She brings a wealth of experience supporting the placement of candidates from C-Level Executives and Board Directors to all other Executive and Management level talent in a variety of functional areas that includes HR, Legal, IT, Finance, Operations and Sales and Marketing.

Nicola’s experience transcends a wide range of industries having worked within the retail, energy, technology, telecommunications, professional services, not-for-profit, financial services, and manufacturing sectors.  She has successfully identified and attracted talent at the local, national, and international levels with the ability to support clients with their most challenging and unique mandates, including supporting the delivery of diversity recruitment initiatives.

Nicola truly enjoys making a difference and is passionate about pairing the right talent and cultural fit, for both candidates and clients, and she strives to do so each and every time.

She has a degree in Psychology from the University of Waterloo. Outside of the workplace, Nicola is a former competitive athlete who has volunteered and supported the community by working with emotionally and behaviourally challenged adolescents and tutoring in an adult literacy program through the Toronto Public Library.
