Chanel works closely with her DHR Healthcare Partner counterparts to complement their executive search services with a full suite of professional search services in healthcare. Most recently, Chanel was a consultant in Healthcare Services and Academic Health at a global executive search firm.

Chanel prides herself on tailoring each search to fit the needs of her client, knowing that not one size fits all, and her ability to provide her clients with a diverse candidate slate.

In addition to her search work, Chanel enjoys training and mentoring other consultants on best practices and staying up to date on advances in recruitment technology. The operational aspect of search is very appealing to her, and she is always looking for ways to expedite and improve processes.

Prior to moving into search work, Chanel worked for a leading RPO organization, running full cycle recruitment efforts at all levels for a health system in Washington, DC.

Chanel holds a BS in Business Management from Widener University. She plans to return to school to obtain her MHA, and eventually her FACHE. She was born and raised in the Philadelphia, PA suburbs, where she currently resides with her husband and three children.
