Hi, I’m Jackie! I am a Technical Recruiter here at IT Motives and what I love most about my job is connecting with people and fostering long term professional relationships. Each person is unique, and it gives me great joy to learn about you so that I can match you with your next wonderful opportunity. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, doing amateur phone photography, eating, taking the occasional nap, and racing our dachshund (Gunther) at the Oktoberfest’s. He just so happens to be a former PNW Wiener Dog Race Champion. Let’s connect!
