understanding beyond just the "key words"

Operations Consultant

Smith comes to
buckinghamsearch with four years of office management and administrative experience. He hails from Atlanta (Hey, y’all!), but found himself in Chicago in 2017 after he met the man of his dreams on Instagram. Smith has a proven track record helping small companies create and implement administrative best practices which he applies to his current role to keep the Buckingham gears turning smoothly.

When Smith isn’t cooking with his boyfriend, or out with friends, you’ll probably find him inside at the nearest coffee shop or outside petting every dog that crosses his path.  

Personal Motto: “Say yes to new adventures.”

Senior Search Consultant

Felicia joins
buckinghamsearch with more than five years of recruiting experience. Originally from the burbs, Felicia moved to Chicago proper to be a part of the city’s hustle and bustle. Felicia earned her BS in Psychology and Marketing from Olivet Nazarene University. She takes pride in her ability to apply those skills to find candidates whose motivations and cultural expectations match even the most specific roles her clients are looking to fill.

As the daughter of two small business owners, Felicia is a champion of “shop local.” She enjoys cooking, touring breweries, playing with dogs (who doesn’t?) and curling up with a good book.

Personal Motto: “Work smarter so you can play harder.”

​Search Consultant

Dakota is in his second year of recruiting at
buckinghamsearch. He earned his BS in Criminal Justice from Baker College of Muskegon. But after dreams of becoming a police officer were thwarted for being colorblind, Dakota decided to put his investigative skills toward solving hard-to-fill job requisitions by finding and placing the right candidate for the role. He commutes daily to Chicago from his home state of Indiana.

While he’s a team player in the office, Dakota is big on individual sports including wakeboarding, snowboarding and rock climbing.

Personal Motto: “Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today.”

Director of HR Partnerships

Shannon brings more than four years of recruiting experience to her role at buckinghamsearch. She began her career in recruiting after moving to the “big city” from rural Kentucky. Soon after, she found her niche sourcing and placing top-talent in HR, Sales and Marketing roles. Before joining the Buckingham team, she worked for a recruiting start-up where she consistently placed record numbers of candidates year-over-year. Shannon earned her BA in Communications from Miami of Ohio.

Shannon is a firm believer in equality for all, and a big supporter of Best Buddies. Shannon enjoys trying new sports (archery, anyone?), hanging upside down in her aerial trapeze class, and traveling the world.

Personal Motto: “The world is too big to stay in one place and life is too short to do just one thing.”
