What do you do?

At Creighton, I lead the human resource function at the Creighton University Health Sciences Campus – Phoenix. Those areas include employee relations, onboarding, employee engagement, talent acquisition and recruitment, performance management and more.

Why do you love your job?

Starting off my human resources career in talent acquisition and recruitment gave me the ability to do something I love — helping people get hired! Being able to offer someone a position can change the trajectory of their life. As I moved further along in my career, I have been able to solve complex issues and create strategy alongside business leaders. I enjoy thinking outside of the box to bring solutions to teams.

Why are you proud to be part of Creighton University?

I am proud to be part of an organization that is making a difference. In my career, I have worked for organizations that were just concerned about the bottom line, and less concerned about the people and the impacts to the workforce. Creighton’s strong values resonate with me.

What do you enjoy outside of work?

Outside of my work at Creighton, I am part of a couple of nonprofit boards and organizations. I love to volunteer and spend time reading and resting.

What do you like about the Creighton health sciences campus?

I absolutely love the campus. It is beautiful, and the technology incorporated in the building, to be able to teach students, is fantastic. I am excited to see the next generation of leaders taught here.
