Human Resources Director

Orlando, FL

Overview

“Don’t stop when you’re tired – stop when you’re done”.   As a distance runner, this is the mantra I follow while running and in my everyday life. There’s always a reason to quit, but who will finish the job if you don’t? As a dedicated professional with excellent organizational skills, strong business acumen and exception knowledge of workplace protocols, I carry every project through to the end with a smile. I believe that you lead people and manage things and pride myself on my ability to empower and elevate staff by providing the right tools and mentoring. I’m not afraid of failure and I don’t trust a perfect person – I think mistakes are an essential part of the learning and growing process.
