Born and raised in a northern suburb of Chicago, Colleen decided a much warmer climate for a few years was in order so she attended Arizona State University and graduated in 2006 with a BA in Human Communications and minor in Sociology. After graduation she came back home to Chicago where she worked in retail for a few years hoping to gain experience to work in their corporate office instead of the store, but that was cut short upon being laid off during the recession. Although frustrating at the time, this caused Colleen to reach out to The Larko Group for temp work while looking for full time jobs. After one temp assignment, Russ Larko called her back into the office to interview for an internal role as a Recruiting Consultant and she was extremely happy to start her career at TLG in July 2011. She feels very lucky to be a part of such a great team! When she is not working, Colleen enjoys trying the newest brunch places in the city and of course cheering on her favorite Chicago Blackhawks!!
