About Me

I am a Milwaukee, WI-based Human Resources Professional with 6+ years of progressive HR experience in the Manufacturing, Healthcare, and Financial Technology industries. Currently specializing in Employee Relations, I have provided additional expertise in Leave Administration (FMLA/Disability), Worker’s Compensation, Recruiting, Training, and Onboarding in corporate and multi-site support settings. In 2013 I obtained a Bachelors of Business Administration in Human Resource Management (Psychology Minor) from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater and in early 2018 began coursework towards my Masters of Professional Studies in Human Resources and Employment Relations with Penn State University.

Now that we have my LinkedIn summary out of the way…my objective is to provide  relatable career content that anyone can put to use.

In my free time I enjoy following Wisconsin sports, lounging around with my two cats (Oodles & Noodles), and telling (mostly terrible) jokes.
