EcoGrrl Consulting was founded by Aimee in 2012 to fill a vital need for small companies who lack the benefit of an in-house recruiter.
- As a recruiting consultant, she serves her clients with the same energy and commitment that she provided to her past employers – overseeing the entire recruiting process from start to finish, promoting her clients as employers of choice, and using her extensive network to strengthen candidate pools.
- As a career coach, she works with individuals one-on-one to develop effective resumes, strong interviewing skills, increase their network, and assist them in navigating through career transitions.
- As a writer, she contributes to a variety of local career blogs including Mac’s List and Silicon Florist, and writes a weekly career column, 9 to 5, as part of her own blog.
Aimee brings 15+ years of experience in Talent Acquisition and Human Resources, having worked in a diverse range of fields including software, apparel, publishing, nonprofit, manufacturing, government and environmental services. She has her BS in Human Resources Management, and has been Professional in Human Resources (PHR) certified since 2004.
Aimee has a reputation for delivering high-caliber results within a quickly evolving profession, partnering with hiring teams to create strategies for attracting, retaining and developing talent, and using her extensive and diverse personal, professional, and social networks to bring people and companies together.
