Network with other women in the hospitality industry, learn about new developments, and explore career options with our Corporate Partners who have embraced the “Essential Elements of a Quality Job in Hospitality” principles.
I started in Hospitality waiting tables at the age of 15; at the end of High School and through college I worked for the McDonald’s corporation working my way up from an hourly employee to swing manager.
In 1994, I graduated from the University of Houston with a BS in Hospitality Management and soon after joined Boston Market as an HR Administrative Assistant. I was promoted to Regional Recruiter in 1996 and spent the last 15 years recruiting for both operations and corporate positions in the Restaurant and IT Industries
I have spent my career focused on finding and hiring outstanding candidates and helping them to develop and discover their potential while creating an environment to “WOW” the guest and provide a service and atmosphere that creates repeat business. I am very passionate about recruiting and encompass the values and principles of integrity, honesty and treating everyone with respect and dignity in every search.

Vending machines generally offer up sodas, candy bars and chips. Not so for the one created by TED Fellow Gabe Barcia-Colombo. This artist has dreamed up a DNA Vending Machine, which dispenses extracted human DNA, packaged in a vial along with a collectible photo of the person who gave it. It’s charming and quirky, but points out larger ethical issues that will arise as access to biotechnology increases.
