I became a recruiter because … people needed me


Favorite designer: Changes seasonally

Celebrity crush: Henrik Lundqvist

Interview horror story: Don’t hit on your interviewer. Don’t put your feet up on the interviewer’s desk. Don’t be an hour late. If you must sneeze please turn away.

Best interview tip: Don’t forget to SMILE!

If I could be an animal I would be … A Koala.  But the ferocious kind.

Dream vacation: Anywhere secluded and on a beach

Sweet or salty: Pretzel M&Ms

In my spare time I … Work  more.  Sleep.  Shop.

Fashion or Beauty Tip:  Zipper stuck?  Run a pencil eraser along the teeth of the zipper.  Deodorant stains?  Those gray foamy things that come on hangers will take it right out.  Red wine stain on your fav dress?  White wine will make it seem like it never happened.

Favorite quote: “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain
