I’m the Director of Human Resources at Paterson Paper and serve on committees for Reno Tahoe YPN, the Northern Nevada Human Resources Association, and Northern Nevada Pride. I’m passionate about making amazing places to work, and acted closely with the leadership team at my former employer to secure 5 years of Best Places to Work awards for our company.  I’m excited to do the same with the team at Paterson, where I began working last year, and have already begun to make some major impact!  In addition to my work, I love helping others and meeting amazing people through volunteering.  I’ve had too many great memories to even count in my years with YPN, NNHRA, and NNP. Through those organizations, I’ve had the pleasure of helping others in our community, and supporting and organizing several phenomenal events. I’m honored to be nominated among such a talented group of people and look forward to getting to know more of you tonight; just come see me at the bar later!
