Cheri is one of Gorilla Logic’s talented recruiters. While she has been recruiting for companies up and down the Front Range for well over four years, she has spent the majority of that time in IT recruitment, even though she began her career in agency work. Cheri graduated with a BA in Business Administration from the University of Colorado and has made Colorado her home thanks to the mountains and the Broncos. When not recruiting, Cheri enjoys spending time playing guitar and playing with her dog, Bailey.
Jen was born and raised in Colorado although her lack of skill at winter sports wouldn’t give that away. Jen’s professional background lies mostly in the small business operations realm, adding a level of organization and innovation to her technical recruiting strategies.

She likes to study up on various subjects including history, theology, and cultures around the world. Jen is a self-proclaimed expert on how to make a perfect margarita and enjoys the fruits of her expertise after a great day of talking tech.
