Anna McSwiggen

Anna is a recent college graduate from the University of California, Davis with a degree in Psychology and a minor in Human Development. While she absolutely enjoyed her time in Northern California, she loves being back in her hometown of San Diego- you can’t beat the warm weather, beaches, and all the palm trees.

Anna loves to travel and to be outdoors. She spent a month exploring all around Europe after graduation and fell into recruiting when she got back. And has loved every second of it. She loves being able to work with both clients and candidates and is passionate about finding veterinarians the job that is just right for them. Although she is fairly new to the industry, she can’t wait to see what the future has in store for her in the world of recruiting.
