Apex Staffing

Apex Staffing is a permanent placement staffing agency with our primary focus being health care, administrative and professional opportunities in central Arkansas. I’ve been in the business since 2003 and a business owner since 2012.


Best advice I've ever received:

Don't miss out on something that could be great just because it could also be difficult. If you can't stop thinking about it, don't stop working for it.

What makes Little Rock feel like home:

The small town feel with great restaurants and endless outdoor activity options.

A nonprofit I wish more people knew about:

Live Thankfully Little Rock. All profits go to help women and children in crisis right here in our community.

Best career moment so far:

The best moments for me are always the call or email from a candidate that absolutely loves their new job or the employer that raves about what an asset their new employee is to the company.

How I knew this was my passion:

From my first day working in the business, I loved my work. I love meeting new people and hearing their stories. Problem-solving, matchmaking, making an impact, it's all there for me in recruiting and staffing.

Biggest challenges in my career:

Staying on top of the latest technologies to improve the recruitment process so we can screen prospective candidates quickly and more efficiently, resulting in a faster hiring process.

What keeps me coming back to my job every day:

There is never a dull moment, and no two days are ever the same.

Advice for my 18-year-old self:

Life works out if you let it. Be patient, slow down and enjoy each day. And sunscreen, please use some sunscreen.
