My passion for helping people and impacting their lives with the right role has never been higher. I finally have combined all of my experience into one role -doing the very best I can to effectively communicate with job seekers and employers to put the right person together with the right opportunity. My breadth of experience has allowed me to develop into a well-rounded talent acquisition professional who delivers results.
I am one of the best "utility players" you will ever find - able to move from being highly strategic to tactical. I love using smart technology like Salesforce.com, Chatter and social media platforms, encouraging adoption and leading the way by example.
I've spent most of my years consulting and recruiting in the HR arena. Having my own consulting firm has given me the flexibility to find the right solutions for clients and candidates "just in time" which is a skill that those in the know can truly appreciate.
Specialties: recruiting, candidate identification, CRM, social media, Salesforce.com, Chatter, WANTED Analytics, strategic planning, marketing, advertising, branding, channel management, human capital consulting, software solutions, applicant tracking systems, professional writing, comic relief
