    • What are 3 words you would use to describe LSHRM? Collaborative, Committed and Community
    • What do you find the most challenging about your role in LSHRM? I find that prioritizing all of the things that our board, our members and the community wants done to be challenging because everyone has such great ideas and I'm the type that wants to do everything at once.  I’ve had to take a step back and prioritize what’s most important and what we have resources to do first and then work down the list. 
    • How has LSHRM helped you in your professional development? LSHRM has been instrumental in helping me  to develop into the HR professional I am today. I have several mentors that I have met through LSHRM who have guided and advised me on various situations throughout my career. I also have learned so much by attending the LSHRM Chapter meetings and the KY State and National conferences. There is always something new in HR. LSHRM, KYSHRM and SHRM have all helped me to keep up with these changes and to also grow professionally.
    • What do you wish other people knew about LSHRM?   I wish that others knew how hard our members and board volunteers work and have a good time while serving our community. People should come to a board meeting and get involved. It is so fulfilling.
    • Do you feel the interest in LSHRM seems to be growing or waning. Why do you think that is? Our membership is growing due to our focus in this area in 2019. We are trying to publicize all of the work we do and how HR professionals can get involved and volunteer. We want people to be involved. We’ve recently revived our student chapter so that college students can get more involved as well.
    • What are you most proud of accomplishing during your time with LSHRM? Aside from being elected President this year. I am most proud of the work I did with the SHRM foundation a few years ago when LSHRM was third in the nation for raising money. We were recognized at the Annual SHRM Conference and invited to a special luncheon.  I am also proud that I hold the SHRM-CP.  It's a very distinguished designation.
    • What changes do you think LSHRM has to look forward to over the next year? There are always changes in the world of HR and LSHRM will always be on top of the latest changes and trends. I feel that we are going to have to continue looking at employee engagement and retention over the next few years. Stay tuned for more on this in 2020.

    Join team LSHRM for the Best Buddies Friendship Walk on April 20th, 2019.

    Be awesome and support Best Buddies!

    Everybody needs a friend. But not everybody has one. It can be very hard for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to make connections on their own. So Best Buddies matches them with a peer volunteer to form a "buddy pair". New friends open up a whole new world of opportunities! And donations from people like you and me make local Best Buddies programs possible. Big, small, somewhere in between your support will not go unnoticed. Join us in giving the gift of friendship - register to walk with us at the Best Buddies Friendship Walk or make a donation today!
