Before joining Recruiting in Motion, Kristi enjoyed a successful 18-year career with a global, specialized staffing firm. Early on, she held individual contributor and leadership roles on accounting and finance as well as administrative temporary placement teams. In the summer of 2000, Kristi made the leap to focus on full-time, permanent placement of accounting and finance professionals and found her niche!
Kristi loves the dual nature of her role. She takes pride in her ability to make the right technical and culture match when identifying talent for her clients, while simultaneously assisting finance professionals to achieve their career goals. She attributes her own success to her ability to listen to and understand clients’ and candidates’ needs and more fundamentally to being nice, honest and working hard.
When she’s not in the office you can find Kristi plotting her next travel destination, playing softball or ball hockey, enjoying downtime with her partner and their two felines or if you have night vision technology, enjoying a film.
Fun / Interesting Facts
- Kristi and her partner are avid film-goers. While Kristi describes herself as more of an enthusiast, he is practically a walking IMDB! Every September, you’ll find them enjoying somewhere between 3 and 5 films a day at TIFF. Her peak was 46 films in 9 days!
- She loves ALL animals, particularly cats and over the course of her life has had nine feline companions. She’ll swear she’s not a ‘crazy cat lady’ but her Instagram account suggests otherwise.
- Kristi and her partner love to travel! They’ve seen Thailand, Peru, Egypt, Hawaii, Brazil, Argentina, Mexico and Spain as well as some less exotic destinations. If you also love travel…and your safety, it’s wise not to visit any locale they’ve been to within 6 to 8 months. Long story…Kristi can explain.
- Go Jays!!! This girl is definitely not on any kind of bandwagon. Since the first summer in ’77 (and those back-breaking bleachers of Exhibition Stadium) and regardless of games over or under .500, you’ll find Kristi at SkyDome, err Rogers Centre or possibly in New York, Chicago or another city cheering on her favourite team.
