"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."
I joined Stevenson & White in 2013, initiating the second generation of our family-owned and operated recruitment firm. Prior to Stevenson & White, I worked in various corporate sales and customer service roles. This experience allowed me to make a relatively smooth transition into the world of recruitment. I also hold a Bachelor of Arts in Sports Management from the University of Glamorgan (UK) and a Business Administration Diploma in Professional Golf Management from Georgian College.
I was thrilled to join the energetic and collaborative team at Stevenson & White and I am committed to upholding our core company values – honesty, integrity and professionalism. I have discovered that matching skilled finance professionals with the right organizations is a very rewarding process to be a part of. It is critical in today’s evolving job market that organizations attract and retain top talent to remain competitive. Human capital will continue to be an organization’s greatest asset, and for that very reason I pride myself on intently listening to both my client’s needs and the candidates’ expectations to ensure I find the best fit!
When it comes to the candidate experience, our team understands that searching for new opportunities can be challenging, so we are 100% committed to making that transition a smooth and pleasant experience. No one should feel like a number when they walk through our door!
Whether you are a candidate looking for a new role or a hiring manager or HR professional looking to fill a vacancy in your organization, I encourage you to call or email me or any member of our team. We would be happy to help and are committed to making the process easier for you.
In my spare time I am either taking my dog Stella out for a hike with my wife, sliding out for a round of golf or just simply relaxing at the cottage, ideally around the BBQ or on the water with my family and friends.

I recently joined Stevenson & White after more than 8 years in a sales and service role in the insurance industry. I was ready for a change and a new challenge! The recruitment field appeals to me on several levels and allows me to draw on my strengths in people skills and relationship building. Having recently made a change in my own career, I can truly appreciate what’s involved and I am excited at the prospect of helping others find their perfect fit!
I grew up south of Ottawa in Osgoode and currently live in Greely with my husband and two sons. When I’m not at work you can find me at my younger son’s hockey games or my older son’s water polo. I also enjoy walking our yellow lab, Hank and spending time at our cottage.
"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 with the Caring and Sharing Exchange and am passionate about supporting families in need in Ottawa and the surrounding area.
“Anyone can see the mountain view. Very few will see the view from atop the mountain.”
Before joining the team at Stevenson and White, I was fortunate to have spent 3 years in the Yukon where I took every opportunity to explore this beautiful part of our country while hiking the multitude of trails of The Yukon, BC and Alaska, and following the trail of the gold-rushers over the Chilkoot Pass. I believe that when we look at situations in our life as opportunities to explore and test our limits, we grow in ways we never imagined.
After graduating from the University of Guelph, I became passionate about Human Resources and decided to take HR courses out of personal interest. I bring to my role many years of recruitment experience in both a busy police communications centre, as well as the largest telecommunications company in northern Canada. I believe that human capital is an organization’s most important asset, and I’m proud to work for a company whose motto is “It’s all about the fit”.
“Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work” - Aristotle
I am very proud to be a member of the Stevenson & White team and to have the opportunity to carry on my family business while maintaining the high standards of professionalism, integrity and honesty we are known for here in Ottawa.
Prior to joining Stevenson & White, I spent 8 years working as a realtor and was able to develop excellent interpersonal and communication skills on top of strong negotiating tactics. Working closely with people has always been a passion of mine which made the decision to transition into the recruiting world an easy one. I strongly believe that one of the most critical aspects to a recruiter’s success is the ability to listen and learn. Understanding exactly what it is our clients and candidates are looking for and taking the time to pair those qualities is what sets the good matches apart from the great.
I also recognize that exploring and staffing new positions can be both difficult and time consuming. Here at Stevenson & White, we are committed to making the process as seamless as possible for both clients and candidates. I will take the time to walk you through each step. I truly believe that it is all about the fit and I find it very rewarding to make a difference in someone’s day to day life by placing them in a position to be successful.
Whenever I’m not in the office I love to spend time with my incredible wife, friends and family as well as my dog Zucchini and cat Smudge! I’m also an avid golfer in the summer months and a fan of travelling to warmer climates over the winter.
"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 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 know what is involved in making the decision to take on a new opportunity and the challenge of finding the right fit. I love being part of Stevenson & White and supporting our team in my role as Manager of Corporate Services.
I am a strong believer in the importance of balancing all life’s priorities (though it’s something I still struggle with!). When I’m 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.

Born and raised in Ottawa, and a recent graduate of both Algonquin College and Carleton University, I am very proud to be working for an Ottawa based firm!
My previous roles in real estate and the not for profit sector helped me to gain valuable experience in customer service with the most rewarding part for me – helping others achieve their dreams! I am excited to continue this goal as a part of the Stevenson & White team and to be a part of the journey to finding the right fit!
In my free time, I love spending time with friends and family at the cottage, along with my dog Crosby. I am also a huge sports fan and love to organize and plan future travels.
