Tell me about your first job?

My first job was working as a busser at a golf & country club in Salinas, CA. From there I worked many serving and bartending jobs before finding TERRA.

What other professions would you like to try?

Forensic Crime Scene Investigator. I love a good mystery!

If you could possess any super power, what would it be?

Incredible strength – as in Incredible Hulk strength!

What do you enjoy most about working in the staffing industry?

I love all the people I get to meet and talk to on a daily basis. All of my clients and candidates make my job great!

Best career advice you’ve ever received?

The best career advice I got came from simply watching my mother work. She worked nights as a waitress while attending college full-time and raising my brother and me. Just by watching her I learned I can accomplish anything if I work hard enough.
