Colleague of the Month 

I started my HR career in March of 2011 when I accepted a Human Resource position at Staples. It didn’t take long to know HR was where I was destined to be. A year and a half later, the HR functions were being outsourced to India, and Stapes was building a transition team. Without hesitation, I raised my hand, eager for the opportunity to support the international transition.

In January 2013, I boarded a plane to India, staying for 5 weeks to assist with the HR conversion. I gained new HR experiences in Training and Development while transitioning and training colleagues on the policies, best practices, and culture of the organization. Upon my return from India, I accepted an opportunity to work in the Benefits Department, until I left the company and joined NEXDINE Hospitality.

This is my third year with the company, and I can truly say: “this isn’t just a company, this is where I want to be”. I am eager to continue to grow and develop in my role within People & Culture at NEXDINE Hospitality.

In my spare time, I love to travel and read. I am currently studying for my PHR (Professional in Human Resources) designation)! I live in Rhode Island with my husband, my father, and two dogs, Scooby and Salsa.
