Senior Recruiting Consultant
Annette was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, relocating to Chicago over 20 years ago. She attended Pace University where she studied Marketing. Annette’s professional background began in Human Resources at a Fortune 500 firm. She also worked in a political office supporting operations for the Speaker of New York City Assembly.
Annette began her career in staffing in 1991 — a year after she moved to Chicago. The recruiter who placed her at her first position started her own firm and asked Annette to work with her. From 2000 through 2004, she operated her own staffing firm before joining The Larko Group.
Annette resides in Wilmette with her husband and is passionate about philanthropy. For 15 years, she has been completely dedicated to The University of Chicago Cancer Research Foundation where she held office as President, Auction and Benefit Chair.
