what inspired you to pursue human resources?
I’m passionate about helping people; they’re the most important part of a successful business.
I thrive on creating strategies to recruit, develop and grow the best talent, to engage and retain employees, and to challenge them on ways to think differently about what needs to be done to be successful in the future. The key to employee engagement is getting to know each individual – what motivates them, why they work here, and what would cause them to entertain opportunities elsewhere – and I truly enjoy it. Over my career, the field has evolved from a transactional department to a strategic business partner, and that is what I love doing every day.
