The Sensa Team Today

Today, recruiting has afforded me the chance to work with many missions and with staff at all levels. Building relationships has been a lifelong strength of mine, and being able to use this skill professionally contributes to a fulfilling career. My work at Sensa Recruiting allows me to earn a living talking to people and helping them craft their professional narrative, and that’s a beautiful thing. 

While meaningful work is important to me, it always played a secondary role to my family. I feel so lucky to have married my best friend and I view each of my children as a gift. Spending time with them has always been my priority. We are so fortunate to be a tight unit and now that they are grown, I can honestly say I enjoyed every phase and really like them as people! Owning a small business allows me to feel fulfilled professionally and personally so I enjoy where I am now and plan on staying here a while.

Fundraising was a huge part of the Executive Director role, but I had never been formally trained in fundraising, so I took a role as a senior fundraising consultant.  This consultant job taught me something important about myself- I am much more comfortable being in the trenches and invested in whatever I am doing than directing the work of others. The role of fundraising was shifting in the field and no longer held my attention, and I was starting to see that hiring the right people really impacted organizations and their ability to deliver a mission. I had experienced firsthand the pitfalls of poor hiring decisions and how that set organizations back. So, what next? My love of people’s personal stories and professional paths led me to recruiting, and with nearly 2 decades working inside nonprofits, that seemed the best place to direct my efforts. Helping nonprofits remain competitive by identifying talent was a fulfilling concept.




I have always been fascinated by peoples’ stories explaining how they arrived at their careers, and over the years, I’ve discovered a common trend among people who are truly happy in their jobs. Their talent in their chosen role is exhibited early on in life, almost as though it is innate. This is true of my professional path as well.

When the time came to declare a major in college, I had no clue what I wanted to do so I chose something I knew: teaching. I loved public speaking, children, and the time I spent volunteering in schools. The middle child in me chose middle schoolers. They are at that transitional point in life where they aren’t children but not quite a teen either, it made their experiences comical to me.   

While I did enjoy the students, I quickly learned teaching wasn’t for me. Fortunately, I was recruited out of the classroom to a national nonprofit where I trained corporate volunteers to teach children of all ages. That job took me to places all around the country and introduced me to some of my most favorite professional (and personally inspirational) role models. I finished my career in this organization as an Executive Director.
