I received my Bachelor’s Degree from University of Southern California (Fight On!) and then became a food truck driver and manager for a waffle dessert company in Pasadena, CA called Waffles de Liege. After 3 years, I felt that I wasn’t doing anything fulfilling and realized that I wanted to make an impact and difference in people’s lives. I left the industry and spoke to friends and family about the next career. They had mentioned recruiting and how it can change a person’s a life, as well as make a difference in the proper field. I went to various recruiting networking events and created my position with a start up called FabFitFun via their “create your job” submission. Impressed by my background, they hired me as an intern and then converted me full time into a Recruiting Coordinator. From there, I went to Robert Half for half a year for legal recruiting, and then a smaller tech recruiting agency called Strategic Employment Partners for Technical Sourcing. With minimal sourcing knowledge and only 7 months into the company, I received the 2017 Recruiter of the Year Award. I was then transferred to their New York branch, and once again received the 2018 Recruiter of the Year Award. I now find myself for the first time in an in house Technical Sourcer position with an awesome team, product, and company vision I can truly be behind.
Outside of work, I love to sing with friends and family via covers online and sometimes karaoke (was in choir when I was 10 years old all the way up to 19, and also trained formally), eating a lot (trying new restaurants and cooking), watching WWE/UFC/anything entertaining, play Dance Dance Revolution (used to compete), and just having a good ole time with friends and family.
I’m excited to help grow out the teams here in Diffbot, and can’t wait for what the future holds for all of us.
