Ro loves recruiting, and has 20 years of combined experience in military, corporate and executive search recruiting roles. She is the primary lead for McIntyre’s major clients, including manufacturing and Asia outbound services work and, as the company’s Talent Strategist, helps clients make long-term hiring decisions and evaluate related talent strategies. Ro especially enjoys working with engineers and in technical and manufacturing environments, and is constantly learning and exploring the world of “why not” when considering new solutions to old problems.

As a former Lieutenant Commander in the U.S. Navy, Ro spent most of her military career in oceanography/intelligence-based positions before shifting to an award-winning role in engineering and officer recruiting. This was followed by recruiting leadership posts at several companies including The Home Depot and Microsoft, followed by Albertsons, where she built and led the talent management function to include recruiting, succession planning and performance management.

She earned a BA from the University of Rochester on an NROTC Scholarship, and a dual MA in management and human resources development from Webster University while stationed in Bermuda. She is a Certified Personal Branding Strategist and Certified Social Sourcing Recruiter (CSSR).

She enjoys global travel, which first began for her as an exchange student to Peru during high school and most recently took her to Shanghai, where she participated in a professional exchange program with our partners. She’s been to all 50 states in the USA, and plans to continue her travels around the world to all continents.

Through her many journeys and life lessons, Ro has learned to value each and every moment that life offers. She is a volunteer teacher at St. Benedict’s Education Center where she teaches language and job skills to refugees who’ve come to America for a better life and supports efforts to help veterans and older citizens gain meaningful employment. She also earned her certification as Master, Food Preservation & Safety from the University of Idaho and runs a small organic garden. She is always trying to learn something new and is currently learning how to say hello, goodbye and thank you in every language in the Google translator (until we have the Star Trek-like handheld device.)
