How long have you been with the company?
I have been with CyberSearch since 2015

Life before CyberSearch (school/other work)?
I am an alumni of Northern Michigan University with a BS in English class of 2009. I have dipped my toes into several professions including Theatre Management, Healthcare Administration, Bookselling, and Marketing before moving to Illinois and learning the Recruiting and HR ropes!

What is your passion outside of the office?
I’m a passionate progressive citizen heavily involved in political organization and volunteering for progressive groups. l am a voracious reader who stays up on Current Events and has an affinity for Non-fiction, Biography, and Historical Fiction.

What is your favorite part of the job/working at CyberSearch?
My co-workers and getting to learn something new every day!

What is your favorite quote?
“The only person you need to be better than is the person you were yesterday.” – Jenny Lawson Furiously Happy

What inspires you?
I’m inspired by my Mother, Linda’s grit, bravery, resilience, and determination which can be summed up in the Finnish word, SISU! She is smart, works hard, rarely complains, and will always be there for you when you need her. Linda likes to see the job get done and that it is done well. She is the consummate “mother-figure” and known to several non-familial friends as “Mom.” She’s amazing and a daily inspiration to me.

What is your favorite place you have traveled?
Quimixto beach in Nueva Vallarta. It’s a small village near to the Mexican resort towns that reminded me of the secluded Macondo village from Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s One Hundred Years of Solitude, one of my (many) favorite novels!
