No stranger to the Pacific Northwest, Monica grew up in Oregon and Washington, and studied English Literature at Western Washington University. Monica worked in commercial insurance, but she was looking to grow her career in a more “people-centric environment” where she could use her strengths to make a difference in other’s lives. She took the plunge into recruiting!
With five years under her belt at Motus, Monica has the unique experience among the recruiters of having grown up within the company– she helped to build these positions from the ground up. She was the very first full-time Talent Acquisition Specialist at Motus, and has since made her way through the ranks to become one of Motus’ most valued Professional Services recruiters. Monica shares, “I really love making that call to offer someone a great job! I get to change someone’s life in a positive and meaningful way.”
On a typical weekend in town, Monica enjoys some of the classic Portland activities like biking and wine tasting. She also spends her time reading, painting, house hunting, and all things local. What you may not know, however, is that Monica’s family is Italian and she loves it! In college she was able to go on a backpacking trip through Italy with her aunt and grandmother and met her long lost family in Florence!
