Enjoy life! This is not a dress rehearsal!

I have been a specialized financial recruiter since 1992 and I still love what I do! I have a competitive nature, but I never lose sight of the fact that finding people a new position impacts their everyday lives – and so I genuinely try to make sure that wherever we place them will make them happy on a daily basis and offer them a rewarding, satisfying career.

I believe in being honest (sometimes I am too direct but I am well intended!) and I treat people the way that I would want to be treated. I have a substantial network within Ottawa and many of my clients and candidates have used my services on multiple occasions over many years. They know what to expect from me, and they trust me. Reputation is everything; my name is “on the wall” and I will always do my best to provide the best possible service to clients and candidates alike. I may not be able to place everyone who comes through our doors – but I try my hardest to ensure that everyone has a positive experience when dealing with me – sometimes I even make them laugh!

While I am not at work I love to ride – my horse is my passion and I love nothing more than spending time at the barn with him. “A ride a day keeps the therapist away!!” and of course I also enjoy spending time with my husband, two sons and new daughter-in-law!

If you are looking for a new position, or perhaps you are looking to hire someone into a financial or accounting related role, give me a call! I would welcome any questions you may have and I will do my best to assist you in any way I can!

Specialties: All aspects of financial, accounting and payroll recruitment; interview preparation, resume guidance, general tips for how to excel in an interview, negotiating the best possible (but realistic!) salary.

Your career should be enjoyed, not endured.

Before joining the team at Stevenson & White, I graduated from the University of Glamorgan in the south of Wales with a Bachelor of Business Administration. During this experience I realized how much I enjoy meeting new people and building new relationships. I have since established an excellent track record in finding the right fit between great candidates and great organizations by listening to both the candidate’s needs and the client’s expectations. Whether you’re searching for talent or looking to make your next career move, you can be sure to trust our team of industry leading recruiters.

When I’m away from the office, you will likely find me enjoying a game of golf, taking my dog for a run or just simply enjoying the outdoors.

All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them. – Walt Disney

I grew up in Montreal (je suis bilingue!) and have been living in the Ottawa area for the past 10 years. I have a long history in customer service and truly believe in creating “Raving Fans” out of everyone I deal with. I love meeting new people and building relationships. The idea of helping someone find their dream job is very exciting to me and I’ll do my best to find you the perfect fit to ensure you love what you’re doing, and where you’re doing it.

When I’m not at work, my husband and two children keep me busy. We love to travel and are not afraid to admit we’re Disney-addicts! I’m also on the Board of Directors at the Youville Centre and am passionate about supporting the young women there as they change the trajectory of their lives, as well as their children’s lives.

If it's meant to be, it will be!

After almost 15 years in various retail and sales roles with the same company, I made a change into the unknown world of recruitment. What was most important to me in taking this huge step was finding a new company that I would “fit” with. That’s why I came to Stevenson & White. I love that this company has the same values that I do – integrity, honesty and hard work! It’s very important to our team that we always find the right person for the right position. I want the people we place to love what they do just as much as I do.

When I’m not at work, I am spending time with my family or taking my son to one of his many activities. During my down time, you can find me either at the dance studio or trying to break out of one of the many amazing escape rooms in Ottawa.

I believe that because you spend the majority of your time at work, you should love what you do!

I have been with Stevenson & White since 2005, having joined the team after gaining experience first as an elementary school teacher and then in Human Resources and corporate sales training. Having made changes along the way on my own career path, I fully appreciate what is involved in making the decision to take on a new opportunity. I love being part of the Stevenson & White team and the challenge of finding the right fit between candidates and clients.

When I am not at work, I keep busy with my two children – volunteering at their school, chauffeuring them to various activities and cheering them on at hockey, ringette, soccer, softball and baseball.

Making one person smile can change the world. Maybe not the whole world, but their world!

I have been with Stevenson & White since 2015 and have 15 years of customer service and administration experience. I love meeting new people and helping them to feel comfortable when they come in to our office to work with our team.

When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our mini schnauzer. I am also an avid crafter and enjoy playing a number of different sports throughout the year.
