Q: Can you tell us about your professional background and what brought you to Inside Talent?

I started my career in behavior therapy working with kids with autism at a day treatment center. When I had kids of my own, I stepped back from work for a few years to focus on raising them. When I was ready to get back into the workforce, I took a position with Stitch Fix, a digital/tech retailer, first as a stylist and then as a people manager. I loved the T/A & HR side of my role at Stitch Fix so I knew that was where I wanted to be focused in my next role. The timing worked out that Inside Talent was hiring at that time which is what ultimately landed me here! I'm so happy to have found such a great opportunity to work with great people.

Q: What is your favorite part about this job?

I love meeting new people every day and learning about different backgrounds. It's always fun to be able to facilitate putting someone into a new role that they are excited about.

Q: What is the most challenging part about this job?

Being able to gain an understanding of so many different industries and job titles -It's important in recruiting to be the expert on everything!

Q: What is one tip you would give someone just starting out in recruiting?

Get very good at taking notes!

Q: What do you like to do in your free time?

Travel! We love to travel as a family. My three daughters are all involved in sports so we spend a lot of our weekends attending games and practices but I also love to read, spend time at our family cabin, and go for walks with friends.

Q: If you could choose any other job or profession (regardless of talent and ability) what would it be any why?

Probably something in the arts - maybe ceramics? I was an Art History major and I always loved my fine arts classes.
