About Ushna

​Hello! I’m based in Los Angeles, California and have been working in Recruitment & Staffing since 2018. Since joining the Shirley Parsons team in 2021, I have worked across all industries, with a focus in the Manufacturing sector. I support our Direct Hire division on open positions across North America. My goal is to fully understand clients' culture and requirements, as well as each candidate's motivations, to make the best matches possible. I take great pride in working with EHS professionals as they are the ones who enable companies to conduct business in an environmentally responsible manner and protect employees from the hazards of their worksites.

My interests outside of work include all things health & wellness, music festivals, and spending time with family/friends + my 2 year old adopted maltipoo, Bean!
