I am originally from Redondo Beach, California and later moved to Northern California where I lived for several years before moving to Houston, Texas.
My career did not begin with a search firm. I began my career with a financial communications company where I was quickly promoted into a position managing one of the company’s largest client accounts (a Fortune 100 energy company). I became well acquainted with the company’s management team, investment bankers, legal counsel and auditors. I enjoyed working with the company as they executed growth strategies through the issuance of public equity and debt and I helped the company defend itself against hostile takeovers and SEC inquiries. While continuing to work full time, I enrolled part-time and in the evenings into graduate school and received my MBA. After graduating, I decided to take a risk and pursue a career in recruiting, which is an excellent fit. I continue to consult with my clients and their organizations to meet critical objectives.
I like that no two searches or clients are the same and I love that I learn every day – sometimes it’s about a new industry, sometimes a new position. I love using my intuition and bringing people together and I love the challenge of a difficult search. My clients have given me complex search assignments in remote locations such as Nigeria and Angola and the experience has been invaluable and immensely rewarding.
Confident, intelligent, engaging people with a sense of humor.
I'd be an entrepreneur applying all of the skills I learned from search and put them to work in running my own business.
