With a diverse career background across different industries and roles, Katie is no stranger to career challenges. Given her deep understanding and personal experience in finding a role that fulfils you and a career where you can make a difference, Katie loves to inspire people to reach their potential in their careers, which led her to the recruitment industry. She understands the ups and downs that individual’s career paths take, and as such she is built to be an ideal recruiter, to work with the business and the job seeker to make sure that there is a strategic process and a strong bond formed.

Katie is a strong believer that each person is in charge of their own destiny, meaning that all must have a vision, a plan to get there, and a focus on everything in one’s career. She believes in risk-taking, and lives by the quote, “The miracle isn’t that I finished. The miracle is that I had the courage to start.”
