I am an experienced HR executive with a decade of leadership at the top of organizations in people transformation and driving business growth. I am a SHRM Senior Certified Professional. Over my career, I have saved the companies I’ve worked for over $1.5M through costs in people operations, doubled the size of a company with a successful staffing strategy, reduced time-to-hire by more than 80%, increased retention and hiring metrics by over 50%, and successfully positioned two organizations for M&A, while successfully navigating through two mergers as Head of People Operations.

I have also personally developed my own HRIS system on the Laravel ecosystem, encompassing over 3.2 million lines of code – it would be fun, they said.

In all seriousness, I enjoy a challenge, and I’m used to navigating through multiple projects and priorities, and navigating through chaos. I thrive in the unknown, and use hope as a driving force to a compelling future that motivates my team to push further and harder than they ever imagined was possible.
