What is the most rewarding part about your job?

Being an asset in helping others find their dream jobs.

What’s the secret to a great interview?

Be positive! Emphasize on what you have done and your experience, not what you haven’t.

What’s the most important piece of professional/career advice you’ve ever received?

“Never give up, anything is possible.” I stand by this advice and ensure that I give everything I can to my work so I can be as successful as possible. This way I can look back in the future and know I tried my hardest.

What is something you can do better than anyone else you know? 

Find the bright side to any situation.

We know Vaco is your dream job, but if you could do another job for just one day, what would it be?

Own my own bakery and food truck!

What’s one thing you’ve always wanted to learn?

I would love to learn a different language.

What’s one cause or organization you are passionate about?

The Alzheimer’s organization is very important to me. My grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and since then my family and I attend the Alzheimer’s foundation walks in CT every year even after she passed.
