Professional Passion

My passion for HR stems from my strong belief in people. We are all capable of much more than we realize. As an HR Consultant, my highest priority is to understand my client’s business, culture and strategic vision. I partner with them by pairing their business expertise with my HR knowledge and skills to determine the most effective approach.

Education and Certifications

Client Work

“Using more than a cookie-cutter approach to HR”

My HR experience has proven that a cookie-cutter approach is not effective because people and businesses are different and they deserve individualized attention. As a consultant for HR Services, I have an opportunity to help my clients put programs and processes in place—both large and small—that can make a huge difference.

Businesses are constantly trying to accomplish so much. One role I fill is helping leaders identify their people priorities, and implement solutions that ensure employees and the business both have what they need. I’m not shy about providing recommendations or feedback, whether it’s a project or question related to:

  • employee relations
  • benefits administration
  • strategic planning
  • policy development, or
  • compliance

Part of my role is to coach and mentor leaders so that they can apply a structure and build a consistent HR approach that works for their team. This is where my broad range of training and background as an HR generalist add value—based on the organization’s needs, I’m able to choose the right method to assist my client in engaging their employees.
