I have the coolest job in the world! Defined: Recruit (1635-45); < French, stem of recruter, derivative of recrue new growth. I love this definition – it’s focus is on new growth. I help individuals, departments and organizations grow! As an industry generalist I have the opportunity to learn about the latest technology in real time and converse with the most intelligent, creative and educated people in their respective fields. What a gift to be able to learn from my clients and candidates who keep me current and ahead of industry technology trends while helping them grow their careers and teams. I cut my recruiting teeth by staffing Qualcomm Assemblers (I earned a Soldering Certificate – trained by Qualcomm’s then Production Manager) to Engineering and everything in between. I believe my greatest strength lies in my ability to learn a company and its products as if I work for them- because I do! This leads to the opportunity to build their teams across multi-disciplines, Engineering, Sales & Marketing, Quality, Materials, Operations and Management/C-Level, across multiple industries. (Medical device, Electronics, Green technology, DOD and Scientific) I have helped numerous startups as well as mature corporations grow their teams. My network of contacts has been built over 25 years and has proved invaluable as a resource in finding the best of the best for companies and candidates. Originally from Buffalo, NY (Go Bills!) I earned my BS from SUNY Oswego in Elementary Education (comes in handy as I do a lot of coaching!)
