While her dream job may be stand-up comedian, Rose is our Chief Operating Officer, aka our resident Recruiter Advocate and Business Strategist. She has 18 years of management experience and seven years in the recruiting industry. She has a background working in the technology, professional services, and creative sectors, and is committed to the success of our candidates and helping our clients achieve their goals. Rose attributes most of her success in recruiting to her determination to seize every career opportunity that fell her way in the very beginning of her career. “I took advantage of every opportunity offered in hopes something would click. It was a hard road at times, but one I fully embraced with every door that closed and every door that was opened.” She studied at Marylhurst University, double majoring in business marketing and fine art.
Outside of work, Rose loves going wine tasting, being on the water with her family, cooking for friends, and traveling to visit friends and family in California and New York a couple times a year. She has volunteered with Rose Haven Women’s Shelter and Open Meadow School in the past and feels strongly about helping people who may have dropped out of school and are trying to find their way, whether teen or adult. To keep things light and bright, Rose enjoys listening to Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard and any female stand-up comic’s podcasts.
What does she think sets Motus apart? “Our intense need to do what is right for the candidate, even if we lose some profit every once in a while. The people who work here are 100 percent authentic and respect each other wholeheartedly. We’re all so committed to contributing to the growth of the company, everyone is like their own little business.” She adds, “I love being a manager people trust to help them succeed and overcome obstacles. I am energized by the need to create solutions to complex and ever-changing needs. Balancing multiple moving parts has always been a thrill for me.”
