“You own your own success. Don’t be afraid to ask for more either within your area of focus or outside of it. Being well rounded will only further your career.”
I work as a Senior Human Resources Manager within the Government Services line of business. Specifically, I support the Operations and Maintenance division within Government Services.
I think the trait that has enabled me to be successful in my career is my ability to develop and maintain relationships. People underestimate the power of connection and it truly is a game changer! My ability to remain positive has helped me in my career as well.
By accident! I was planning to get my Doctorate in Organizational Psychology but wanted a break from school so I started my job search. I found a job in an Employment Relations department within a large company that fascinated me. I applied and once I got the job, I never looked back!

Working through all of the daily issues while still trying to remain focused on and executing the strategy (day to day vs. big picture).
