Reason for starting
I have always considered myself an entrepreneur. When I left my last full time position in 2008, I decided I had the skills, knowledge and contacts to build my own boutique recruiting agency. With over 10 years of recruiting experience, I knew I could do it on my own. I wanted to have the flexibility in my life to create my own hours and pick and choose my clients.

Biggest Success
To stay in business through hard econmic times.

What is your top challenge and how have you addressed it?
Staying focused and managing my time. I schedule my time daily and balance my work with my personal life.

Who is your most important role model?
My mother.
