How would you describe your role, purpose or the outcomes you drive?

I give my clients access to a proven consulting resource when they need someone most to drive their business outcomes.

How has your previous work experience prepared you for your role with Salo?

I started my career as an auditor for Boulay and I’ve spent nearly five years specializing in direct-hire placement at Salo. With a CPA background, I understand my client’s needs and our consultant’s capabilities, allowing me to be able to make the right match.

How do you achieve business outcomes?

Every day, I put my best effort forward. I invest time in building relationships and understanding my client’s needs so that I can be ready with the right consultant when the time comes.

What impact did your upbringing have on the way you approach your work and life?

Starting at age 5, I’ve worked for my family’s auction business. Working along side my four brothers, parents and grandparents in a family business has laid the foundation for my work ethic and ability to operate effectively as a team.

How would your friends describe you?

The person who gets the party started on the dance floor! In all seriousness, they describe me as being goal-driven, optimistic, outgoing, connected and community oriented.

List three interesting things about you, but only one of them needs be true.

I’ve completed an Ironman. I’m an auctioneer. I have a black belt.

What is your favorite thing about working at Salo?

It’s more than just a job, working at Salo fulfills my need for connectivity and my passion for helping people get to where they want to be.
