I have always taken a keen interest in building, forming and maintaining relationships which has directed me towards a career in sales. Throughout my career I have specialized in working closely with small to mid-size clients, as well as Fortune 500 clients I have worked on jobs varying from all sectors but I specialize in the information Technology sector. I especially enjoy working within the technology sector of recruiting because it allows me to stay close to the cutting edge resources that will lead us into the future!I am a Philadelphia, PA native who received his degree in B.S. Marketing from the Indiana University of Pennsylvania. I enjoy anything and everything beach related, hence my current residence in Southern California! I am passionate about assisting others with finding their dream job and nothing is more rewarding to me then helping others find career opportunities.
After graduating at U.C. Irvine, I sought to translate my interpersonal and communication skills towards becoming an Executive Recruiter. I spent a few successful years as a Mortgage Recruiter growing the entire Midwest presence of my previous company.
I have a track record, of helping companies staff up quickly and successfully, as well as helping established companies find the people who are the “perfect” fit for the job.
I always seek to put the clients’s needs first and that is why a majority of my business comes from past Referrals and word of mouth. So, if you are a candidate looking for your next career opportunity or a client that needs to find a perfect candidate, give me a call, and I’ll work tirelessly to meet your needs.
**If you refer a new company/hiring manager who is hiring, I will give you $1,000 EVERY TIME they hire someone from me! For the next TWO YEARS**
Since I love to recruit, that could mean a lot of money for your =).
Who do you know that is either a great company/hiring manager who is hiring and could use my help?!
With over 15 years’ experience in the technology industry, I aim to raise the bar to the entire recruiting experience. I’m a US Army veteran with Bachelors in Business Management and hold several technical and industry certifications. The majority of my tenure has been focused in technical project management while specializing in full-time/permanent placement of IT professionals (e.g., software engineers and application developers, database administrators, systems and network engineers, etc.) The hiring process can be complex without a good process which yields results. It provides me great satisfaction to make myself available for any client thinking about making their next hire, or any candidate inquiring about making a career move. I believe in offering my clients flexible, cost-effective staffing solutions that allow them to maximize the power of technology for the ongoing success of their business. Please do not hesitate to call me if you have any questions, and I hope we can work together soon.
I am a Southern California raised Executive Recruiter who specialize in placing candidates within the tech field. I have experience in placing candidates all over the country, and while most of my clients are within the tech field, I have also worked nationally with both start ups and Fortune 500’s in various industries. One of the reasons I enjoy recruiting is because it enables me to create long lasting relationships between candidates and clients.
Come Feb 2013 I ill have been a Direct ire Recruiter with CyberCoders for over 6 years. Before then, I did a 3.5 year stint in Temporary Administrative and Accounting placement. I truly do not have a niche. My specialty has been to really listen to the hiring needs of my clients, clarify the functions of the position, and go after that person. I have placed VP’s of Ecommerce, General Merchandise Managers, DMM’s, Online Marketing Managers, Web Content Managers, Buyers, Planners, Chemists, Shipping and Receiving Managers, Java Developers, C# Developers, RPG Programmers and more! Where I really received my first taste of recruiting as a Retail Store Manager a.most 15 years ago. I quickly found I was able to accurately determine if someone would be a good , long term employee. During college I had the opportunity to become a Manufacturer’s Representative and District Sales Manager. In this position, while calling on companies I learned how to access and identify their needs,thus building their trust in my abilities. After successive promotions which required me to put my eduction on the back burner, I decided to return to college and graduated with honors with a Bachelor’s in Marketing. I stumbled into recruiting by accident after walking into an agency looking for short term work while seeking full-time employment myself. After starting off with temporary placement, I quickly learned the benefit of working with professional level candidates and companies in corporate full-time placement.
For the past 5 years, I have worked as a recruiter for sales and management professionals, dedicated myself to in finding the right person for the right role. I focus on building relationships with job seekers and employers, where I specialize in determining needs and delivering high quality candidates. I studied modern languages at Middlebury College and graduated from Grove City College outside of Pittsburgh, PA. I started my career in sales before focusing on HR and recruiting. Outside of recruiting I love running half marathons with my dog and exploring new restaurants.

Recruiting is about two things, relationships and talent. I take pride in my ability to foster relationships and provide my clients with top talent quicker than my competition. Specializing in technical recruiting. I have worked with dozens of companies of various sizes from fortune 500 to small start-ups throughout the Silicon Valley and Bay Area. Positions I have place include but are not limited to Developers, Programmers, Architects, Designers, Web Developers, Application Developers, DBA’s, Software Engineers and Project Managers.
I leverage my degree in Project Management from California State University, Chico to provide a very consultative approach to my clients to identify their specific needs. Only by understanding the problem, can we discover a solution.
Born and raised in Orange County, CA I love hanging out at the beach, going on bike rides and being around good people and good food.
I have been a technology recruiter for 15 years and love it! Prior to recruiting I was in technology for 19 years…please don’t add up the years. My last ten years in technology I was a development manager for PepsiCo. I recruit for all types of technology roles whether applications (my personal background) or infrastructure across all industries. I myself have been a developer, business analyst, project manager and manager. If I did not do the role I interfaced with it especially on the infrastructure side. I’m very visual and I can actually picture almost every role as if the person was sitting in their seat. I try to build a benchmark immediately and calibrate quickly on feedback to truly target the search. My corporate upbringing has not only taught me the technology skillset but more importantly what culture means and therefore “fit” within each of my clients companies. I’m passionate about recruiting and all my placements are like marriages!
I’m a technologist at heart. I have a BS from Fairleigh Dickinson University (school of Engineering) in Computer Science with a minor in Math. I’m very big picture and need to know how everything fits in, which translates well when recruiting and understanding how the role fits into the organization. When I was younger I always loved to connect the dots and that’s what recruiting is all about. I love people and it’s amazing from the start of a new role to placement how the dots all connected together. I’m a strong relationship builder and have long lasting ties to clients and candidates for years. I take pride in these relationships the same way I take pride in my personal friendships that last forever! I met my husband in college and have two fabulous kids (now working adults) and that all comes from working hard at my relationships!
Recruiting starts with people. We do the most amazing thing, we change people’s lives! I truly listen love feedback, especially the bad, that feedback is the only way to grow and get better. My job is to make a marriage, help a client fill a very important void that will impact their business. For the candidate I’m not only working with them, but I’m taking care of their family too, this is all personal to me!
