Why did you choose Human Resources as a career?
My career actually started in accounting.  When I worked in accounting, I worked closely with the human resources team.  They were so nice and helpful I often thought it would be so cool to have a chance to work in human resources.  My wishes came true and I was offered the opportunity to start a new career, and 15 years later, I still work in human resources, and love it!

What do you enjoy most about your current role at National Pen?
We are a diverse group of fantastic people at National Pen.   Every day is an adventure, I never know what to expect when I walk in the office in the morning.  The biggest reward is finding a solution – whether it is helping an employee, or for the company.  From a product perspective, I have a better appreciation for pens, and always take a second look at a personalized pen, and wonder, “is this one of ours”?

When did you join SDHR Roundtable?
I’ve been a member since 2008.

How do you use your SDHR Roundtable membership in your current role?
The membership is great for information gathering and networking.    The Lunch & Learn sessions are a great way to learn about new information in our field.  Also the convenience of posting a job opening on the website is a big plus.

Tell us a little more about National Pen.
