Time flies when you’re having fun! I am very lucky to hugely enjoy working in The Firm, which I established back in the late 1990’s. I work with a great crew here in the office to help our superb hospitality clients and talented candidates achieve their professional goals.

I held operations management positions in leading hotels, restaurants and catering companies in Ireland, Australia and the UK before moving into recruitment. That industry experience enables me to understand the needs of our clients when recruiting senior managers and chefs into key positions that bring real added value to their business.

I am passionate about design, cooking and wine, and I have taken up running 10km races with Cosmo, my Kerry Blue dog, to balance this food & wine over consumption!

What a wonderful job I have! Almost every day I get to meet great people as we make plans together for their next career move. Their ambition is also mine, and it is a privilege to share the thrill of a job offer.

My own hospitality career began in a hotel working in front office, and that gave me a lifelong passion for the business. As a strong believer in CPD, I have worked continuously on expanding my skillset, and one of my achievements has been to complete a Leadership Course with IBEC at the IMI.

In my down time, I enjoy reading glossy magazines, particularly the recipes, wallowing in cookery programmes and books and choosing dishes for “Himself” to try out at home. A seriously fun day is one spent with my three nephews.

In an ideal world, I would really like to wake up faster in the morning and know how to use an endless list of computer devices!

As a chocoholic who is addicted to bootcamp, I love finding opposites that match in this business. I also like to keep everything and everyone in order, which is not always possible!

I admire anyone who makes a positive difference in other people’s lives and get great satisfaction out of seeing people do well in a new position or take that step upwards in their career. Having worked in tourism and events myself, I love connecting and working with the great personalities who make our industry tick.

At weekends, I enjoy lots of outdoor activities with my young sons and contrary to the number of cookbooks I have, the result always stays the same – you will only find me in the kitchen at parties!

I’ve always loved hotels, and working in the Renaissance Chancery Court and Marriott Park Lane in London was a dream come true. When I left to raise a family, I knew I would one day be back in the hospitality world, come what may…

That’s why I am so delighted to be part of The Firm, where we can help others with the same passion find the perfect fit. As someone who was looking for a job after a 10-yr career break, I know just how stressful the job search process can be. It’s great to be in a place where the goal is not only to find jobs for people, but to make the whole experience as enjoyable as possible.

In my spare time, I’m busily training the second generation of hoteliers, spending lots of time in deep discussion with my children of why this hotel’s breakfast / pool / bedroom was better than that one…!

I studied hospitality in DIT, completing my BA in Athlone and I achieved my first managerial position at the age of 21.

I worked with a high-end cruise company for four years and also spent a year in Australia, my most recent role before joining The Firm was as an Operations Manager in a busy four-star hotel and I understand first- hand how vital it is to hire candidates who have the right skillset for your business and who will complement your existing team.

I returned to education part-time recently undertaking a Diploma in Learning and Development.

In my spare time, I like to keep fit with gym classes or an outdoor walk, gently encouraging my friends to join me. I like to travel and discover new exciting destinations. I am at my happiest spending time with my family especially my young nephew and niece or simply cooking for friends.

I am delighted to be meeting people in hospitality on a daily basis, they are ready to take the next step in their careers and I am here to listen and guide.

My restaurant experience started at L’Ecrivain and I also worked at The Fat Duck under Heston Blumenthal before working with The Merrion Hotel and opening Saison Restaurant on Kildare Street, Dublin.

I have a B.S.c in Culinary Entrepreneurship from DIT and a distinction in Wine Studies, this education has helped me to develop my management career and before joining The Firm I was a General Manager with KSG.

I have two young children and I like to teach them the important things in life such as how to hold a knife and fork, carry a tray and how wine and cheese pairings work!
