Born in El Salvador and came to the U.S at a young age to Everett, MA with my parents and two siblings. I received my bachelor’s degree in Health Sciences from MCPHS, making me a first-generation college graduate. Right after college I began my career in the healthcare world at Mass General Brigham, where I was immersed in all thing’s “emergency” in regards to the operations of a hospital. From there I moved onto the bio-tech world to an Office Coordinator role and loved the feeling of being a part of a tight knit collaborative team. Then came Monument where I saw the opportunity for professional growth, stability, and the ability to thrive off self-motivation. I am so excited to be a part of this team and help clients and job seekers in the Boston area with their career aspirations! I love spending time with my cat Ollie, finding new restaurants and am oddly good at minigolf.

Caity was born and raised in a town south of Boston where she grew up in a full house of four brothers and one younger sister. After getting her degree in Economics at the University of Delaware, she was eager to move back home to be close to her family and friends. Two weeks after graduating, she got an apartment in Boston and started her first job out of college – at Monument! Caity believes that growing up with so many siblings made her appreciate the importance of maintaining strong connections and relationships, which serves well in the career of recruiting. When Caity’s not on LinkedIn recruiting for positions, she loves eating Italian food and drinking wine in the North end, going on long (slow) runs, and reading mystery/crime fiction.

Nelson has been recruiting in Boston ever since graduating Northeastern a gazillion years ago (fellow Huskies, reach out!), and with Monument since 2003. What Nelson likes most about his job is meeting with clients and candidates, getting to know what they’re looking for, and making connections between them. And when he’s not doing that, Nelson is likely hanging out with his super-human wife and two fun-loving boys, OR attempting a DIY home improvement project that his wife found on Pinterest, OR homebrewing beer, OR watching the Red Sox, Patriots, or Celtics.
Katherine (aka Wilson) came to Monument in 2007 after looking to them to help her find her dream job. After a quick meeting, she simply said “how do I get your job” to her Recruiter and the rest is history. Katherine moved to Boston from Burnt Hills, NY (she’ll give you a dollar if you know where that is) after graduating in 2002 from SUNY Cortland with a degree in Anthropology…don’t ask! Katherine has an overly hard working husband named Sean and two goofball, animated, energizer bunny sons named Dane and Ryker. When she isn’t working she is trying to be the best Mom she can be by spending her time doing homework, laundry, packing lunches and on the baseball, soccer, and football field or hanging out with friends/family and cheap wine.
