I take pride in understanding the goals and objectives of an organization and then aligning the HR strategy accordingly. By driving efficiencies and improved processes, I believe each department has the ability to impact the bottom line and grow revenue. I provide HR metrics that are meaningful to the business, which help the company navigate as they grow. From organizational design, successional planning, and developing empowering cultures, I believe HR plays a critical role in managing a company’s biggest asset – its people.
I enjoy helping businesses attract and retain talent by identifying what sets them apart from their competition and makes them an employer of choice. From implementing DE&I focused college recruiting strategies to developing career paths to implementing training and development programs, I partner with organizations to enhance the overall employee experience.
I am adept at successfully managing complex projects, including HRIS RFPs and integrations. I accomplish this through frequent and clear channels of communication, monitoring budgets and timelines, and effectively managing vendors. I feel it’s equally important to manage expectations within the organization and keeping leadership apprised of progress and challenges.
I strive to help companies build competitive, yet cost-effective compensation and benefit plans to enhance their employees’ total compensation packages. I have deep experience in managing compensation processes, compensation analysis, and evaluating and implementing benefits programs. My background includes working with Long Term Incentive Plans, deferred compensation, and stock programs, as well.
