Talent Acquisition Manager
FOOD PATRONUS | Detroit-style pizza
EARLY DAYS | Born and raised in southern Michigan
EDUCATION | Attended Michigan State University where I studied Psychology and hosted a downtempo electronic radio show called “The Afterglow.” Returned a few years later for a Master’s in Management, Strategy + Leadership. I'm likely to ask what your Myers-Briggs personality type is.
BACKGROUND CHECK | At 16, my parents made me get a job at my local pizzeria which turned into 10 years of working my way through every position in that restaurant, building a culture, opening a few locations, and learning the ins and outs of leadership and hospitality.
Visited Austin a few years back for ACL Festival, and fell in love with the energy of the city. After finishing up grad school, I sold most of my things and moved here without a job, knowing it would all work out. Found this cute little Italian spot in my neighborhood—Il Brutto—where I began as a Server. Learned a lot about wine, how nice people are in this city, and how to pronounce "Cacio e Pepe." I was promoted to Service Manager and then transitioned into Talent Acquisition at New Waterloo HQ.
WHY I LOVE NW | Being surrounded by inspiring + talented people who set the industry standard.
HOSPITALITY PHILOSOPHY | Hustle and heart will set you apart.
SUPER POWER | Being really nice all of the time!
