Since 2013, I’ve been an Engineering & Executive Search Recruiter, specializing in hardware engineering recruitment within Southern California. The majority of my clients are small, well-funded startups within the medical device and consumer electronics industries. Positions that I specialize in: Mechanical Engineers, Electrical Engineers, Quality Assurance, Manufacturing Engineers, Systems Engineers, Operations, Project Managers. I’m also the proud mother of two strong-willed daughters, and my husband is the Director of Operations at a local startup Medical Device Company, so I’m deeply embedded in the engineering space!
