After growing up in New Jersey, I escaped to college in Pennsylvania, and kept moving after that. I served seven years in the Air Force as a pilot in Texas, Germany and Japan, and then returned to school to transition into business. Wanderlust led me to a project management assignment in Europe, and once there I volunteered to move to Russia to establish and manage a joint venture. After a decade overseas, I was fortunate to work for some great Connecticut companies in product management and marketing, until I discovered that I enjoyed working with people even more than products. Counseling clients on hiring decisions and candidates on career advancement is truly rewarding.
