I'm experienced with managing, coordinating, quality control, and administration of employee benefits programs including the review and evaluation of job requests for existing and newly created positions. Additionally, I have also provided compensation related leadership in the areas of compensation data analysis, reward systems, pay-for performance plans, collective agreements, and personnel procedures.

D&I is now widely accepted and discussed. I believe that diversity serves a valuable function in organizations. Working with leadership, I've created 5-year plans with D&I goals for overcoming resistance, and gaining acceptance, commitment, and accountability.
Staying up to date with the changing job industry standards is important and should be revisited on an annual basis.
