1. What is your role at Odyssey Information Services & how long have you been here?
I’ve been a recruiter at Odyssey since April 2001, just a year after Odyssey started. In fact, I was the second recruiter hired. I initially started off as a full desk recruiter, but as the company grew I swayed more towards full-time recruiting with a focus on IT.
2. What drew you to become a recruiter?
By accident – I answered an ad in the paper for an entry-level HR trainee. I was a fresh graduate at the time.
3. Where are you from?
Illinois originally- it was my backup state to go back to in case recruiting was not for me.
4. What are some of your personal interests/hobbies?
Yoga and OrangeTheory fitness- mostly staying fit.
5. Favorite place to travel?
I’ve been to Hawaii three times, but also enjoy the Black Hills in South Dakota and Colorado. I basically like beaches and mountains.
6. Personal facts? Pets? Kids? Etc.
I have three dogs and a bird for pets. I have two boys, a senior at Sam Houston State and a Sophomore at South Dakota School of Mines.
