Meet The Recruiter

Isabel Swanson
Senior Legal Recruiter

I began my career as a litigation paralegal and attended law school for one year. I realized that was not the career path I wanted to take, so I started working as a legal recruiter and have been loving it for the last twenty years!

I love working at Burnett Specialists and truly enjoy the relationships I have formed with my candidates, clients, and co-workers.
