Executive Recruiter

I joined the TriStaff Group in 2016 as the Director of Business Development. I was brought in to expand the size and scope of the Accounting, Finance and Operations Division. Prior to joining the TriStaff Group I spent nearly 10 years in the Recruiting industry. Throughout that time I’ve placed Contract staff, managed a multi-office Consulting division and placed many C-Level and Senior executives nationwide. I really enjoy being a trusted adviser to my clients and introducing them to the best and the brightest candidates capable of being recruited. I value the long-term relationships I’ve creates with clients and candidates, many of which span my entire career. I’m a California Native, having grown up in the San Fernando Valley. I moved to San Diego five years ago. Outside of work I enjoy Stand-up Paddle boarding, I am an avid martial artist, and I have been an active member of Rotary International for over 14 years.
