I am uniquely qualified to assist in matching the right people with the right career and company. I began my journey in the hospitality field very young while washing dishes in my families catering and grocery businesses. I developed an appreciation for fresh foods and a great work ethic. This has stayed with me through the years and has always been the cornerstone of my philosophy in the business. Over the years I have developed a keen sense of what it takes to be successful in not only restaurants but all aspects of the hospitality field. I am a graduate of the New England Culinary Institute in Vermont which was an amazing journey as well as a valuable learning experience. Although this was my formal education, I acquired the majority of my culinary skills from working closely with my family and learning the tricks to making things fresh and great.

     I have many years of both branded, high-volume experience and lower volume but high- quality restaurant experience. Couple that with years of nightclub and grocery store experience, I can be very selective with choosing the right candidate for what an employer is looking for. I have worked with such companies as Planet Hollywood, Dave & Buster's, Applebee's and Boston Pizza, just to name a few.  I have owned my own restaurant, nightclub and bakery over the years doing scratch cooking and booking live entertainment for nightclubs. My years of experience will show as I help connect people with the right careers.

Since the onset of our partnership with Robert Krzak and his team at Gecko Hospitality we have been nothing short of elated. Their relationship-based, business culture is unmatched in the industry. Their want to understand your candidate profile, general business practices and 'get the job done' attitude is stellar.

We have had a number of great placements with Gecko Hospitality in very difficult operating markets. When given the daunting task to hire an executive- level Home Office team member, I contacted Robert and his team with the job specifications. In a matter of one week, I had a number of viable candidates to interview all possessing the requirements we were searching for. Though we were working with other sources, within four weeks it was one of the candidates that Gecko had brought to us that we hired. As I expected, their quick response, thorough screening and get it done attitude during the process was excellent.

In the future when asked to hire those typically difficult high-level executive positions Gecko will be my first and only call.

Thank you to Robert and his team for a job well done!
