Location: Culver City, CA

Recruiting specialty: Apparel Merchandising, Design & Technical Design

I became a recruiter because … After being recruited by JBCStyle for a temporary role with a fashion tradeshow! I was so inspired by their knowledge of and passion for the business that I eagerly pursued the opportunity to join the team and work under/learn from Jamie. I love having the ability to utilize my passion for art, culture and bringing people together while being constantly challenged by an ever-evolving industry.

Favorite designer: Alexander McQueen

Favorite place in Los Angeles: Weekend mornings on the beach in Santa Monica with my toes in the sand and a hot cup of coffee

Best interview tip: Show your enthusiasm, preparedness and sense of professionalism:  research the company, have questions in mind and never speak poorly about a previous employer.

Favorite accessory: A little “joie de vivre”

Sweet or salty: Chocolate chip cookies with fleur de sel. It’s all about harmony.

In my spare time I … Attend and support local fashion events as well as music and art shows, hike the canyons of Malibu and explore the vast culinary offerings of LA

Fashion or Beauty Tip: Style comes before comfort. To the ladies out there who, like me, stand at or over six feet tall — go on and rock those 4 inch heels

Favorite item in my closet: The Burberry Hooded Duffle Wool Coat that got me through a few extremely cold winters in upstate NY & Boston!

Restaurant I would recommend: Pub and Kitchen in Philadelphia, PA — My favorite place in the States, and I’ve lived in/traveled to quite a few.

Favorite quotes:

“your life is your life.
know it while you have it.
you are marvelous.
the gods wait to delight
in you.”
