We’d love to know everything about you so we can do anything for you. So, if there’s an open desk at your place, we’d love to take it for a day.
That’s not as easy as it looks. We have to ask the tough questions. Why someone comes into work. What they look for in a colleague. What it takes to be successful somewhere. We find places to tell your story — from job boards to billboards, live videos to postcards. Our cost-effective, highly-integrated strategies will compel your dream candidates while repelling poor fits.

The Arland Group began out of opportunity. We wanted to do what the big guys weren’t. To combine authentic employer brands with integrated recruitment strategy. To connect companies with people and people with careers. To give clients the service and solutions they need, not what’s trending at the time. And, to have fun doing it. Things have changed in those 12 years, but we’re stronger than ever. And, we’re creatures of habit — there are some things we won’t budge on: listening to our clients, learning from one another and leading the way for all.

Zodiac Sign: Aries
Dog or Cat Person: Oh man, this is difficult. I grew up with cats my whole life, and I love my calico Moxie, but I received a Shi-a-poo, Arnie, and a Malte-poo, Rocco, for my birthdays 9 and 8 years ago, respectively, and they have been life changing!
Hobby: I love spinning and lifting weights, traveling to new places and cooking for and entertaining family and friends.
Favorite Beverage: I love Tito’s and tonic or a nice bold cabernet.
Favorite Movie: ET the Extraterrestrial has always been my favorite movie!
Best Career Advice You Ever Received?: Don’t ever show up to a meeting complaining about something unless you can offer up a solution to the problem.
Favorite travel spots: I am on the road so much for work that my favorite place to travel to is home, but when I travel for fun I love Mexico, the Caribbean or anywhere warm with a beach!
Who's your hero: My mom, who passed away, was my hero my whole life. She moved to the U.S. from Japan in 1957 when there were still strong feelings of hatred toward the Japanese. At only 20 years of age, with only about 10 English words in her vocabulary and one dime in her pocket, she made the move from Tobato City, Japan, to Turner Air Force Base in Albany, Georgia, with my father, who was a Master Sergeant in the Air Force. She was immediately a victim of racial discrimination because of her dark skin but held her head high and laughed off the terrible names that people yelled at her whenever she was in public. And while she lacked formal education and money, she had more common sense, determination and drive than any person I have ever met. She taught all of her kids that we could do whatever we wanted to do with our lives and never made me think that I was limited to my choices based on my gender. I am who I am today because of the example my mom showed us daily.
Fun Fact: I'm half Japanese and grew up wearing zoris year-round. To this day I would rather wear flip-flops than any other shoe, and there must be significant snow on the ground for me to wear socks.

Fun Fact: "Perfect" has 7 letters and so does “meeeeee.” Kidding! I am the type of person who is working extra hard to see the funny in everything. Life is too short to get mad about things that don’t really matter. One of my ongoing goals is to be more easy-going and to stop sweating the small stuff.
