​I have a finance and accounting background; I worked in the industry before transitioning to Recruitment for roles in that space and, more recently, to the renewable energy industry.

I moved to the United States to attend college on the East Coast. I graduated from Suffolk University in Boston, MA, with a bachelor’s degree in Entrepreneurship.

After college, I moved and worked in different cities, Los Angeles, Miami, Argentina, Guatemala, and 9 years ago, I settled in Los Angeles, the city I call home.

I pursued my Master’s degree in Finance from Tulane University; and worked in that field for several years. I moved into recruitment a few years back when I was contacted by a public accountant to join his new venture in the USA, a recruitment company for finance roles. I was the first hire in North America; as a Recruitment Consultant, we developed and grew the business and was then promoted to Senior Consultant.

After three years focusing on finance and accounting roles, I have now moved into the renewables energy sector with Piper Maddox as Account Manager for key accounts.

Why Piper Maddox and the clean energy sector?

Piper Maddox offered me an opportunity to work in recruitment, a job that I have come to enjoy and excel in, and luckily, in an industry with a substantial positive impact on our environment.

Something else…

I really enjoy time with my family and my friends. I love travelling, being outdoors, enjoy simple things like a good read, a glass of wine, nature, yoga and dancing.
