Marc Breithaupt

Marc has had a wide variety of life experiences and careers. After graduating from Arizona State University, he left to tour as a musician with the Glenn Miller Orchestra and travel the world. After that and a stint for graduate work at University of North Texas, he settled in Austin, Texas. For the next 27 years he worked as a performing trumpet player in a variety of settings. As he was married and raising two sons, he decided on a career path in the audio video consumer electronics business and worked for Bose Corporation for 17 years in a variety of sales roles. Once again, to branch out in a completely different direction, he is now working as a recruiter specializing in the veterinarian industry, finding new homes for doctors, practice managers and technicians. He has settled in San Diego after living in Napa, CA for nine years and hopes to make San Diego his permanent home to enjoy the great weather and lifestyle of southern California. His hobbies include making wine, playing golf and enjoying the great beaches and restaurants of San Diego.


Anna McSwiggen

Anna is a recent college graduate from the University of California, Davis with a degree in Psychology and a minor in Human Development. While she absolutely enjoyed her time in Northern California, she loves being back in her hometown of San Diego- you can’t beat the warm weather, beaches, and all the palm trees.

Anna loves to travel and to be outdoors. She spent a month exploring all around Europe after graduation and fell into recruiting when she got back. And has loved every second of it. She loves being able to work with both clients and candidates and is passionate about finding veterinarians the job that is just right for them. Although she is fairly new to the industry, she can’t wait to see what the future has in store for her in the world of recruiting.
