Summary

I am an HR professional who not only knows her employment law but who enjoys having fun within those boundaries. I believe in making people smile and pride myself on getting back to people quickly. I am extremely polished and professional, taking pride in the level of work I put out and the relationships I develop with my colleagues. I am a supporter of working to live and not living to work.
