A Little About Me

The one piece of advice I always give to employers or job seekers is: 

Employers Advice: Every hire is critical to a company’s growth trajectory and success. Without a consistent pipeline of top talent to tap into, great ideas won’t translate to great companies. This has everything to do with the fact that a top performer (top 5-10%, say) has a significantly more profound impact on an organization. My client service focuses on identifying these top performers and assessing whether their core skill-set and personality traits fit with your needs.

The favorite part of my job is: 

Wake up in the Innovation District, have coffee at Voltage, a stop off at MassChallenge or TechStars to mentor a budding start-up on recruiting / hiring before I head to our offices on Route 128 to speak with those seeking new ways to disrupt the way we work and live all day long. This is why I love being a part of the Boston Tech ecosystem and recruiting in the space for WinterWyman. WW is the Largest Executive Recruiting Firm in New England and our NE Software practice has a combined 125 years of local software recruiting experience. I have deep relationships within the VC, start-ups, technology companies and communities, have been a perennial top ten recruiter with WW and I love working with candidates passionate about what they do. Plain and simple, my talent is finding software engineering talent!

My personal interests are: 

Waterman - surfing, sailing, stand up paddle boarding, skiiing
