Technology and Sales Recruiter
Greater San Diego Area
Who I am professionally...
I am a Technical and Sales Recruiter at PetDesk in San Diego. My career trajectory truly started in college working part-time at the UCSD Telephone Outreach Program, calling Alumni, parents, and friends to raise support for the school, spending my last two years as the Supervisor. As graduation approached, and as someone who never knew exactly what they wanted to pursue as a career, I found a calling in Recruiting, helping other people who do know how to best utilize their passions and skill sets. After two incredible years with Proven Recruiting as a Full-Desk Technical Recruiter working with candidates and clients, I've since moved on to help a startup whose mission is near and dear to my heart at PetDesk. If you're interested in helping us generate 10 million additional years of pet life over the next ten years, don't hesitate to reach out!

Who I am personally...
In a word: passionate. I value my relationships, both personally and professionally, going to great lengths to build the trust needed to foster the genuine, honest, and long-term connections that make life worthwhile! I'm also an avid sports follower, where my "passion" is perceived more as true "fanaticism," or simply crazy. I follow nearly every major sport with a favorite team in each, including American football (Chargers), baseball (Dodgers), basketball (Lakers), hockey (Kings), and my favorite sport, REAL football a.k.a. soccer (LA Galaxy in the MLS, Chelsea in England and Europe, and USA or Germany internationally). I also enjoy listening to music, mostly alternative and classic rock, with The Rolling Stones being my favorite band of all time, but love Fleetwood Mac, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Pink Floyd, The Black Keys, Arctic Monkeys, among others. I like to read, hike, camp, ski/snowboard, and actively follow topics and events in politics, history and philosophy (my subjects of study at UC San Diego).
