If you want someone to think about human resources so you don't have to, let's work together.
You're a business owner who wants to do the right thing to build your business on a solid foundation. You also want help with managing the complex world of human resources.
Your goals are...
HR can be complicated and my goal is to focus on balance and simplification for you. With over 20 years of hands-on HR leadership roles, I've served a number of different business sectors (manufacturing, engineering, IT, financial services, retail, business services, non-profit). I excel at practical problem-solving, developing creative solutions, and being your trusted HR Business Partner.
As a professional certified in HR (PHR, SHRM-CP), you can be confident that you have a knowledgeable professional endorsed by professional associations that set the standard for HR rigor, excellence and expertise.
In addition to a successful career in corporate HR, I served several years with the Greater Cincinnati HR Association (a chapter of the national Society for HR Management), with my last official board role as President/CEO for this 600+ member professional organization. I have a love-hate relationship with running and have completed over 11 full marathons and over 15 half marathons. My husband Tim and I happily made Raleigh, NC our home in 2016. I'm the proud mom to Zach who is a Division I student-athlete at Liberty University, also my alma mater! Go Flames!
