Lead Recruiter

What work / project are you proudest of and what impact has it made?

It is really hard for me to narrow in on one project, but overall I am most proud of the number of outstanding individuals I’ve been able to bring onto the team at Inspire11. There is nothing as satisfying as looking around a room and seeing the faces of people that you brought in the door, watching them get promoted, and seeing this company change their career trajectory forever.

What does “inspiring a better tomorrow for all” mean to you?

Inspiring a better tomorrow for all means bringing in the marginalized and raising up those who did not have the opportunity. This is not just through our service in the community or how we treat our internal teams, but also in how we build solutions to make sure that they are serving the greater good and not discriminating against any group of people.

Product Development Consultant

How has your background shaped how you think, relate to others, and conquer challenges?

I am a consistent learner. I read as much as I can, follow groundbreakers in the product space, learn while I’m working, and always reflect on how I can do better. I worked in sales a long time ago, and that combined with the design thinking approach of starting with empathy helps me to relate to others. I find solving problems to be exciting, so it’s in my nature to want to solve complex problems.

What does “inspiring a better tomorrow for all” mean to you? 

It means that we don’t have to follow the status quo. We can turn crazy ideas into reality that will benefit us all. It means that we can do great work that benefits us and our clients, which helps their customers and it’s a win-win-win.
