What’s the #1 quality you feel is important to achieving success in the staffing industry?

What’s your favorite thing to do in Chicago?
I love trying out all of the best food and coffee shops in the area.
Do you have a unique skill or trick?
Yes, I can play the clarinet!
What is something random nobody would guess about you?
I love 80-90s metal and 90-00s emo music! I probably know exactly where to find a good emo party around the city. Also, my parents run a Christmas tree farm and landscaping business in Michigan that I used to work at during high school/college. It actually does quite a bit of business, and my mom has a gift shop with all handmade things!
