Out of Office

You can find me outside the office hanging with my family – hopefully doing something outdoors!

named my dog Penny because I loved the name and she is the same color as a penny!

Three countries I’d love to visit are New Zealand, Norway or revisit other parts of Japan. 

My favorite vacation spot is a beautiful beach or a ski mountain. 

My favorite Cardea Group memory is rejoining after several years hiatus. 

I’d describe my clients as knowledgeable and determined to find the right candidate for the job!

I admire my candidates most when they don’t give up and find their dream jobs!
