Meet Our Team

With over 15+ years of experience in Leadership Development and Performance HR Management, I’m an accomplished team leader with a passion for empowering businesses and professionals to grow and achieve organizational and individual goals.  Through my work in multinational consulting companies such as PwC and Booz Allen Hamilton, in executive positions within the banking sector in the United States, Venezuela and Mexico, I have navigated multiple organizational and country cultures exposing me to international talent development best practices from around the globe.

Pursuing my drive for matching A+ managers/ leaders with A+ companies made me join Patrice & Associates.  As a Washington DC Franchise Owner and Executive Recruiter for the Hospitality and Retail industry nationwide, I bring an in-depth understanding of businesses’ human resource priorities that allow them to excel financially and exceed their targets.  My hands-on approach and attitude allow me to effectively coach talented professionals to find their dream job and advance toward their specific career goals. By tapping into my multicultural and bilingual (English and Spanish) background, I offer clients a keen understanding of today’s culturally diverse job market, and acute sensitivity to guide strong candidates to be successful in the hospitality industry.

My DC office is blended into a nationwide network of recruiters who are part of more than 130 Patrice & Associates offices across North America. Patrice & Associates is the number one recruitment organization in the hospitality industry.  We facilitate cutting-edge approaches, systems leveraging a data base of over 500,000 candidates and more than 1,000+ open positions to fill at any given time; with hundreds of restaurants management, hotel, casino and other hospitality jobs perfect for advancing most any career… we are your best choice for finding the career future you are seeking or talented candidate you need for your business.

My Approach

I decided to join P&A because the company is the largest and most recognized Hospitality Recruiting Agency Nationwide and the most reliable to find top talent/ candidates in the Hospitality and Retail industries. P&A represents what I was looking for in core values: Trust, Respect, Excellence and Teamwork.

As a P&A Franchise Owner, I will be able to help your company or you as a candidate meet your needs and goals and help people to live a better life.

As a client or candidate, your time is valued, and I am capable of offering you strong, quality service that allows you to rely on me to responsibly find or fill any position, manager-level and above, that you or your company need.

I will become your Staffing Partner instead of being a regular recruiter, which you can find everywhere. I have a close relationship with my clients and with my A+ candidates having conversations with them regularly and helping them right away when they need me.

I am here for you, Reach for it…
