Interesting Facts:

What motivates you to work hard?

Everyone has a story; I enjoy listening to the story of each candidate I speak with. Maybe they were laid off unexpectedly, maybe they recently moved to the area, or maybe they need to find something closer to home- each story is unique. Building that relationship and trust motivates me to go above and beyond until I find the right fit.

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

I enjoy traveling and recently my husband and I went to Japan for our honeymoon. We spent time in Tokyo and Kyoto and want to go back to spend more time there. The culture, sushi, hiking and the temples were amazing to experience.

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

Professional Athlete – I would love to get paid to workout and travel to various race destinations. I have completed two IronMan Triathlons – so I enjoy swimming and cycling. Plus, most athletes have their own chefs that cook for them – I could get on-board with that!
