I have been incredibly lucky throughout my career. I have worked with great people, amazing brands and been able to make a difference because of the work I do. What I eluded me early on was an alignment between my personal work, and the purpose of the organization that I was at part of.
Over time, I found my place and my passion. Connecting people with companies, developing talent, and pushing leaders to grow and flourish. In 2002, I became one of the founding members of a small company called Jobing.com. Y Scouts co-founder, Brian Mohr, was there as well, and while he was driving operations and sales, I was focused on all things people. My time at Jobing anchored my passion for connecting great people and great companies, for building systems and processes, and for having a fanatical focus on the experience everyone has with a company’s brand. It also deepened my love of learning, affording me the opportunity to complete my MBA from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University, and earn my Coaching Certificate from Babson College.
I left in 2013, to explore the world of consulting and start my own venture (a retail bakery). Through that journey I came to realize the following: 1.) my true passion comes from doing things that result in helping people find work that matters, and helping companies find great people to accelerate their business, and 2.) I am at my best when I am working with, and around, a team of driven and passionate individuals who share a common goal. Today I am part of the Y Scouts Team, and couldn’t be more excited to be helping us and our clients grow.
