About Lara:

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

• I started my business in April 2020 - literally at the beginning of the pandemic - which tells you something about my willingness to take on a challenge and my determination.

• For over nine years, I ran restaurant operations and worked for boutique hospitality groups in the Bay Area. I was particularly good at streamlining systems, scaling businesses for growth, and building teams. I worked my way up from a Floor Manager to General Manager and then eventually to a multi-unit leader.

• In 2014, I 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 me a better person but changed my life!

• Since I was young, I have always been passionate about helping others. This has been the constant theme throughout everything I have done. As a recruiter, partnering with people to achieve positive change and asking the tough questions is what I thrive on.

• I am originally from Southern California. However, I earned my BA at UC Berkeley and have since spent over 20 years in the Bay Area & Sonoma County areas. I love hiking in nature, international travel, and am crazy about animals.
