FOUNDER & LEAD CONSULTANT
I believe Human Resources and Talent Management are critical levers to achieve social justice and equity in our workplaces. In 2016, I created HR ReDefined, a consultancy focused on designing a “new workplace” grounded in the principles of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI).

I am not your average HR professional.
I have 10+ years experience work with Fortune 50 companies in a variety of fields from Marketing to Information Technology to Corporate Philanthropy. I have worked 15+ years in the social sector, leading teams and coaching senior leaders. What I learned in these environments has helped me to understand how tactical moves combine with cultural solutions to really transform workplace culture.
At organizations like Teach For America and The Mission Continues, I developed talent management systems and workplace practices that centered the needs of team members, limited bias decision-making and fostered transparent communication. Through this work, we regularly saw higher rates of staff satisfaction, increased staff retention and better overall performance.
It is my mission to help build organizations that are diverse, equitable, and inclusive. I am driven by the passion to prove what equity and inclusion can look like─everyday─in the workplace. It is not only a moral imperative, but fair workplaces drive tangible results and create a better experience for all people. Outside of work, you can find me walking and exploring my neighborhood, watching the pros show off on The Food Network and traveling to new states to finish off my bucket list goal to visit all 50 states.
