Leaving a positive imprint…

I founded Imprint PDX in 2012 to fill a vital need for small companies in the Pacific Northwest who lack the benefit of an in-house recruiter, help recruiters who want to improve their time to fill, and mentor individuals looking to make a change in their career.

  • As a recruiting consultant, I serve my clients with the same energy and commitment that I provided to my past employers – overseeing the entire recruiting process from start to finish, promoting clients as employers of choice, and using my extensive network to strengthen candidate pools. With an average time-to-fill of 30 days, I get the job done.
  • As a career coach, I work you one-on-one to develop a more effective resume, strengthen your interview skills, increase your network, and assist you in navigating through career transitions.
  • As a writer, I’ve contributed to a variety of local career blogs including Mac’s List and Silicon Florist, write a career-focused column, 9 to 5, as part of my own blog, and have been interviewed by The Oregonian, Brazen Careers, and FiveSeed, along with contributing guest blog posts to other professional sites.

Experience
I bring 19+ years of diverse experience in Recruiting & HR, including software, apparel, publishing, nonprofit, manufacturing, government and environmental services, hold my BS in Human Resources Management, and obtained my Professional in Human Resources (PHR) certification in 2004.

Reputation
I have reputation for delivering high-caliber results within quickly evolving industries, partnering with hiring teams via retained search to create strategies for attracting, retaining and developing talent, and using my extensive and diverse personal, professional, and social networks to bring people and companies together. As a recruiter, I’ve worked in corporate, agency, and independent consulting roles for companies of all sizes, from 3 to 30,000+ employees. My clients know they’re getting a recruiter who won’t “sell” to them – I am genuinely passionate about what I do, with strong relationships in the community, high integrity and an ability to implement strong processes that both improve candidate experience and decrease time-to-fill.

Community Involvement
My life and career has always been about building relationships, partnering with local schools and nonprofits to create stronger relationships between the business, academic, and nonprofit communities.  I have volunteered extensively in the past with organizations including with Start Making A Reader Today (SMART) and The Portland Kitchen, and I donate a percentage of her monthly income to local nonprofits.

Sustainability
I walk the talk when it comes to sustainability, and it is shown frequently in my company business practices, as well as my lifestyle which includes obsessive gardening, exploring the world, photography, urban homesteading and living car-free. An avid writer, I blog regularly, interviewing those in the community, documenting my own efforts, and sharing my findings as I strive to implement small changes that make a big difference.
