Fun Facts:  

What’s your favorite travel destination, or where would you like to go?

I traveled to Spain two years ago and was impressed with their culture and cuisine. The delicious tapas, the hospitality and the wine were amazing!

If you could have any other fantasy career what would it be and why?

Freelance Travel Photographer- I love to travel and explore new places. I traveled to Patagonia and hiked for days. I’d love to be able to share that beauty and experience with others while getting paid!

What motivates you to work hard?

I enjoy meeting and getting to know clients and candidates. Building that relationship and trust motivates me to go above and beyond until I find the right fit.
