Throughout my life I’ve been exposed to many Austinites from many walks of life. As an HR/Recruitment Director, I specifically seek ways to diversify my company’s team, sponsor and support organizations focused on underrepresented demographics, and build a culture and interview process of inclusivity. Through my childhood and adulthood I’ve spent significant time appreciating and learning about Austin’s diverse demographics and geography.
