Recruitment Consultant

Originally from New York, I moved to Las Vegas to follow my dreams of being involved in the gaming industry in 2007.

I am experienced in leading and building successful teams in multiple industries. I officially transitioned from leadership into recruiting in 2016 and have experience in corporate and agency environments.

Pentasia is the perfect opportunity to align my professional experience with personal passions. Knowing the importance of branding, I put an emphasis on making sure the client and candidate both have an equally amazing experience.
