What led you to be interested in a career in human resources?

After receiving an MS in Reading Education, I utilized my degree on an HR team. From there, I naturally progressed into a human resources generalist role – at that point, I realized I really enjoyed this field and continued with it!

What does your position as HR Generalist entail?

I am the go-to person for any HR related questions! I manage payroll, as well as our benefits. I also recruit employees and I am involved in the employee onboarding process.

What do you enjoy most about working in Human Resources:

What I enjoy most about Human Resources is that I am able to work with everyone at the company, regardless of what department they’re in or what level they are. It’s exciting to have exposure to all aspects of a company!

What is an example of a new strategy you plan to implement to your new role at Maven Wave?

I hope to make Human Resources more visible and easily accessible to our employees. HR related issues can be tough and employees need assistance – I hope to be a resource for our employees to solve these problems as they arise.

What project are you most excited to work on in the future?

I am very excited to develop a more robust onboarding program for our future hires. We are in the process of developing an improved onboarding process to create a positive experience that allows employees to easily adapt to the Maven Wave culture.
