Recruiting comes down to two things: the ability to help individuals further their careers and the ability to help companies find that shining star to bring them to the next level. It’s like finding the perfect piece in the puzzle.
Having the right employees in the right positions is essential to making any business flow. It is my job to be in the background, pushing that flow and solving puzzles. How cool is that?
I earned my college degree from Northern Illinois University with a double major in Spanish and Family & Individual Development. I thought I would get a job, get a few years of experience and go on to get my Master’s Degree in School Social Work. When I started interviewing for Social Work related jobs, I found that I wasn’t that interested in any of them.
I posted my resume on MilwaukeeJobs.com, and the Branch Manager from another area staffing company called me. My first job was working as a Placement Coordinator in light industrial, working heavily with the Spanish speaking population. I was then recruited to an area manufacturer. There, I had the opportunity to apply my recruiting knowledge to growing their workforce from 450 employees to 700 employees. At the same time, I was trained as an HR Generalist. I went on to work for another area company as an HR Generalist with a strong mix of all HR aspects. I started feeling like I missed the strong strategic side of HR, recruitment, so I went back into recruiting and haven’t looked back.
I have been with Elite since early 2015 and absolutely love it. I am very grateful to be backed by a strong, growing organization where I have the tools and am trusted as that strategic partner.
My greatest professional achievement was earning my PHR.
This is something that has always been a huge part of my life. Currently, I am an advisor for my sorority’s (Alpha Omicron Pi) collegiate chapter at UW-Milwaukee. I also do countless walks and support different causes like the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, the Wisconsin Human Society, and the Milwaukee Jewish Federation.
I truly love spending time with family and friends. It’s all about the people that are around me, more than the activities. My husband and I have a chocolate lab, Dalton, who is the dog of my life. I really love travelling. I have been fortunate to study abroad in Spain and travel to 35 states and several different countries.
