Talent Acquisition Manager for Citizens Business Bank in Ontario, CA, where I was responsible for all recruitment efforts of the bank. My Team and I focus on recruiting top-talent primarily in the Commercial Banking space for banks throughout California and nationwide. We specialize in placing Relationship Managers, Business Development Officers, Portfolio Managers, Business Bankers, Commercial Underwriters, Credit Analysts, Compliance & Risk Officers, Operations Managers, Regional Managers, Center Managers and Executive level professionals.

I enjoy partnering with my clients to find top-talent to assist them in achieving their company goals, as well as helping a candidate enhance their career.
