HR & People Operations in New York

By day, I am an HR & People Operations professional currently living in the New York City area. With years of diverse experience on the administration and operations side of start-up to mid-size corporations, I guarantee to bring an unconventional twist to your team. I have over 9 years of HR management experience including full cycle recruitment (with a focus on high volume), training design & implementation, performance management, employee relations & employee engagement. Co-managing operational logistics and overseeing the US Open Team Training & Guest Services programs for the largest, annually attended sporting event highlight additional skills to my already established background. I am comfortable working alongside executive leadership establishing policies and procedures and the "go to" person when things need to get done with no time for explanation.

From the talent acquisition side, I am a full cycle recruiting strategist who has put together hundreds of teams with thousands of applicants over the years. I excel at building relationship rapport which helps strip away the veneers of both candidates and colleagues. By building trust and developing the right team, the organization's foundation and culture is created. I'm "people-centric" and dedicated to exploring what makes employees feel genuinely happy, successful and fulfilled. Outside of the HR / talent realm, I've co-managed the marketing and operational strategy on two entrepreneurial ventures and worked on a locations team for 20+ feature films.

By night, I’m an artist & entrepreneur, traveler, amateur photographer, career blogger, NatGeo shark follower and an unshakable optimist dedicated to being the best person I can be. I am passionate about a multitude of seemingly unconnected things: sailing, advocate for animals & climate change around the globe, writing, understanding why some people meet, date and have a life full of love many times over and others have difficulty finding that one person. Dating, psychology, entrepreneurship, creativity, spirituality, and education, just to name a few. Oh, and my nephew is a 2x World Memory Champion. #Truth

A couple of my "Must Do-s" in life :

~ Work remotely from an "over the water" bungalow in the Seychelles
