“During the time I have been with Hogan Lovells, my career has taken a path I could not have predicted and I am constantly offered new challenges that are geared toward my strengths and interests.”

Getting to know Hogan Lovells
As an active and longtime member of the Washington, D.C. legal recruitment community, I am always communicating with my network of contacts within firms, law schools, and government agencies and am very well informed about the legal market. I had only heard good things about Hogan Lovells, so when I learned of an open recruiting position, I decided to apply. I was looking for a firm where I would be working with people who are intelligent, well respected, friendly, passionate about what they do, and have a commitment to their community. I also sought a place where there were opportunities to learn and grow. The most important factor, though, was I needed to feel certain that I would be able to represent the firm to which I would recruit law students and new associates honestly and with pride. Hogan Lovells was a perfect match.
My first year here was more demanding than I could have imagined and also more rewarding. During the time I have been with Hogan Lovells, my career has taken a path I could not have predicted and I am constantly offered new challenges that are geared toward my strengths and interests.
Not a day goes by without someone saying “thank you” or providing positive feedback. That may seem small, but it is not the culture everywhere. You cannot put a price on being truly appreciated for your hard work and dedication.
It is difficult to put into words the level of collegiality that cuts across the entire Hogan Lovells community. I have the pleasure of interacting with lawyers and staff members at every level, in a variety of groups and departments, and in most of our U.S. offices. The level of care and support shared by people here is extraordinary.
As Associate Recruitment Manager for Hogan Lovells, I work to ensure the firm draws top talent. I have found that the level of respect and congeniality among colleagues fosters a uniquely positive culture at the firm. I currently serve as Chair of NALP’s Recruiting Section (2015-16). I previously served as Mid-Atlantic Representative on NALP’s Nominating Committee (2014-15) and Regional Resource Council (2012-14), as a member of the NDLE Advisory Group (2013-14), and as a member of the Technology Advisory Group (2011-13). I am also an active member of WALRAA, having served on the Board of Directors (2007-08), as Diversity Committee Chair (2006) and as a member of WALRAA’s Strategic Planning Committee (2015).
