I’m not your typical HR leader.

For the past 20 years I’ve worked at the higher levels of HR leadership for Fortune 50 companies and quirky startups.

I love my work enough to tell the truth about it, even when it hurts. And I’ve spearheaded some highly unconventional initiatives to disrupt it from within.

But it wasn’t until #MeToo went viral that I recognized the ways I myself had experienced and participated in a culture of harassment that had held me back professionally, and made me miserable in a field I loved.

I too have experienced how it feels to leave a great job without another job lined up, because you just can’t take the toxic culture any longer.

If we can’t create safe spaces for our employees, we don’t have the right to talk about anything else. 

This is why I launched HRuprise. I’m here to shed light on all the ways that traditional HR is part of the problem, and to empower employees with HR that works for THEM. My goal is to bring my experience and inside perspective to bear on employee workplace challenges, and to level the playing field for employees who need an independent, knowledgeable voice in their corner.
