Professional Summary

As a Human Resources Consultant at ECRM, I enjoy working with our many and varied clients offering help for all their HR concerns, from answering a quick question about labor posters to more complicated compliance issues. My specialty is creating and revising employee handbooks. In addition, I work with the rest of our team to create and present various trainings, webinars, and regular articles for our HR blog. Before joining the team at ECRM, I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism from Iowa State University and worked in assorted industries including publishing, energy and manufacturing.

About Me

I grew up in a military family. Though I can’t claim a hometown, I am grateful to have experienced some amazing places with an awesome family. One of my favorite activities now is working alongside my husband on home repairs and renovations. We love it when our empty nest is filled by weekend visits from our sons. When I’m not finishing drywall or painting, I can be found baking, building a puzzle or working in the yard.

Favorite Quote

“I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen — not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.”  — C.S. Lewis

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

Barbecued chicken with roasted vegetables and a fresh salad. And some ice cream would be nice, too.

Where was your most memorable vacation?

When our boys were little, we spent 10 days in Bonaire with my husband’s family, enjoying crystal clear water, perfect temperatures, and uninterrupted time together.
