Career Story

I began my career working for a major Department Store as the Assistant Payroll Manager, in Boston, Massachusetts while going to school at night to obtain my master’s degree.  This position was my foot into the door working in Human Resources.

After graduating I transitioned into a Human Resource Generalist position for a large manufacturing company.  I spent 4 years learning, growing, and developing my skills, with the ultimate goal of leading a Human Resource department. I was lucking enough to have a lot of great mentors along the way to help me build relationships and strengthen my skills to eventually earn a leadership position in Human Resources.  

I joined Apex Technology in 2018 as part of the leadership team. With the support of a collaborative management team, we have grown the Human Resource Department, created a strong culture and have attracted the best and brightest talent.  

Personal Touch

I enjoy traveling, outdoor activities and spending time with my three children and our Chocolate Lab.

Industry Involvement

I am an active member of SHRM Nationally as well as our local SHRM chapter in Jacksonville.
