The goal with HR is to solve the problem with a workable solution for everyone involved. I love the range of areas we explore from talent acquisition to mergers & acquisitions, to policies and processes. There are so many opportunities to help partners and it is very rewarding to be someone they can come to for the right guidance, assistance/action!
As a kid, I could easily collaborate with different individuals and groups to achieve common goals and I was the one that everyone relied upon. Having been an HR leader for several decades I have a rich history of experiences to draw from. At the same time, I enjoy keeping two (2) HR certifications current which is vital in this ever-changing world. When I’m not working, I’m traveling, watching sports, cooking and hanging out with family and friends. Have you ever been to a rodeo? I’ve been to several. You at least need to go to Cowtown Rodeo in South Jersey!
