President & Community Leader
Rebecca relocated from Minnesota to Arizona in 2016 for her current role as Director of Talent Acquisition at P.F. Chang’s. She has been in and around the talent acquisition space for 10+ years at a variety of organizations in both full-time and consulting roles. She is passionate about people – identifying, attracting, onboarding and retaining great talent through planning and strategy, competency development, employment branding, social media, mentoring/coaching/training, relationship building/management, employee engagement, and analytics. Her top 5 CliftonStrengths are Activator, Strategic, Futuristic, Connectedness, and Includer. She was involved from the beginning with the very first community in the Recruiters Network in Minnesota, and is excited to be leading the newest community in Arizona!
She loves (in no particular order) cycling, hockey (Go Wild!), meeting people, exploring new places, youth ministry, writing & facilitating murder mysteries, food (and posting pictures of it on social media!), her family, and giving back to others. And Pottery Barn. Much to her husband’s dismay.
