Since joining Motus in 2013, Monica has personified recruiting excellence, tapping into her natural talent as a change maker and facilitator for both candidates and clients. She joined the Motus team as the company’s first recruiting coordinator, setting the example for successful execution in the role within a fast-paced, deadline driven environment. Within a year, she moved into a recruiter role, and never looked back.
Currently, Monica serves as a Senior Recruiter and Team Lead for the professional services division, which supports diverse functional roles for a wide range of sectors, including healthcare, retail, financial services, manufacturing, and more. Her background in risk management for a commercial brokerage firm gave Monica direct experience in providing a high-level customer service experience to clients.
Recently, Monica assumed additional responsibilities as the trainer for the talent acquisition/recruiting support team, “which taps into my teacher and counselor side.” She is thrilled to help shape and grow the team, in part by passing along her belief that if you work hard and are kind, amazing things will happen. Of course, she incorporates in-depth career and interview coaching into her work with candidates as well.
Monica shares, “I do think we have something special here,” and that applies to her as well. She exudes expertise and professionalism while remaining humble and approachable. A graduate of Western Washington University, she enjoys reading, writing and all things communication. A perfect weekend might consist of riding her bike to her favorite local coffee shop and then heading up to Mt. Tabor Park to enjoy a forest sanctuary in the hustle and bustle of the city.
