Desiree Caldwell | Director, People, Culture & Sales

Elite HR Logistics was founded as a means to give back to the people and their communities. I had an idea that I believed in, the knowledge to implement it, and the fire inside me to light it up. This idea has evolved into 22 amazing years in business, and 25 years of industry expertise.

I have an Associate degree in Business Management, I studied Psychology for two years, and I worked in Marketing for seven years before I decided to resign. I spent more time on the road than I did with my family and the lifestyle wasn’t working for any of us.

My personal values became a guidepost in my search for employment. I found a position with a staffing agency that offered the balance I was seeking and work that had meaning. My clients were down to earth and our conversations were inspiring. I joined the California Trucking Association in 2002 to learn more about the industry and I’ve been a member ever since.

Elite HR hires the best people because we see the best in people. We recognize their talent and we know how to ignite it. When we connect great people with respected businesses, we open the doors of opportunity for everyone.

Angela Lewitz | Chief Talent Officer

Each day presents a world of opportunity and adventure when you step back to recognize the unlimited potential it has to offer.

In my 20 years of experience in Human Resources, I’ve witnessed alarming gaps in communication and efficiency in some of the larger businesses I’ve worked with. This, of course, was extremely discouraging in my earlier roles.

Once I shifted my perspective, I began to understand how to use these experiences to my advantage. As the Chief Talent Officer for Elite HR Logistics, I take the time necessary to listen carefully to questions, concerns, and general feedback regarding business operations.

Remaining open to the needs of others fosters trust, respect, and rapport. When our internal staff feels supported and fulfilled, they are empowered to provide the same level of service and expertise to our external customers.

Elite HR is more than a staffing agency; we are relationship architects building hopes and dreams, one opportunistic day at a time.

Hayelei Martin | Recruiter

If you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life.

Customer service and solutions has always come naturally to me. I enjoy meeting new people, finding out who they are, and delivering what they want. This is where I excel. It is the foundation of my lifelong career in office administration and hospitality.

As Elite HR Logistics’ Recruiter, I am extremely passionate about the work that I do and I am thankful to have found a career that I love. I can’t think of anything more rewarding than bringing our clients and our employees together to discover exactly what they are looking for in each other.

Finding your dream job isn’t as far fetched as it may seem when you have the right people on your side. Everyone has a story to tell and a place where they excel. What’s yours?

Elisabeth Graffin | Safety & Compliance Coordinator

Hospitality has always been an underlying theme in the work that I do. Being of service to others is something that cannot be taught; it comes from within.

Elite HR Logistics’ mission and values resonate with my own pursuit to assist and elevate others. I felt drawn to the company, the industry, and the people who make it happen.

I have been specializing in employee management, HR, safety, building maintenance, and State/County/Federal Compliances for more than two decades. As Elite HR’s Safety and Compliance Coordinator, I have the opportunity to support and celebrate the bloodlines of our nation with an amazing team of talented women who love what they do. Our combined passion and expertise keeps our spirits high and our operations running smoothly.

Bringing companies and employees together to benefit from one another and grow as a team is an incredible feeling. I’ve always believed in above in beyond, and Elite HR really embodies the sentiment.

Angelica Ruiz | HR Recruiter & Consultant

Sometimes you find your dream job, and sometimes your dream job finds you. 

I spent five years developing my Human Resources expertise after I obtained my Bachelor’s degree. When I was presented with the opportunity to work with Elite HR Logistics as their HR Recruiter and Consultant, I knew it was time to shift gears and explore something new.

Learning the ins and outs of the trucking industry has been an incredible journey and a welcomed challenge. As the first point of contact for new hires, I am here to provide you with a positive, professional, and informational experience every step of the way. Our team genuinely cares about you and the goals you wish to accomplish. It is important to me that I convey this to our clients and candidates every step of the way.

I am proud to work alongside a talented group of women I can learn and grow with. Wherever you are in life, never stop reaching for personal and professional growth.

Claudia Garcia | Recruiter & HR Consultant

There are some people in the world with career paths that are as straight and simple as a long stretch of road. The rest of us are on an adventurous journey with twists and turns, detours, and a little off-roading.

In this moment, you are exactly where you need to be. As a Recruiter and Human Resources Consultant for Elite HR Logistics, I have the education and experience necessary to provide you with the direction that you seek. My Bachelor of Arts degrees in Political Science and Sociology help me navigate the delicate intricacies of communication, facilitation, and negotiation. I love the work that I do and I’m driven to do it well.

Every time a successful connection between a client and a candidate has been made, each of us moves one step closer to our personal and professional goals. It gives us an opportunity to grow as individuals, but more importantly, we’re advancing as a team.

Breanna Case | Front Office Coordinator

Welcome to Elite HR Logistics! As the Front Office Coordinator, it is a pleasure to be the first to greet you with a warm welcome.

After I pursued my Associate degree in Administration of Justice, I discovered my passion for customer service and digital media. My interpersonal skills can be experienced firsthand in the office, and my content marketing skills are just a click away.

It is my responsibility to guide candidates through the application process from start to finish. As someone who loves to help others achieve their goals, I find this part of my job extremely rewarding. When I’m not in the office, you might find me volunteering at my local church or the Valley Off-Road Racing Association (VORRA).

The next time you are in the area, stop by our office to say hello. I look forward to welcoming you to Elite HR in person. In the meantime, follow us on Facebook and Instagram to stay in touch.

Jeanie Amezcua | Payroll Manager

I’ve been involved in the administrative and accounting field for more than two decades, and payroll management over the last four years. During this time, I always found myself on the ground floor of system development. From testing to teaching, I have mastered a variety of software systems that companies utilize.

When Elite HR Logistics found me, I went through a process similar to our employees before I was hired as their Payroll Manager. This firsthand experience demonstrated the true impact Elite HR can have on a person’s life. I have a great respect for the work that I do and the people I work with.

Periodic interactions with our clients and our employees helps me ensure payroll processing is timely and accurate. I feel fortunate that I am able to connect and communicate with a diverse group of people on a regular basis. Working with Elite HR has changed my life for the better, and it can change yours too.
