In her career, she has worked with a variety of companies, from startups to Fortune 500 firms.

She's is an island girl with a D.C. brain and a West Coast address. When she's away from the recruiters desk, she's with family & friends enjoying a silly game night, watching cartoons with the kiddo (Sing is the current favorite), dreaming of mid-century modern decor, and telling a bad joke (she has horrible timing) Or hitting up the local coffee shop. Gotta stay caffeinated! She is a member of HSMAI, Association of Talent Acquisition Professionals, Hotel Executive Editorial Board, and eHotelier Contributor.
