Nickname:  Jess

Position @ Juno:  Talent Manager, Administrative Support Division

If you weren’t a Recruiter, what would you be? I do love sheep so a Shepherd (just kidding), but I actually love being a Recruiter.

Favorite thing about Philadelphia? That the city is walkable, especially walking through the Rittenhouse Square area. Also, so many great places to eat!

Do you have any secret skills? I am seriously a sheep whisperer, baking, an expert organizer and coming up with creative and personalized gift ideas.

If you were a TV or movie character, who would you be? Carrie Bradshaw, but a little less trendy wearing all LOFT.

You get to pick one person, dead or alive, to have lunch with – who would it be? Justin Bieber, I have many things I would like to ask him.

You are on death row – what is your last meal? My mom’s home cooked scalloped potatoes, fried eggplant and chicken parm. I would top it off with chocolate frozen yogurt specifically from Yogurtland.

Favorite song of all time? Hmm I honestly do not have one. I’m not a big music person, but I love any song by Justin Bieber or a good 90’s throwback.

Favorite movie of all time? The Notebook, Pearl Harbor and Shawshank Redemption. If I had to choose, The Notebook would be number one.

If you could live anywhere else, where would it be? I currently live in South Jersey, so the dream location is Rittenhouse Square overlooking the park.

Where is the best cheesesteak in Philadelphia? The only kind of cheesesteak in Philly that I have had is Tony Luke’s at an Eagles game.

Favorite family tradition? Each Christmas Eve my mom gives me and my sister pajama sets (sometimes matching) and then my dad reads us ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas.

What is the best piece of advice you ever received? Everything happens for a reason.

Biggest pet peeve? Well to name a few… not being honest, canceling plans, being obnoxious or talking too loud on the train

Strangest recruiting moment? During an interview the candidate got up from sitting across from me to sit directly next to me at the table.
