What made you want to work for ITAC?
Just by trial and error, I found my way into recruiting, and it’s something I really enjoy. Plus, if you like the company, everything else is so much easier. ITAC has such a great work environment and offers lots of opportunities for growth, which is exciting.
What are you most excited about/looking forward to in your new position?
I’m excited to expand my umbrella of skills, so to speak, and take on the new challenges. I’ve worked in recruiting before, but not in a staffing environment where the volume is so high. I’m eager to get started, put a little bit more on my plate and stretch myself further in this role.
What’s one thing you want candidates to know about you?
I want candidates to know that it’s a team process. It’s us helping candidates get to where they need to be.
What will your desk look like in six months?
My desk will still be organized, but I’ll have a few plants and other knick-knacks.
Who’s your biggest role model?
My mom is the coolest person I know and one of the strongest people I have ever met! She has made me who I am by pushing me to do more and not letting me give up.
What’s your favorite quote or saying?
“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one.” -George R.R. Martin
What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
Live life now! It’s so easy to get caught up in what tomorrow holds, that you forget to look around and appreciate where you are and who you are with NOW. You can still look forward to tomorrow and make your plans, but it makes your life so much better to appreciate where you are now. It’s like getting the good times while you’re still in the good times.
What are three words that describe you?
Compassionate. Imaginative. Organized.
What’s your favorite summer activity?
Hiking, camping or tubing down a river! Anything outdoorsy!
What’s something most people would be surprised to learn about you?
I’m the nerdiest person I know. I really enjoy reading, table top games, video games, etc.
Where’s your favorite spot to hangout in Birmingham?
My mom’s place on the river. It’s cool to just reset in nature and get away from the hustle and bustle.
Anything you want to add about family, pets, hobbies or personal life?
I recently got engaged to my high school sweetheart, Andrew. I have 2 cat children, Alistair and Aela, who are very spoiled. I’m also a craft-aholic!
