I’ve spent my career in HR and Recruiting, traversing diverse industries and various roles, and I’ve got the stories and battle scars to prove it. I’m currently the VP of HR at Hollywood Casino – Baton Rouge and I firmly believe we can make organizations better when we make HR better.
In addition to writing in this little corner of my world, I’ve also written for Recruiting Daily, Fast Company, HR Examiner, Certified Magazine, SHRM and other sites. I also speak at HR and business events across the globe, conduct webinars, and provide content for various vendors in the HR space.
I’m an Advisory Board Member for HR|Onboard (Melbourne, AUS) and have served on the advisory boards for BlackbookHR, Smartbrief on Workforce, Geaux Veterans, and the Louisiana Business Leadership Network.
I’m Community Manager for HR Open Source; a volunteer initiative designed to foster community and make it easier for practitioners to access peers, knowledge, and resources they need to succeed in today’s world of work. I’m also the content curator (Ringleader!) of the Carnival of HR where we bring together the best posts from the HR blogging community.
I’m an advocate for the workplace revolution. Let’s make the future….better!
