What is the best thing about being in the staffing industry? What motivates you?
I enjoy building relationships with both candidates and clients. It is a very rewarding to help someone find their "dream job" or to help someone that is unemployed find a great opportunity. The excitement in their voice and the smile on their face when we help them land a great position is priceless. I also love working with my team at Delta Dallas.

She is a top producer at Delta Dallas as well as the state and local level and has been recognized many times over for her excellence and production levels. Dana has earned dual industry certifications as a Certified Personnel Consultant and a Certified Temporary Specialist affording her the ability to work with clients not just as a recruiter, but at a consultative level. She is the ultimate team player, and although her tenure at Delta Dallas is 10 years and counting, she would never ask a team player to do something she wouldn't be willing to do. Among her peers, Dana is known as an experienced professional with an amazing memory and the willingness to help out when needed. It's no coincidence that her nickname at Delta Dallas is "Yoda". In 2010, Dana was inducted into the Delta Dallas Partner Circle which was the inaugural induction for this honor meaning Dana was one of the first in Delta Dallas history to receive this honor.

Changing people's lives every day. Whether I've made a client's life easier by finding them the perfect candidate or the candidate's life easier by finding them the perfect job – my work is immensely satisfying. I'm motivated by the success stories from both clients and candidates. There's nothing better than a hug from a candidate with a smiling, "Thank you!" involved.

What makes you unique?
I'm a certified goofball! Seriously – there are two things that stand out when I describe myself. One, I can talk to a brick wall, and probably make it talk back. Two, I have an amazing memory for people, places and things. There's a reason my nickname is "Yoda"!

Patti Brown

Patti Brown joined the Delta Dallas team in 2014 and specializes in placing Personal Assistants and Executive Assistants at the “C-level”. Shortly after graduating from college, Patti visited a staffing firm in search of work and they hired her. She quickly found a niche in placing “high-end” Executive Assistants and Personal Assistants and truly fell in love with the practice. Patti loves this field of work because she is addicted to the challenge of finding the right assistant for each and every one of her clients. Patti truly loves the relationships she is able to develop and is very protective of both her clients and candidates interests.

What is the best thing about being in the Staffing Industry? What motivates you?
The best thing about being in the staffing industry is getting to uncover what makes both my clients and my candidates tick. People are the most fascinating thing in the world to me and I love peeling back their layers to discover who they really are.

What makes you unique?
I started recruiting Executive Assistants and Personal Assistants in Dallas when I was 23 years old. My clients and candidates were initially apprehensive about working with a consultant who was so young, which is understandable considering the level of searches I was involved in. I realized that in order to be taken seriously I not only had to work harder and produce better results, but I also had to operate within the absolute strictest defines of professionalism, confidentiality, and integrity. Establishing that reputation was key in earning the trust of the people I was doing business with, and it has been my guiding measure in every search since.

What do you like to do when you are not at work?
I am always reading 5 books at once, I love yoga, and I love hanging out with my husband and son. I also love to travel and explore new cultures. I firmly believe that traveling is one of the best investments a person can make in themselves!

What made you decide to become a recruiter?
I decided to become a recruiter because of my prior experience recruiting for various student organizations while I was at UNT, especially my fraternity Kappa Sigma. What attracted me to the staffing industry is the ability to consult a wider variety of candidates and hiring managers across multiple companies than the corporate environment, and the opportunity to broaden my knowledge about technologies and the IT industry.

The best thing about being in the staffing industry is getting to meet people from all walks of life. The satisfaction of placing candidates into opportunities that are better for them and their families is what motivates me.
