What I love most about my job is the excitement of finding the perfect candidate for the specific job I am staffing for and the gratitude of the candidate for helping them find a job they love. 


Fun times for me are spending my weekends with my family, especially my granddaughter. We do special things together which I hope she will cherish forever.  My passion for photography inspires me because I can capture many memories that will last a lifetime.
