Community Relations Director
Hometown: Waterloo, IL
As the Community Relations Director, I drive our external people strategy. Our external focus is on our communities, our partnerships, and the clients and job seekers we support. We love the areas that we live and work, and we strive to help those we come into contact with. My job is truly fulfilling because of the exceptional service we provide to others and the wonderful people I am surrounded by each day.
My journey in recruiting began as a Human Resources Business Partner. Throughout my career, I have been very passionate about developing and working on high-performing teams. As I developed in HR, I learned the importance of assessing talent and strategically placing individuals into the “right” roles. Sometimes these are roles that a person has not yet applied for! This is why recruiters and hiring managers are so special.
I have been a resident of Arizona for almost 10 years. While I am grateful for my Mid-West upbringing, Arizona has stolen my heart. I met the love of my life here. We have two children, two cats, and one quite popular bulldog.
“I don’t expect trust to be earned. I give it to my partners in the workplace and expect that they will foster it. Trust is the foundation for internal and external partnerships.”
“Doing what is best for a client and always being honest; having the client’s best interest at heart.”
“Community Partnership is about having a servant leadership mindset. We seek to positively impact our community and believe that we are stronger together.”
“I believe in building relationships, asking questions and soliciting feedback from my partners. I learn from others constantly with these techniques. I love getting older because I feel like I am continually molding into the best version of myself! This growth would not happen without the help, guidance, and support that I get from others.”
