Get To Know Me

A Little Bit About Myself

I am a Recruiter based on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii. For close to 20 years, I have connected outstanding talent with equally impressive companies. I advise companies on how to build high-performing teams and to meet staffing objectives through me working at RPO, corporate, search organizations, and her own proprietorship.

My Contributions

Often times I contribute to websites such as Career Addict, Fairygodboss, Medium and LinkedIn, and have been featured in hiring-related articles for Honolulu Civilbeat, Refinery29, and LinkedIn's Get Hired newsletter. I am a 7x International Best Selling Author on Amazon as a co-author of the "The Art of Leadership: Leading Confidently Through Any Season", released in December 2021.

I’ve Been Helping Create Positive Changes In People's Lives For Over 20 Years.
