Who I Am

I was born and raised in Peoria, IL and attended college at Illinois State University. I got my Bachelor’s degree in broadcast journalism and went into the working world at my local television station as a producer. I’ve always enjoyed talking people and after feeling like the television world wasn’t for me, I made my way down to Dallas, TX in pursue of warmer weather and big city opportunities!

What I Do

I found myself working at r2 Technologies as a Junior IT Technical Recruiter and now I’ve been promoted and working as a IT Technical Recruiter at r2 for the last four years in Dallas! I enjoy helping people and helping them find new opportunities in the North Dallas area, partly because that is how I got started myself!

Now that I’ve some recruiting experience under my belt, I know and understand the new opportunities in the North Dallas area and look forward to helping anyone find their next IT role!
You can find me at local Dallas meet ups, IT events and the annual Technology Ball too!

Fun Facts About Me

I enjoy Dallas brunches and I do judge brunch restaurants based on how good their bacon tastes!
I love to travel and if you bring up anything England related, I may just talk your ear off!
I love to play sand volleyball and kickball in my local Dallas Sports league. My kickball team won the league championship last year!
