About Silicon Valley Sally
Hi, Welcome to Silicon Valley Sally!
So happy you are here. If you are like me, you have had some less than awesome employment experiences and/or you may be in one now. In the past, I have struggled in unfulfilling roles and with poor leadership which left me feeling frustrated, under-appreciated and burnt out. Sound familiar? That was my inspiration to launch Silicon Valley Sally.
How did I get here?
As noted above, I got BURNT OUT. I have been working for 25 years, the last 9 of which have been dedicated to hyper-growth start-ups in a recruiting capacity. While I loved all of the thrill and excitement of being on the ground floor and helping build great companies like Google, LinkedIn, DocuSign and MongoDB, I also learned that the toll from the hyper-growth lifestyle (working long days with long commutes, being overloaded with open roles, challenging hiring managers, etc) is your health and happiness.
As I was transitioning into launching this business, I had sought out a Reiki practitioner to help me find a better balance in my life. Reiki had such a positive impact on my health and outlook, I decided to get trained and become a certified Reiki healer myself. I use reiki daily as a tool to help me keep balance and focus.
Throughout the last few years of my recruiting tenure, I noticed a transition to candidate experience and success. I was leaning less towards filling roles and more towards coaching candidates on their careers and opportunities, even if it didn’t mean a role with the company I worked for.
This is when I knew it was time to share my knowledge and experience with all of you.
If you have any questions about the services I provide, let me know here!
