She was quickly promoted into the role of Recruiting Manager, which she held for many years. There, she led the process of identifying and recruiting top talent for all levels and all disciplines within the agency, including account service, account planning, media, creative, production, project management, public relations, and digital. The agency grew from 150 to 300 employees during her tenure.
