An HR Director that helps build business by hiring the right talented people and keeping them engaged. Staying on top of projects and making sure all parts get to the finish line at the same time is one thing I do best. The ability to juggle jobs and rarely missing a deadline developed through my professional experiences. It also comes from working closely with all with the very different personalities, activities, schedules and demands. I’ve learned to budget my time and my assets, and most importantly, to be flexible and very approachable to get things done.
