I’m a recruiter for the cyber security industry whose strong suit is building relationships while tenaciously pursuing opportunities. I see into the void and create buy-in for new ways of thinking. A mentee of mine affectionately calls me tiger because I go after what I want and don’t give up until I get the job done. I’m driven by the ability to make a positive impact on people’s lives and happiest when my clients have a light bulb moment.
I am no stranger to recruiting and the field of cyber security. As a Certified Identity Theft Risk Management Specialist (CITRMS), I have worked with hundreds of corporations, nonprofits, and associations on data breach prevention, identity theft awareness, and creating a culture of security. My career began as a technical writer at a Fortune 500 IT firm. I transitioned to marketing communication and then to sales and business development.
My approach is based exclusively on a mutual satisfaction of needs, wants, and desires between candidates and organizations. I earn people's trust and build authentic relationships one step at a time. Because we are a single site, boutique firm, your information isn't in a shared database where a breach of confidentiality could occur. This helps to create a sense of privacy and removes barriers, so candidates feel comfortable taking a peek at opportunities.
It's no secret that one of the biggest threats to our nation's cyber security is the lack of talented people to work in the industry. I'm here to be part of the solution, roll up my sleeves, and get to work.
