Director of Human Resources
1. Tell us about your journey since graduation.
I went into Hospitality Management with an emphasis in event planning. Shortly after college, I took a job with the local Chamber of Commerce in my area planning corporate events. I met so many influential people and learned so much about business etiquette during my time there. Eventually this led me to accept a physician recruiting role at the local hospital. I planned day-long interviews for physicians, along with hotel stays and local itineraries so they could see the area. I developed a love for recruiting and HR. I went on to receive my masters degree in Human Resource Development. Eventually, I took the roll of Director of Human Resources for Presque Isle Electric. I love that it combines event planning (interviews, training activities, employee events) with the human resource aspect.
