Recruiting – Why It Is Great? The opportunity to place great people into great jobs that are a better fit. Happy employees are successful employees, and successful employees make good companies great.

Favorite Recruiting Moment – Finding someone who is hungry for more and realizing their expertise is exactly what our client is looking for. Presenting and placing candidates who are a “perfect fit” and watching them excel in their new role.

Beyond My Desk – I enjoy hunting and fishing, as well as great BBQ, making homemade jerky, and grilling out whenever South Dakota weather permits.

Giving Back – I try to live life by the Golden Rule. Communication is both easier and more effective when you are able to see the world through another person’s eyes. I believe in volunteering for causes that will lead to a better world for our children than the one in which we inherited.

Thank You To – Family, friends, and teachers – all of whom helped shape me into who I am, and continue to encourage me to be all that I can be.

Coffee Preference – Splash of cream from grass fed cattle.
