Human Resources Specialist in St. Louis, Missouri

Read my blog

I am a Human Resources Professional with experience in recruitment, training, and classification/compensation. You'll currently find me working for the City of Saint Louis, Missouri - working and doing my small part to make this once-great city a better, safer place to live. Formerly, I was a Student Affairs professional, working primarily in the area of Housing and Residence Life.

I spent two great years at the University of Kansas, honing my passion for Jayhawk basketball, and earning a Master's degree in Higher Education Administration while I was at it. With the addition of a Bachelor's degree in Political Science and a minor in Secondary Eduacation from Texas Tech University, there's no telling where I'll stop next!

Rock Chalk. Wreck 'Em Tech. You'll Never Walk Alone.
