Though I grew up wanting to be a hotel manager, I quickly realized I enjoyed HR more when I took a class in college (Go Eastern Illinois!). Since then, I have primarily worked in recruitment roles. Outside of work, I love to travel and try new foods. At home, I have a 5-year-old tortoiseshell cat named Rue and a one-eyed betta fish named Cleo.
