At HR Without Borders, we help employees, management, leadership, and organizations recognize and move forward on their opportunities and overcome challenges through a collaborative and common sense approach. My passion has always been to build people and organizations. Whether it’s working with university students, employees, managers, or senior leadership teams, it’s who I am. Rising to the top levels in human resources, I was fortunate to work with business, leaders, and employees across six continents.
