Years of experience



As an experienced technical recruiter with over six years of expertise, I specialize in enhancing talent acquisition strategies through data-driven approaches. My career has focused on recruiting top-tier talent for innovative tech companies, with a particular emphasis on technical and hardware positions, cloud computing, AI/ML, and tax professionals. I leverage market research and talent trends to guide leadership and business groups in strategic recruiting and hiring practices. My passion lies in identifying the perfect fit for both candidates and organizations, and I thrive in dynamic and collaborative environments where I can apply my skills in cross-functional coordination, communication, and critical thinking. My professional journey includes roles such as Technical Recruiter for Microsoft, where I supported the Azure Core Team and increased hiring volume for technical positions, and Recruiter-Data Analyst for Intuit, where I performed data analysis to drive talent acquisition strategies. At Microsoft, I also served as a Technical Sourcing Recruiter, specializing in AR/VR and Mixed-Reality recruiting. My extensive knowledge spans various recruiting tools and platforms, including Workday, Beamery, Hiretual, and Power BI. Committed to continuous learning, I have successfully placed highly qualified candidates and consistently improved recruitment processes through innovative solutions and data analytics.

Best back-end engineers I've ever worked with...​

“I interviewed about a dozen different firms. DevsData LLC is truly exceptional – their backend developers are some of the best I’ve ever worked with. I’ve worked with a lot of very well-qualified developers, locally in San Francisco, and remotely, so that is not a compliment I offer lightly. I appreciate their depth of knowledge and their ability to get things done quickly. “
