After graduating with my degree in Management Information Sciences, I began my career as a hands on, technical professional, in Microsoft, Citrix and Cisco technologies, this previous experience helps me to understand the technology needs of a client, and how to leverage the right professional to fill those needs. Worked as a technical resource for 7 years, for companies such as Jabil Circuit, Citibank, and Verizon. Was then recruited and worked as a full desk recruiter and managed accounts since 2006. Led teams of technical recruiters, performed inside and outside sales, built and maintained relationships with NATIONAL clients including Disney, Price Waterhouse Coopers, Raymond James Financial, Juniper Networks, Cricket Wireless, Fishnet Security, and other enterprise clients.
My high energy, competitive passion, and outgoing personality consistently lead me to being a top producer since moving into a sales/recruiting role in 2006.
Always a technologist at heart, I have always aspired to have one foot in technology as I grow in my career. I believe my strengths are my high energy, outgoing personality and the ability to not only open new doors but maintain those relationships at a very high level.
