My work in operations for Silicon Valley companies has served multiple roles under HR, Finance, Facilities or Executive Leadership. Most recent roles have been short term assignments as the interim Office Manager, Executive Assistant and/or HR support. The assignments were intended to end once projects were completed and roles were hired. Some have been with startups and others with established companies. The assignments were to implement new process improvement, set up new office systems and organize office relocations or set up additional sites. I also was responsible for recruiting, interviewing and hiring my replacements once projects were completed. References available for each of these projects upon request.
