With nearly 10 years of HR experience (and a long career before that), I believe it's time to put the "human" back into Human Resources. I do that by positioning HR as a business ally and a champion of best practice. My professional passions include diversity, equity, and inclusion work; talent management strategy and execution; strategic organizational planning; and complex employee relations.

What words of advice and encouragement would you give to someone just starting out in HR?

Build your network! Almost everything of value that I've learned in my HR career has been learned not from books or blogs, but from peers, colleagues, and mentors. And until you have a network, feel free to reach out to me.
