Emerging HR Professionals Co-Chair
What is your day job:
Human Resources Manager at Festival Foods
How did you start working in HR:
I began my career as a part time HR Data Clerk at Festival Foods. In that position I was responsible for processing many types of documents for our team. From there I really discovered I had a passion for employee relations and helping people learn and develop.
What advice would give to someone pursing a career in HR:
Stay in second gear. Many times in your career, you will feel as though you need to react or respond immediately. Although at times that may be true, most decisions are able to be given a bit of time to think through and process. It is still important to be timely, but responding rather than reacting will only help you grow.
What is your favorite thing about LASHRM:
The opportunity to network with fellow HR professionals, and all of the extra learning opportunities our monthly meetings provide.
Passion outside of work:
My family, friends, dog, and doing anything outside!
What is the top item on your bucket list:
To travel the world with my boyfriend, Clay.
