I grew up just outside of Washington DC, and attended Hofstra University in New York to study Psychology. During my time at University, I worked at organizations like Citizens Campaign for the Environment, and the Salvation Army’s Centre for Children, which were incredibly enlightening opportunities. Shortly after I graduated, I moved into NYC to pursue my career, working for 3 years in digital & print advertising, on the development of Disney Visa campaigns.
I joined Bloomberg in 2010, and started my career in campus recruitment. I wanted to work somewhere that I could make an impact on people’s lives, and it was so gratifying to help budding graduates find their passions in life. I spent 5 outstanding years at the centre of the tech boom in the US, searching for the world’s best talent, and combing through universities across the country for those hidden gems. I was responsible for our Engineering Diversity Program, which encompassed efforts across all areas of diversity, from women in tech, to Black & Hispanic communities, LGBT, veterans, and youth programs, as well as the development of our Technology Scholarship Program.
One day, another incredible opportunity arose, and I moved to London to build our Software Engineering Recruitment team, hiring graduate students across the UK and Europe, and hosting exciting initiatives with local organizations like StartupBus, HackTrain, CodeCon competitions, and more. I have spent the last few years focused on the expansion of our Engineering efforts across EMEA, the development of multiple technical initiatives, and the growth of our diversity engagement. It has been an incredibly challenging, exciting, and fulfilling time!
