How would you describe your role, purpose or the outcomes you drive?
My goal is to be an expert resource to Salo employees who have questions regarding their benefits. I strive to improve and streamline the benefits processes at Salo for the internal employees as well as the consultant population and to ensure proper plan maintenance and compliance.
How has your previous work experience prepared you for your role with Salo?
I’ve been in Human Resources for six years, most recently as an HR Generalist. I have helped employees with countless inquiries on their benefits plans and how to better utilize their coverage.
How do you achieve business outcomes?
First I thoroughly investigate the situation or need through questioning or shadowing. Then I determine options and possible outcomes. Once I’ve made a plan, I will look to my team for feedback before taking action. Lastly, I reflect on the outcome to confirm the right solution was chosen.
What impact did your upbringing have on the way you approach your work and life?
My dad owns his own glass installation business and I spent a lot of my childhood working with him. I learned the importance of getting my work done in a timely manner and doing it correctly the first time because if I didn’t, I’d be stuck at the job site late, redoing everything!
How would your friends describe you?
I’m a ball of energy, spontaneous, and driven. I’m always willing to try something new.
What are three interesting things about you, but only one of them needs be true.
I danced with Bruno Mars. I have five bicycles. I camped in a volcanic crater.
