In my world, there really aren’t strangers, just people I haven’t had chance to meet yet. As cliché as that may sound, I have always been fascinated by the unique qualities that make up each person I interact with. Everyone I meet has different goals in life but many of the same barriers in front of them. What started out as a part time job in my university’s Career Services Office, resume writing and interview preparation became a hobby of mine after watching friends, family and co-workers suffer through the job-hunting process.
My undergraduate years were spent studying communication and developing a passion for training and human resource management. I wanted to learn how to support the companies most crucial asset, it’s people. After a variety of jobs in customer service and sales, I found my home in Training and Organizational Development. My next goal was to complete a Master’s of Science in Organizational Development and Leadership, in order to provide the best service to the employees at my organization.
Whether it was in an official or unofficial capacity, my drive comes from the opportunity to partner with others in their professional development. I strive to encourage and motivate others to be the best versions of themselves and how to best present that to others.
