I was born and raised in the fast paced Washington, DC area. Sharp and driven, I excelled in both my lower and higher education receiving many scholarships, honors, and recognitions including National Honor Society Membership, Dean's List recognition, President's List recognition, and Dr. Harry Harding Jr. awards.
Most recently as a recruiting and human resources professional, I've worked for some of the most well known and respected companies in the world as well as their respective industries including: Bank of America, Nestle, SolarCity, and Walgreens Boots Alliance.
I first began my career in administration, steadily working my way up from Filing Assistant to Office Manager. While in administration, I worked for primarily non-profits including large non-profits: The United Methodist Church and The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). After spending several years in office management it was time for a change. Though, I had experience with doing recruiting and human resources work as an office manager; it was time to branch out into full-time recruiting.
Again with my sharpness, determination, and drive I quickly rose in my recruiting career from Recruiter to positions of recruiting leadership including Senior Recruiter and Talent Advisor.
I have a passion for speaking about leadership and purpose, both of which have been instrumental in my career success.
Purpose and leadership go hand and hand for organizational success. When an organization knows their purpose, there is clarity in the vision and path of the organization. It also leads to clarity of the function of those involved in it. Leadership directs and guides the people and activities that carry out that vision.
I help organizations understand their purpose and how it corresponds with their employees' work and lives. I also, give leaders strategies on how to effectively lead.
