SPHR, GPHR

I love my job. Every day I get to work with amazing companies helping them to build their business and increase profitability through the development of effective HR programs.

My background is a solid mix of customer service, operations, human resources & leadership. This is a critical differentiator for iHR that provides our clients with insights that go far beyond the basics.

Having served on several executive teams I have hands on experience in dealing with complex business challenges, creating successful strategic programs, and creating the teams and projects that effectively execute on these initiatives.

While I am very proud of my credentials and accomplishments, I believe deeply that it is my blue collar background and experiences that truly define me and my style. I have intentionally created the iHR culture to be a combination of books smarts and streets smarts. We believe in common sense approaches to resolving problems. We recognize that the world of HR & business is not black & white, but shades of gray. With this in mind we balance our knowledge of HR with the business needs of the organization. Give us a shot, you won’t regret it.
