scaled recruiting Operations globally

(2007 - 2015)   I joined Hershey in 2007 as a Technical Recruiter.  Over the course of my tenure, I was promoted 5 times in 8 years.  Prior to leaving, I was leading Talent Acquisition Operations across in-house, contract and RPO teams of up to 30 people in the US, Canada, Mexico, and Asia.

Founded & Sold a Recruiting software & Consulting COMPANY

(2015 - 2017)  In October of 2015, I left Hershey to pursue an idea that I had for an interview software platform and to broaden my skillset.   The platform I built allowed Recruiters to develop interview guides in 3-5 minutes for any position.  This empowered Hiring Managers to ask better interview questions and hire better people.   After two years, HireBar was acquired by RIVS Inc - the leading video interview company in the industry

Led A team of consultANTs advising TA Leaders on recruiting technology innovation

(2017 - 2018)   After HireBar was acquired, I joined Cielo, the world's leading RPO, to run their Technology Enablement team.  This team implemented and supported a wide variety of HR technologies across 100+ clients globally.    In the short time that I was with Cielo, I served as a technology advisor to recruiting leaders and built program management strategies to scale our services globally across the ATSs and CRMs that we supported.
