As an HR professional, my purpose is twofold: to support the growth of an organization, along with the development of it's people. Thus, I find professional fulfillment when I can:
help others with their job search by sharing tips from the other side of the recruitment process
assist organizations with growing and scaling their teams and HR operations
I enjoy thinking about talent management, leadership, and people operations strategy - especially how it ties to the health and success of an organization. On a more personal level, I enjoy thinking about gender, race, and psychology. One day I hope to merge both my professional and personal interests in a role that is impactful and meaningful.
