What I do: I hold an inaugural position at Audible managing recruiting events. In my role, I am building a recruiting event strategy, structuring best practices, and creating and executing a robust calendar of events to attract talent to our organization. I am creating a forum for innovative recruiting events where our engineers and recruiters are able to meet with new talent, including a focus on diversity.

How I got here: My career is an almost 15-year journey planning events and conferences, primarily for global investment banks. In that time I have been fortunate to plan events on all continents and work with many industry and world leaders. In an effort to grow and expand, I joined Audible last year. Audible has allowed me to leverage my strengths and knowledge and apply them to developing recruiting events in a technology-focused environment.

My greatest career accomplishment: It was my greatest privilege to be the project lead for an event hosted by the White House with Michelle Obama as the keynote speaker.
