Cindy’s career progression and ultimate home with Lucas Group was meant to be, as following college, she began her career as a recruiter with MSI and Beth McRae & Associates, sourcing Administrative Personnel with a focus on contract hires. Spending a few years away from recruiting, Lucas Group lured her back in 2013 and her only regret was not joining sooner.
Cindy studied Journalism at Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, NC. An avid health and fitness advocate, Cindy can regularly be found in the gym, doing yoga or playing a friendly (?) game of doubles tennis. The mom to two grown children and a senior in high school, she no longer cooks meals to sustain the lives of developing bodies and opts to eat out as regularly as possible!
