I was working as an Executive Administrative Assistant to the President (my boss). He initiated a global search for a Human Resource Director. After many months of searching for the right candidate, he asked to meet me in the conference room. He pointed to two behavioral assessments and said, “these are my final two HRD candidates and you are one of them”. He offered me the job and I told him I would “make it or break it within six months" and would do everything in my power to be successful. My career in human resources began in 1993 when my dream became a reality. I will forever be grateful for that decision! It launched my career as a leader in Human Resources for a variety of industries including, Industrial Banking and MasterCard Operations, Technology, Sales & Service, Property Management and Hospitality and Luxury Resort Management.
I've enjoyed working with many different people from all over the world throughout my career in Human Resources. There are two characteristics I find in common regardless of the language a person may speak. These are "smiles" and "laughter". You can feel the human connection when you experience these. My opportunities in human resources have made my life richer because of the people I've met, the relationships built and the things I've learned. To me HR is based on "human respect" and when it's present in business the unimaginable becomes imaginable!
