Born in NYC and raised in NJ. Had a fantastic childhood with wonderful parents-both high school teachers. My mother was my best friend and very wise; she taught me to be fiercely independent, resilient to whatever life throws you and to always value close, long-term relationships.
I turned down a generous offer from J&J in Spain, (I was fluent at the time), after being wooed by a search firm whose “sky is the limit” description of a career in recruiting was too appealing to pass up. My parents struggled to understand how I could turn down Fortune 50 J&J “to steal people for a living!” I have since redeemed myself and our profession!
A young woman burst into tears during the middle of our interview as she discovered she was completely unprepared. I encouraged her to calm down and stay the course. While she didn’t get that particular job and I didn’t represent her as a candidate, a few years later (and a lot more prepared) she became a client!
People with passion, pride in what they do and “never give up” attitudes! People that can balance family values with career achievements, relationship builders and people with integrity and sense of humor even in the face of adversity!
Since my knees told me through repeat injuries that I couldn’t be a professional ballerina, I can’t imagine doing anything else. Search is in my DNA and I love it!
