Introduction
Professional Recruiting Summary

I GET IT.

WHY?

I know the design and marketing (print and web) community because I've lived in it since the beginning of my career (around the time dinosaurs roamed the earth; you know, before Facebook and iPhones).

I understand what it's like to be a freelancer and what it's like to be a hiring manager under deadline, because I've been both.

I also understand budgetary constraints, ROI, impossible project time-lines and staff needs since I've run my own companies.

I've been helping Chicago-area businesses run smoother and make more money by providing them with the exact Talent they need, temporary or full-time, for over 20 years.

I get a kick out of helping people find jobs and helping companies find people. It's my thing - a born matchmaker.

Lastly, I don't rest on my laurels. I continue to learn, get 'out there' in the community and get involved in the same groups and events that you do. I love this industry.

THAT'S WHY.
