Can you share a little about yourself and your background?
I am a Rochester native; I grew up in Greece. I graduated from SUNY Brockport with a bachelor’s degree in Accounting. Early in my career I got involved with recruiting and really enjoyed it. I have about 15 years of experience on the agency side with an executive search firm and about 10 years of experience in the corporate side of recruiting, managing large groups of recruiters, setting up processes and engaging with clients.
