Neiha is the founder of Creative Ninja and also sits on several non-profit organizations. As a designer and a recruiter, she brings 13 years of experience working with a range of clients, guiding and mentoring recent graduates, or someone who is transitioning in their career.
As a candidate, I know how hard it can be to land your first job, or transition from one space to another, I have been there. We depend on feedback, and when we don't receive that it can be discouraging, and this is where I jump in. I drive my energy from diverse and inclusive communities, I call them my tribes and keeping my tribes at the core of my research and recruiting process is extremely valuable to me. I’m a lifelong learner, I utilize my design thinking process and background to help connect talent with clients. All in the hopes to make sure the client and the candidate can create some of the most innovative work together!
When not working, you can often find me volunteering or speaking at community events. I’m a certified scuba diver, addicted to coffee, love running, and experimenting with a new recipe; never a dull moment!
