Human Resources Manager


Train people well enough so they can leave. Treat them well enough so they don’t have to.

Important Skills

Active Listening

When employees come to me with issues, it’s very important they leave my office feeling that their voice was heard and that they were listened to.

Conflict Resolution

Employees are only human, and sometimes they get into disagreements. It’s my job to get these conflicts smoothed over as quickly and cleanly as possible.


Because I’m representing so many people, I always have many projects on the go at once, so being able to juggle these projects and meet all the deadlines is important.
