Kitty (Elaine) Uhlemann grew up in Brampton, Ontario as a first generation Canadian. She spent her summers working for her father’s metal fabrication business - first in the shop, then in the tool room, and eventually, the office. Recruiting for technical industrial positions is thus second nature to Kitty, who has ten years of experience in all aspects of the staffing and employment services industry. From temporary contracts to talent acquisitions, her expertise has even been put to use counselling new Canadians.
While raising her two sons, Kitty taught Elementary School part-time, but now that they're grown she has returned to her roots. Don't let her smell the tool room grease or she'll start reminiscing! Kitty loves the detective work of finding the right people and considers all aspects of the position, company culture, and candidate to select "best fit" every time.
While completing her degree in International Relations at the University of Toronto, Simone often wondered if there was a way to merge her interest in impactful initiatives with her eye for design.
Working in the digital marketing departments of start-up companies and national firms cemented her belief that meaningful work is found when creativity and effectiveness merge. Helping organizations present their best image to the world allows Simone to put her skills to use: by creatively solving challenges, she allows her work to speak for itself.
