AccruePartners Welcomes Adara Crooks, Emory Ward and Jennifer Carling!

AccruePartners welcomes Adara Crooks, Emory Ward and Jennifer Carling! Adara and Emory will be joining our Enterprise Accounts team as Staffing Managers and Jennifer with our Accounting & Finance team as an Executive Recruiter! 

Adara graduated from Ball State University with a Bachelor of Science in Public Relations and a minor in Communications. She moved from Indiana to Charlotte to specifically join the AccruePartners team and to experience the booming economy Charlotte has to offer. Adara has always enjoyed working with people and building relationships. This is a big part of Recruiting which is why she initially became interested in the industry.  “I love that I get the opportunity to make an impact on people’s lives by helping them take the next step in their career. I know how strenuous the job search can be, so I am grateful that I am able to help make the process a little easier,” says Adara. Throughout her Recruiting career at AccruePartners, she hopes to continue investing in these relationships and developing new ones along the way. Outside the office, Adara enjoys staying busy and exploring her new home by checking out new restaurants, festivals, and breweries.

Emory graduated from Presbyterian College in Clinton, South Carolina, where she majored in Sociology and minored in Psychology. After graduation she moved from her small hometown to Charlotte to pursue a career in staffing. In college Emory had a Sales internship that she loved. Her supervisor there recommended that she look into staffing because he thought she would thrive in the industry and really enjoy herself. She started looking into Recruiting her senior year of college and her search led her to Charlotte and AccruePartners.  Already having close family and friends in the city she jumped at the opportunity to experience the big city life. Outside of work, Emory enjoys hanging out with family and friends, exploring all Charlotte has to offer, and most of all taking care of her rescued Dachshund puppy named Bubby!

Jennifer graduated from Central Connecticut State University with a Bachelor’s degree in English. Soon after she received her Master’s in Education from the University of Florida. Due to her father’s job, she spend her childhood in a number of different places like Brazil, Florida, and France. In search of a place to finally call “home,” Jennifer and her husband moved from South Florida to Charlotte because he accepted a new job (with the help of AccruePartners!) in the area. While in Florida, Jennifer taught high school English for four years. Her interest in recruiting stemmed from watching her husband work with our firm and the simplicity of the entire process. Impressed by AccruePartners, she knew it was the perfect time to make a career change for herself and enter the recruiting world. She enjoys working with people, and, similar with teaching, recruiting allows you to have the ability to help others achieve their career goals. In her spare time she enjoys checking out local restaurants, traveling and hitting the gym!


We’re very excited to welcome these three new Recruiters with such diverse backgrounds to our team!
