Human Resources Manager | R1 RCM


Was there a pivotal moment in your life that brought you into your field?

Early in my working career, I had someone close to me experience a horrible work-related situation. I saw how they tried to navigate the resources they were given but ultimately were left alone without support. I realized we needed better resources for employees and started my journey into HR with a goal to be the best I could be.

What is a moment from your career that had a particular impact on you?

I’ve had the opportunity to work with wonderful managers who have taken a personal interest in my success and become lifelong mentors. I can think through each of them and name what I learned and gained from working under their expertise. They share this award with me as contributors to my success.
