CORE Profile

My niche is in Islands & Resorts recruitment at CORE. As a well-travelled individual, I’ve always been in the “people” industry, exploring several types of roles including FOH service, Theme Parks, Hotels, Fitness Coaching, and eventually making a splash as a senior leader in a high-end outdoor retail group. When I met the team at CORE, I knew I had found my people. Funny, witty, and always up for a good time.


What do you enjoy most?

Unicorn roles are my absolute favourite. I love it when we get to flex our skills at finding the perfect candidate for a very specific brief. The rush when you fit two perfectly shaped puzzle pieces together…. WHEW! Getting all buzzy just thinking about it. The team culture at CORE is legendary, as well. There’s never a day where I don’t want to come into work!

What did you want to be when you were younger?

A Dolphin Trainer! I would show anyone who dared to ask about my future career this picture of a poorly drawn grey blob jumping through a hoop to prove I had the “stuff”.

What do you do when you're not at work?

We’re big mountain people. In summer, you can find us climbing on the local crags, and in winter, ski touring up snow covered hills to get a few turns in. There’s always a yum local beer waiting for us when we’re done.
