Human Resources Specialist

No one cares how much you know, until they know how much you care.
-Theodore Roosevelt

Along with core HR competencies, I engage in creative talent acquisition practices. Hiring and retaining excellent staff drives success for the organization. Our staff continues to be our greatest asset.

I've had the privilege of developing a Human Resource department from conception. As the library's first HR Specialist I promote, foster and leverage a positive service oriented climate through the workplace culture.

Generating new business practices to ensure continued growth and development of staff has been a successful and rewarding endeavor. Fostering a culture of positive change gives room for collaboration and inspiration.

Core leadership responsibilities include being a(n):

* Influential adviser and strategist on Human Resources and Administration services
* Specialist in capitalizing on staff talents, skills, and knowledge; reward and build value
* Change Agent; providing analytical and strategic planning by adding a valuable perspective
* Catalyst in fostering a positive, creative and connective work environment
* Culture building communicator and collaborator; making a difference

I am fortunate to have a multi-faceted background that provides me an opportunity to create and manage a Human Resources department from conception. Collaboration with senior leaders has led a successful transition into 21st century process improvements for the library.
