Meet Our Team

I’ve always had a passion for Food and Hospitality. It started while working at restaurants putting myself through college.  I worked nights, weekends, summers, and learned about cooking, serving, and bar. I loved the energy and the creative nature of the business, along with the people and personalities.

I had every intention of continuing my education by entering Graduate School in Hotel and Restaurant management. My direction turned when I was offered a chance to work as a clerk, on Wall Street, in the World Trade Center for Robinson Humphrey. I became a trader and my career was set.

I was a Senior Equity Trader/Managing Director with expertise in Capital market making. Vast experience in building a brand in multiple trading sectors. History in y/o/y revenue growth while building customer relationships and confidence. Lead Managed IPO and Secondary trading expertise as Senior Trader.

I now enter my second career and am excited about the opportunity to work as a Hospitality Recruiter in an industry I love. I am looking forward to transferring the relationship building and people skills, I learned on Wall Street, to the Hospitality Industry through recruiting.  I hope to work with clients providing them with outstanding talent to accomplish their goals, and work with recruits helping them meet their needs whether it’s time, family, or monetary.

I’m excited to work hard to help both clients and recruits maximize their business and personal goals.

I know this will be a rewarding journey and I’m ready to:

Reach for it.

    Tom was very professional and responsive. He had great advice for the interview process and helped me practice patience as I waited to hear if I was going to be offered the job or not.
