I was born in NY (the oldest of 4 kids), grew up in Yonkers, went to LeMoyne College in upstate NY, sold pots and pans and skis and tennis rackets before moving to Hawaii and earning a MBA at the University of Hawaii in a cooperative program with the Japan American Institute of Management Science (JAIMS). I moved to Japan in 1995 and joined a Japanese recruiting firm. In 1999 I moved to an internet venture focused on net-based recruiting. Then in 2002 I launched my own headhunting firm. My life as a parent began in 2001 with the birth of my son and those parental responsibilities expanded in 2008 after my daughter was born. I am a Certified Personnel Consultant, a Board Member for the non-profit Tokyo English Lifeline and also an Adjunct Professor at Temple University teaching the Professional Development Strategies course for undergraduates to help them prepare for their careers.

You can find me on Linkedin and Facebook and Twitter and out and about in Tokyo.
