Favorite Quote: “Strive not to be a success but rather to be of value.” — Albert Einstein

Fun Fact: I used to ride a motorcycle.

How do you unwind after a long day of work? I love to take my English Bulldog Winston for a walk.

What challenges have you faced in your career, and how did you overcome them? When I started in my career there weren’t many female executives. I have had to overcome this by always being on top of my game and by teaching my male counterparts things that they did not know as it pertains to Human Resources therefore establishing myself as a credible and valuable leader.

What has been the most monumental moment of your career thus far? There have been too many to list.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever gotten? Don’t reinvent the wheel (from my college professor).

What qualities make for an outstanding HR professional? You have to wear many hats in Human Resources. You must learn to work on multiple tasks at one time. You must be a good listener, have empathy and be very well organized.

How have you adapted your HR skills to COVID? I have had to make hard decisions with regard to ensuring that I provide a safe environment for our associates and our guests. We have very strict guidelines that govern when an associate can return to work following a COVID-19 diagnosis.

What are some misconceptions about HR and how do you combat them? That HR is like going to the principal’s office. I build relationships with associates so that they are not afraid when asked to come to HR.

What do you like most about working in HR? I love being able to provide assistance to our associates to make their lives better.
