“Why do I love what I do? If you know me, you know I’m the no nonsense type. However, every time I’m asked to go and find the ‘unicorn’, I’m promised an incredible experience talking to the most talented people on the continent and really getting to know what makes them tick! If they exist, we’ll find them and I just love the thrill when a great candidate and client meet for the first time and see a glimpse of the future relationship they will have. People really are astounding when you allow them to truly thrive in an fantastic work place… these are the types of businesses and people I love to work with and connect to each other.”
