I am an experienced search and executive recruitment professional, having dedicated my entire career to working exclusively with professional services firms.

I am the Associate Director for Ambition covering our Legal Business Development, Marketing & Communications space, with a primary focus of building and leading our team to cover the North American market. To date we have worked across; New York, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Chicago, LA, San Fran and other US cities.
