How would you describe your role, purpose or the outcomes you drive?

My team and I serve as the link between the talent community and Salo.  We focus on creating a community and engaging with all Salo talent.

How has your previous work experience prepared you for your role with Salo?

I have had the opportunity to work in various human resource roles in my career spanning from talent acquisition, talent development and HR business partner. I have been involved in the full employee life cycle.  This perspective has allowed me to better coach and guide talent in the marketplace.

How do you achieve business outcomes?

I value being aligned to the vision and mission of the organization.  I can then set stretch goals that are meaningful and can make an impact.  I work to develop relationships with key stakeholders, build a strategic plan and drive to execute.

What impact did your upbringing have on the way you approach your work and life?

My parents pushed me to understand the value of a strong work ethic and a zest for life. They demonstrated this throughout my childhood. I have been able to implement and live by this approach.

How would your friends describe you?

Someone you can count on to listen, engage with, and share a good belly laugh!

List three interesting things about you, but only one of them needs be true.

I once sat next to Bruno Mars on a plane ride to LA.  I studied abroad in Edinburgh Scotland during college. I was named class clown of my graduating class in high school.

What is your favorite thing about working at Salo?

I wake up in the morning excited to be surrounded by passionate and energetic professionals that strive to do their best work each day!
