As a seasoned recruiter, I specialize in helping startups build and scale their teams for long-term success. With over 30 co-founders successfully matched with their partners and 20+ co-founding CEOs placed, I have partnered with over 40 startups to help them grow their C-suites and teams. My 98.7% retention rate speaks to the effectiveness of my approach.

As a mentor, I focus on creating durable recruitment processes for founders. My guidance includes developing talent pools, creating efficient systems, effective interviewing, employer branding, leadership and team building, strategic planning, and execution.

By providing founders with the tools they need to build and maintain strong teams, I help position them for long-term success.

Mentorship motivation

  • I like to learn about industries and new businesses
  • I want to give back to the startup ecosystem and entrepreneurs coming up
  • I want to make new connections for myself and/or the organization I represent
  • I want to scout for new opportunities in engaging as an advisor or for a board seat

I am passionate about helping startups build strong and successful teams. With nearly 10 years of experience building teams and placing C-level execs with startups, I have seen firsthand the challenges that founders face when trying to grow their businesses. I want to use my experience to help other founders avoid common pitfalls and build durable recruitment processes that will allow them to scale and thrive.

Of course, as a recruiter, I also see the potential for monetization in my mentorship work.
