Hometown: Albuquerque, New Mexico
Born in New Mexico, but raised overseas, I was always fascinated to learn about people from different backgrounds than my own. Thanks to my father’s work with the US State Department, my life has been a whirlwind of travel to different countries. I have been lucky enough to live in a few interesting places, such as the Republic of Georgia, Belarus, Papua New Guinea, and Bangladesh. I’ve also been lucky enough to visit many more. I can safely say that my understanding of the world has never been quite the same after scuba-diving around remote islands, tasting exotic street food (scorpions, starfish, and spiders oh my!) and exploring remote mountain ranges. After moving back to the United States, completing high school, college, and a couple of internships, I found myself at a crossroads. What did I want to do from here?
When searching career sites online, I found a certification program that assisted with entering the staffing industry. It was an online course that introduced recruiting – including the challenges, the chance to meet and interact with a wide variety of people, and the potential financial reward. I was immediately intrigued and excited to try my hand at the process from the other side of the desk. Before I knew it, I was interviewing at the TruPath offices. The moment I walked in the door, I knew that this was definitely the opportunity I was looking for.
Being a part of a company as diverse as TruPath has indulged my love of meeting and working with interesting people. We team up with clients, candidates, and each other to achieve the best possible outcome for all parties involved.
Our emphasis on finding culturally aligned talent for our clients coincides with what I have learned during my travels overseas! The difference between being “in-tune” and “out-of-tune” with the local culture is the difference between success and failure. I’m looking forward to learning and growing, both professionally and personally, at TruPath.
“Trust is the cornerstone of commerce and society at large. It’s also a key element of success for individuals and companies alike.”
“Being a client advocate means keeping their best interest at heart. Maintain a focus on creating value for the client rather than simply trying to maximize profitability.”
“Community partnership to me is participating in fundraising and recreational events that either address an important social cause or serve the community. It’s also promoting local charities and social causes, which is a fundamental part of our corporate culture.”
“Learning doesn’t end when you achieve a degree, earn a promotion, or complete a certification course. Learning is a lifelong activity that is absolutely essential to success in one’s professional and personal lives.”
