Areas Of Specialty

I love making things happen and being an agent of positive change for my clients & candidates.

Lara started her business in April 2020, literally at the beginning of the pandemic, which tells you something about her willingness to take on a challenge and her determination.  For over nine years, she ran restaurant operations and worked for boutique hospitality groups in the Bay Area. Lara was particularly good at streamlining systems, scaling businesses for growth, and building teams. She worked my way up from a Floor Manager to General Manager and then eventually to a multi-unit leader.

In 2014, Lara made a career pivot to non-profit and worked on the front lines with women at a shelter program in Los Angeles. This experience not only made her a better person but changed her life!  Since she was young, Lara has been passionate about helping others. As a recruiter, partnering with people to achieve positive change and asking tough questions is what she thrives on.

Lara is originally from Southern California. She earned her BA at UC Berkeley and has since spent over 20 years in the Bay Area and Sonoma County areas. Lara loves hiking in nature, international travel, and is crazy about animals.
