Her passion for helping people first drew her to the HR field, and it continues to motivate her to treat each client engagement as an opportunity to make a difference. With more than 8 years of experience, she has worked in numerous facets of the profession, from high-volume recruiting and full-cycle onboarding to creating corporate HR policies and procedures.
Sharmaine started her HR career in the male-dominated security industry where, guided by professionalism, integrity and poise, she recruited key personnel for multiple companies, ranging from entry-level security guards to fire, life and safety directors. She subsequently gained experience in hiring and onboarding active and retired police officers, firefighters, and military personnel; sales professionals in the clean energy sector; and HHAs/PCAs for the home health care industry.
A native of the Bronx, Sharmaine is currently pursuing her bachelor’s degree in sociology at CUNY’s School of Professional Studies. She is a proud mother who loves spending time with her two boys, shopping online (where there are no lines), appreciating the colorful leaves and pumpkin spice lattes in the fall, and rooting on her beloved Philadelphia Eagles (“Fly Eagles Fly!”).
