Passion for Talent | Well Connected | Spirited | Driven | Matchmaker
I founded People Stuff in September 2000, which specializes in recruiting services. I am an independent contractor; all services being provided solely by me. I'm a matchmaker! I know it may sound cliche but it's true. It gives me tremendous satisfaction to match the right candidate with the right company. Each search is handled with kid gloves, providing both candidate and client with compassion, professionalism, and integrity. I have experience servicing companies in many different industries and of all sizes--startup, small, mid, large (including Fortune 10). In addition, I have experience recruiting talent for company-wide positions, including technology.
Prior to starting People Stuff, I was Vice President of Human Resources, Recruiting and Administration for the Iwin Corporation, a Los Angeles-based Internet company, where I led the company's organizational growth from 35 employees to more than 125 employees within a 6-month period, resulting in Iwin being successfully sold for nearly $100 million. I provided leadership on staffing, benefits, organizational planning and compensation. In addition, I provided counseling on all employee relations issues and employment law. I was also responsible for general workplace enhancement, where I instituted several well-received employee programs, including company retreats, a fitness and wellness program, daily on-site catering, and more.
Earlier in my career, I served as the Regional Human Resources Manager of the Einstein/Noah Bagel Corporation, the Golden, Colorado-based bagel company, where I provided human resources support for more than 800 employees and administered training programs. I also served as the Director of Recruitment and Administration for The Haffner Group Inc., a legal recruiting firm in Los Angeles, specializing in the placement of attorneys with boutique to international law firms, and as a recruiter for The Lucas Group in Irvine, CA, where I began my career in recruiting, specializing in Sales & Marketing.
I earned my B.A. Degree in Sociology from California State University, Long Beach. While I reside in Redondo Beach, CA, I am available for projects nationwide.
