my experience

When seeking people-help, I know organizations have many consulting options.  Here is some information about why I'd love to make your short-list.  

I'VE BEEN THERE, DONE THAT.  

  • I've been a leader of teams

  • I've been a leader of HR

  • I've been a leader of culture

My HR and leadership career has spanned the last 20 years, most recently serving as VP of People for Birmingham, AL, award-winning technology company, Daxko. Before that I spent 10 years at one of the nation's largest direct mail organizations, MSpark, serving in a variety of HR leadership roles including Director of Recruiting and Director of HR. 

Throughout my HR leadership career I have led recruiting, training and development, benefits, and employee relations functions.  In addition, as a member of an executive leadership team, I participated in making company-wide operations decisions, merger and acquisitions strategies and, naturally, corporate People Strategies.  

I KNOW COMPANY CULTURE:

Throughout my career, companies I led gained local and national recognition as employers-of-choice including, The Great Place To Work Institute"50 Best Small and Medium Sized Companies" in the US, Achiever's "50 Most Engaged Workplaces in the US", The Birmingham Business Journal's "Best Places to Work, as well as "Best Company for Working Families, and "50 Companies We Admire". 

I LOVE THE PROFESSION AND SHARE THAT WITH THE WORLD

In addition to my HR, Consulting, Coaching and Leadership experience, I am a national speaker, podcaster, blog contributor and have been featured on several leadership and HR management video series. I've been recognized as a Top HR Innovator and Top HR Executive, and have served on  serving on the board of the local SHRM chapter.

And if you are interested: I hold a BFA in theatre performance from the University of Southern Mississippi and obtained a Master’s in HR Management from the University of Alabama. In addition, I am SHRM -CP and HRCI Professional in Human Resources (PHR) certifications, and am a charter member of the Association of Talent Acquisition Professionals. 

MOST IMPORTANTLY: 

I am addicted to TV, love to cry at movies, think wine and a wheel of Brie make a well-balanced dinner, and sing in my car daily. My husband and cat are the Yin to my Yang.
