Hiring is hard. Right now, hiring is extra hard for retail and hospitality because shoppers want to shop and dine at pre-pandemic levels. Without enough staff, businesses can’t resume those same levels of operations or services. Shoppers get frustrated with poor experiences like long lines and limited hours. Retailers are inadvertently driving them away from the store and pushing them elsewhere. Existing staff is unproductive and unhappy from being overworked, having an unpredictable schedule, and no growth opportunity, so they quit, and the problem continues. Managers have even less time to go online and post their jobs to a bunch of job boards and wade through a hundreds of resumes, many of whom are not a fit.
We are changing this. Talentdrop's mission is to be a straightforward and productive hiring solution for these businesses. It's simple: we help build pipeline, and we help screen candidates for managers. We do it with a delightful interface and AI recruiting assistant who has time to get to all the things managers and recruiters can't.

Co-Founder / CEO
Hi! I'm originally from the SF Bay Area. I went to Georgetown University in DC for undergrad where I played Women's Golf and studied Classics. I then went to law school at Washington University in St. Louis where I became interested in employment law, which led me to explore careers in HR and Talent. I wanted to get into tech so I pursued opportunities in recruiting, starting at a firm (Riviera) then going in house to Instacart, Snapchat, and Uber between 2013-2019. I left to start Talentdrop!
Co-Founder / CTO
I have the taste buds of a five-year-old, and I'm living proof that a self-professed dog person can indeed become a cat person. 🙋🏻♀️
Joined a team of friends to build a startup in the University, and learning to write code stuck with me ever since. I enjoy listening to podcasts, reading short articles, and the depth of stories in anime. Fun fact, I also create digital art and comics (learned to draw in 2019).
