Meet our Team

OK, here's the skinny on me: I earned my first HR certification back in 2003 and have continued learning since.  We have to, right?  Or else this whole thing can get pretty boring. Plus, each time I learn something it becomes more clear how little I know.  How can you not love that kind of paradox?  

And the deets on bHR: it's the culmination of my professional dreams- to this point.  It's online, so the introverted business person in me gets to meet more people in a way I enjoy; plus the futurist in me has an excuse to stay abreast of new tech.  betterHR also capitalizes on my professional strengths and that of those I love.  So I get to serve you while I create, learn and grow with my peeps! That's my kind of win-win-win.  

Join betterHR today to share ideas and stay informed as we grow and improve throughout 2018! Thanks~
