I’ve been working in Human Resources for the last 25 years. I grew up in the Northern Virginia, Maryland area and went to Business School at the University of Maryland. I received a BS degree in Human Resources/Labor Relations and a BA degree in Organizational Psychology. Early in my career, I started out as a headhunter and then moved “in-house” working as a recruiter for a government contractor. Then I joined a Fortune 100 financial services company where I started as an HR Generalist and moved into HR Management.
I was given the unique opportunity to manage/own a defunct small business in Anchorage, Alaska. After 3 years, my team and I hired the right people and we were able to turnaround the company and then eventually sold it. Before selling, I was approached by HGTV (Home & Garden Television) to potentially have our company and team be part of a reality TV series. While we made it through the casting call/audience process, HGTV decided to go in a different direction so we sold the company and moved back to the “lower 48”.
Why I can Help You With Your Human Resoures
Recently, I’ve been doing free lance HR consulting in the Charlotte and Virginia areas.
After seeing how HR consulting is being done, I quite frankly saw many opportunity areas where I could improve upon the business model so that’s why I started my own company. The biggest gap I see in the current HR consulting landscape is the general lack of interest in consultants wanting to be a true business partner with the client.
