Leadership Model

Developed with neuroscientist Dr. Robert Cooper, the inception of the Y Scouts Leadership Model is still the proven model used today.

Hiring on Purpose

We don’t do placements. We align leaders and work. Placement is a cold top-down approach, focusing on resumes and filling empty seats. By hiring on purpose, we take the broken vertical model and flip it on its side, creating horizontal alignment between leader and company. We bridge the gap between business’ purpose and a leader’s passions and strengths. It is purposeful and methodical and driven by empathy. It’s why we exist.

As one of the few Arizona-natives, my background started by wearing the Xavier gator plaid skirt, then off to the University of Arizona as a wildcat (bear down!). I got my ‘accountancy’ feet wet in the Audit department of the Deloitte (and Touche at the time) Phoenix office. I recently spent 6.5 years at Keap (formerly Infusionsoft), ending as the Manager of Commissions and Accounts Receivable. When I became a people leader, that is when I found fulfillment and a deeper “why” of what I can bring to a team. I must care; it’s just in my bones.

Y Scouts has felt like home since day one. Our purpose of connecting people to work that matters speaks to me on a personal level, as I truly believe one can be happy in their job if you find the right mutual fit that goes deeper than a skill set and job description. I am tickled that a role in finance and people exists. As the Director of Finance and People, I work diligently to lead the Growth Enablement efforts of Y Scouts. I support our fearless crew members to crush goals in a delightful, positive, trusting environment, so our people don’t have to worry about the finances. I strive for a smooth, hiccup-free experience during each search, while building upon the already influential culture that is deeply rooted in our four core values. I feel genuinely blessed, honored, and humbled to work alongside such intelligent, eager to learn, fun individuals. It brings me great joy to know we are helping top-quality leaders find their home in a purpose-driven workplace, just as I have.
