About

If you’ve been referred to this page by someone we know in common or randomly through a search on Google or LinkedIn, you may be wondering what qualifies me to support, advise or assist you. Here are a few of the things that I believe differentiate me:

Reason #1 Sales and Recruiting Veteran

Growing up in customer service working for my parents at our family office supply company after years of helping at my grandparent’s country grocery store, I have spent most of my life working for and with entrepreneurs. I got into creative staffing early in its inception with managers who made sure we learned to recruit and sell as consultants. These days I take pride in being the most seasoned creative recruiter in Atlanta with a design degree. I’ve also used my knowledge of sourcing to help business owners find customers as well as to teach job seekers how to more proactively manage their own job search and career development.

Reason #2 Diverse Background

I earned my BFA in Visual Communications/Graphic Design from Auburn University including 2 years in Auburn’s Architecture program with other significant study in Journalism and Marketing. After Auburn, I headed west to Denver where I earned a Master of Arts in Religion by applying design thinking to diversity, social justice and organizational/cultural change. Through AIGA, the professional association for design, I developed status as a community leader and participated in Harvard’s Business Perspective for Design Leaders. Since then, I’ve also studied long-form improvisational theater in Atlanta and Chicago as well as Product Management at General Assembly. I enjoy learning new things as much as I enjoy meeting new people, bridging diverse perspectives and innovating at the intersection of seemingly disparate ideas.

Reason #3 Who I Know

Malcolm Gladwell calls people like me connectors for having a truly extraordinary knack of making friends and acquaintances. People fascinate me so I know a diverse lot of them…from varied communities literally across the globe. And if I don’t know someone yet but need to, I know how to find them and can usually find a compelling reason to start a conversation.  It’s a skill that I was fortunate enough to turn into a lucrative career of sourcing and introducing people for mutually valuable exchanges.
