San Francisco, CA

A recruiting manager and talent acquisition professional with over 20 years of experience recruiting in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. Completed my second bachelor's degree in information systems, complimenting an MBA degree. Continually building professional network and candidate pipeline of software engineers and technical talent via social recruiting strategies, networking, attending local technical MeetUp presentations and conferences,

I host and moderate four major LinkedIn communities: Eclipse, Ruby-on-Rails, Java User Group[JUG], and Bay Area Technical Recruiters Society [BATRS]) and contribute and promote many other software engineering MeetUp events, foundations, ecosystems, and online communities.

With the belief that we should use technology to prove ROI, status, and productivity of recruiting strategy, I am very experienced with applicant tracking systems and related reports that allow hiring principles to view the status of submittals and job requirements via a real-time cloud-based application. My experience includes recruiting for immediate job requirements as well as generating career interest from passive candidates in order to generate a pipeline of qualified technical talent.

I have the ability and knowledge to contribute and participate in programming communities hosted by Microsoft (MDN), Oracle Technology Network, Google’s Code, Microstrategy, and others - because I am NOT perceived as a "headhunter" or recruiter... - I'm a software engineer and I leverage this status for purposes of developing a pipeline of passive candidates and individuals interested in leveraging introductions into professional business relationships that will last careers (not just immediate employment or business needs.)

Specialties: Technical Recruiting and Human Resource Services - specializing in staffing strategies, employer branding, and resource augmentation for start-up software and web services companies in the San Francisco Bay Area and Silicon Valley
