How I can help you
As a Human Resources professional for over 20 years, I can help you with personnel issues.
I have assisted businesses in developing fair company policies, team building, creating job descriptions, benchmarking salaries, recruiting tips, organizational structure and handling difficult employees. Earlier in my career, I was the Executive Director of a non-profit organization for ten years and I have been involved on the Boards of several non-profits, so I can also assist with issues facing a non-profit organization. Another area of experience is in running a large Customer Service call center.
Volunteering has always been an important part of my life. I ran a Girl Scout troop when I was in college, then became a Peace Corps volunteer in Colombia (and learned to speak Spanish). When I returned, I worked in the public schools in New York City as a guidance counselor. My interest in small business developed early in my career when I ran a small economic development organization in Woodside Queens and later served as the Housing Chair on the Community Board.
I love helping business owners make their companies employee-friendly and productive by focussing on teamwork and quarterly goal development and assessment.
