My Story:

I grew up outside Atlanta and graduated from the University of Georgia with my Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Accounting.  I started my career as a CPA at EY in Atlanta. I really enjoyed learning about technical tax law, working with clients, and helping people understand a complex topic. I was progressively promoted while in Public Accounting and built a lot of great relationships. I was recruited by Deloitte to join their talent acquisition team, due to my ability to connect with others and passion for helping people with their career.


After getting a taste for this type of work, I quickly realized that I’d be happiest diving into the search business - so I joined a large recruiting firm. I can honestly say I haven't looked back on my decision as I'm now able to combine my experience in public accounting and technical knowledge of the finance & accounting field with my ability and passion for helping people with their careers. I learned a great deal about the basics of the industry, the rich company diversity in Chicago, and how I can truly help job seekers make great career moves. 

 

 

Why I decided to join Hirewell:

I came across Hirewell a year ago and was impressed with their consultative approach to recruiting.  While they had done some Finance and Accounting search throughout the years, I realized that helping them expand this practice was the ideal next step in my career.  The more I learned about Hirewell's culture, business model, and growth strategy, the more excited I became.  

 

Through the interview process, I met with the heads of each group and had the ability to have very open and honest conversations. This allowed me to understand the culture and people at Hirewell and determine that it would be a good fit for me - I joined the team in April of 2019! I realized that Hirewell was a place where I could really make my ideas into reality. Hirewell does an amazing job at hiring employees who are passionate about their fields and truly want to work together. I have had a wonderful experience creating something new here through honest collaboration and am looking forward to continuing to grow the division.

 

 

How we are different:

Our relationships run deep. We take the time to understand our clients, their business objectives, and how top talent can drive their success.  I’m excited to combine my deep understanding of Finance and Accounting with Hirewell’s client relationships and track record of success.
