Professional Summary

I am working full time at Premier Comp Solutions in Robinson Township as their HR Manager. Throughout my career, I have functioned as a true HR generalist, with extensive experience in Employee Relations, Benefits and Compensation, Payroll and Recruitment. Prior to working with ECRM, I spent the past 2 years doing HR consulting for Robert Haft and the previous 17 as a HR Director in the the Long Term Care industry. I hold a Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR) certification with the Human Resource Certification Institute and with the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM-SP).

About Me

I am an avid quilter. I also enjoy gardening and spending time outside on our 15 acres in Washington County where we raised our two children. My husband I are long time season ticket holders with the Steelers and devoted Penguin fans. I have been lucky enough to attend a few Super Bowls and many playoff games for both teams. I also can always be found with my nose buried in a good book both fiction and non-fiction.

Favorite Quote

Nietzche-“what does not kill me makes me stronger”

If you had to pick one meal to eat every day for the rest of your life, what would it be?

I would have to pick a nice seafood pasta dish with olive oil and garlic accompanied by a tossed salad with crumpled blue cheese and an a balsamic vinaigrette.

Where was your most memorable vacation?

A Mediterranean cruise we took in 2008. We spent 4 days in Rome and 12 days cruising with various stops in Italy, Spain, France and Croatia. European history is incredible. In the United States, buildings 100 years old are considered historic. Over there you are looking at sites that are over 3,000! The architecture is amazing.
