HR Business Partner | Talent Management | Leadership Development Manager

Delivering excellence in Human Resources has been the foundation of my career over 20 years in fast-paced, progressive organizations.

My goal is to help individuals and organizations succeed, and I thrive on delivering meaningful results in the critical middle space: translating strategy into action that matters to the success of the business and the individual employees.

I work in a global environment across multiple functions to drive organizational effectiveness, employee engagement, build high performance leaders and teams, employee relations and coaching, metrics, diversity, addressing issues at a systems level, building and delivering local and global programs, leadership development, high potential pipelines and helping leaders build the individual and organizational capacity for innovation and change.

I am an open-minded, collaborative team member with a strong work ethic and demonstrated strengths as a trusted business partner and adviser to senior-level leaders and front-line employees and managers.
