What is that crazy GONG?

Every time someone accepts a new position through ESS, the recruiter bangs the gong.  We are excited for the candidate, their family, and the new company they are joining.  I think it’s exciting every time we hit the gong because I know we helped someone new.

Tell me something interesting about your family that people don’t often know.

I grew up with two brothers and now have four daughters of my own.  All signs of manliness have disappeared from my house.  In fact, I can now recognize shoes and purses by name – HELP!

If you could do one thing outside the office (and money was no object) what would you do and where would you go?

I would spend 24 months traveling the world.  I would like to spend a month in each of 24 different countries learning the culture and understanding the people.  I would get a part-time job in each country to appreciate the work style and economy.

What was the best advice you ever received?

Take Risks. Your fear is your only limitation.
