What made you want to join RocketPower?

The great Marce Donnici contacted me as we've known each other for over 10 years and RP was in need of a Recruiter. I talked to him about this potential opportunity and I became very interested in the company and in the opportunities that were offered, especially as I was going to be working with people I'd already had the pleasure to work with (such as Marce, Fede and Giselle).

Briefly describe your role here at RocketPower…

I'm currently working as a Recruiter providing support to Color, a biotech company. I started working on the clinical side, had over 16 hires and then moved to the Operations side, providing support to a huge Vaccination project the client had. I had to lead the recruitment and hiring efforts for this Vaccination Program. It was a very interesting and rewarding experience.

What core value do you resonate with most? (SOFE - Seek to Understand, Ownership Mentality, First Things First, Everybody Wins)

Everybody wins. I'm a very people person and I think that, if we all work together as a team, we'll benefit from that, personally and professionally. The client will definitely be benefited by that as well and the team will be happy.

What is your favorite thing about working at RocketPower?

Definitely the people. During the team meetings it's great to see that we can all work hard together and that we can also have fun at the same time. The culture at RP is the best and I've felt welcomed from the very beginning. Also, the dynamic environment makes it very fun and interesting.

What is your favorite thing to do outside of work/your interests or hobbies/anything you’d like to highlight about yourself?

I love spending time with Max, my 11 year old son, my boyfriend and my dog. We like spending time outdoors and also taking long walks with Laika, our dog. I also like playing the guitar, watching movies, reading and listening to music. I also like playing football. I'm not good at it but it's something I really enjoy.

What is a fun fact about yourself that most people don’t know?

I play the guitar and I used to have a punk rock band in my early twenties and then a heavy metal band. XD Music is a huge part of my life.
