I'm an experienced Human Resources and Career Transition professional with interests in HR, talent acquisition, career transition and job search, and social media. I currently work as an HR Specialist with Lifetouch National School Studios, and I am also the Principal and Founder of Humanus Consulting.
I write a blog, Humanus, featuring my take on HR, job search, and social media--and particularly what happens when all three intersect. I am also the Baltimore Job Search Examiner for Examiner.com, where I write about what's happening in the local job market, as well as offering more broadly applicable job search advice. I am happy to announce my affiliation with CAREEREALISM, where I have joined their Career Expert Panel.
I currently serve in a volunteer role as the Social Media Team Lead for the Human Resource Association of the National Capital Area (DC's SHRM chapter). I am also a volunteer with the Taproot Foundation, where I've had the chance to donate 200 hours of pro bono HR consulting to some great DC-area nonprofits.
