Senior Director, Talent

To me, delivering the elite experience means:
Working with passion and enthusiasm. To me the elite experience is our exceptional level of service. It is going the extra mile to have a clear understanding of my client’s and candidate’s needs and to ensure the proper match. It is ensuring that the process is smooth, well communicated and done with the utmost respect in a professional environment. It is representing my clients and candidates with accuracy and class. It is also making the experience fun and enjoyable.

Clients and candidates would describe me as:
Professional, passionate, enthusiastic, a good listener, energetic.

What excites me most about the work I do is:
In my job, I have the opportunity to interact with successful and interesting clients. It is a privilege. I also really enjoy consulting and guiding them during a key transition period of their career and lives.

During my down time, you are most likely to find me:
Spending time with my lovely new daughter, family and friends. I am also very active and enjoy being in the country. I love to snowboard, waterski, cycle, and more.
