I have a zest for life, and I love going the extra mile for my clients and candidates. I am curious by nature and will dig deep to explore anything below the surface. Married to a Geologist and my business partner, I have a passion for collecting crystals and precious stones from around the world. I purposely look for those unique gems in every person and situation. No stone will be left unturned when I meet with you.
I have a degree in LIFE. I bring many years of real-life experience. In my previous career I was a security investigator searching for the bad guys to solve crimes. I transitioned from criminal investigations to the staffing industry where I search for people where I can make a positive difference by placing them in rewarding careers.
I am a seasoned Senior Recruiter with many years of experience placing mid to senior level candidates across the nation. I love the thrill of the hunt and approach every search with enthusiasm and commitment. I have been referred to as a “People Whisperer” due to my gentle nature of creating a safe and comfortable environment where people can be transparent without judgement. Whether you are a company or a candidate you will be treated with utmost respect as I act on your behalf as your Trusted Advisor.
“We hired Susan to help us with our search for a Corporate Director for our organization. I have worked with many recruiters throughout my career. I can say without hesitation that Susan is the hardest working and most professional recruiter I have ever had the privilege of working with. She is organized, does what she says she is going to do, completes due diligence beyond what is expected, is personally vested and cares about the long-term picture. At no time in the process did I ever feel pressured from Susan to hire a candidate. She presented the information, offered her input and allowed us to make our own decision. At times I forgot she was hired to help us as she felt more like a member of our team. Candidly, she worked diligently and expeditiously. Gary F.”
"When I was seeking a new CEO executive position there were feelings of both excitement and nervousness. Susan was terrific at helping me navigate that transition. She always treated me with respect and was extremely transparent with my options and with her feedback. I'm in my dream job now, managing a well-respected and successful nonprofit agency and I owe much to Susan for helping me find my open door. I'm very comfortable recommending her to help transitioning professionals who want more out of their careers. "
"Susan has been the best recruiter I've worked with hands down! Her intuition, professionalism & sincere need for a positive match for bother employer and candidate surpassed all my expectations. Connect with Susan for your solutions & searches. You will be glad you did! "
”Job hunting – often arduous, unpleasant, strenuous, challenging and sometimes even painful. However, the process is NONE of those things when you have Susan in your corner! Susan focuses on the long-term fit of the person, the role and the company. She delves deep into candidate's preferences and gives authentic feedback about every detail down to how to nail the interview. Her credibility shines through from the very first step, and you immediately feel reassured knowing she is genuinely concerned with your happiness in the new role rather than meeting a quota for her bottom line. How do I know all of this? Susan personally placed me in a director role that was an impeccable fit. She was an absolute pro at reading the circumstances and discerning what she could do to assist. I've said it since then and will say it again -- she's amazing, and I highly recommend her! ”
“I met Susan while looking for a change in my career. Of the recruiters I've worked with in the past, Susan is the only one who took the time to get to know me personally and provide candid council above and beyond just qualifying me for her openings. She is a dedicated professional who will hold you accountable to who you can be and works very hard to ensure she finds the right fit.”
