Brief paragraph on why you would be the ideal candidate for this role:

My first Midwest ACE event was the Trends in Recruiting Conference in 2010. The conference was literally my second day in Talent Acquisition, and I was overwhelmed with all the new faces to say the least. Afterwards, as I began to see those same faces on campus, I instantly realized how much value this organization would add to my career. That realization made me extremely passionate about Midwest ACE and made me want to give back, so I feel very honored to be nominated for the role of President-elect.
I have developed strong leadership skills through both my “day job” and Midwest ACE. As President-elect, I would be able to stay focused on the big picture—I like to take a step back before I dive into a project. A background in sales makes me very results-oriented. My communication skills allow me to work very well in teams, build consensus within a group, and be an effective public speaker. I have also used my communication skills to build a large professional network within Midwest ACE. I will bring a strong balance of creativity and practicality. Lastly, I am very motivated and competitive, and I strive for excellence in anything I do.
