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

My role is to drive positive results at our clients by creating meaningful experiences for our consultants. Essentially, I connect talented people with companies in need of their skills!

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

I have a blend of experience including finance, recruiting, business development and military service that I believe can benefit all those I work with.  My goal is to draw upon areas from each of these experiences to create an unparalleled level of service for all my business partners.

How do you achieve business outcomes? 

By identifying the interests and goals of our consultants and clients first.  In doing so, I can align the right talent to the needs of our clients while achieving results that are beneficial for everyone.

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

Growing up in a family that moved frequently, I learned to place significant value on relationships. I believe that valuing and helping people is at the core of any type of successful relationship, personal or professional.

How would your friends describe you?

Outgoing, genuine, fun-loving, and funny (I hope)!

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