My career in recruiting started in 1987 with a company called Weatherby Associates.  We specialized in the recruitment of healthcare professionals.  I quickly moved into phone recruiting and screening candidates for the Partners.  In 1989 I was recruited to a new firm called The Resource Group.  During the ten years I was there I helped it become the largest Executive Search Firm specializing in the Direct Marketing industry.  This is where my love of executive search really took off.  I started working with Creative, Merchandising, Marketing and Database professionals that were fun and exciting to talk to.  They were driven to succeed and never stood still.  I eventually took responsibility for all the operations, research and recruiting functions for the company.  I am a recruiter at heart and take great joy in working with my clients and candidates.

In 1999,  I co-founded Madison Executive Search and have enjoyed continuing to serve the needs of the marketplace now known as “Omni-Channel”.  We work with the best and brightest people in the industry and because of them I have never stopped enjoying the process of Executive Search.
