How long have you been in the field of Human Resources and to what do you attribute your success?

I’ve been working in HR for over 15 years.  As an HR Professional, I’m constantly enforcing decisions made at the executive table which affects the workforce from top down.  In that time frame, I’ve been blessed to have a small but very diverse group of leaders who have mentored me over the years.  I was taught early on, the difference between “doing the right thing” and “doing what is right.”

What role, if any, do you think networking and navigating the South Florida business environment has played in your success?

With such a diverse marketplace as South Florida, you have a very small window to explain your business solution(s) to decision makers.  Deals are many times made based on who know you.  Successful organizations such as the Miami Dade Chamber of Commerce are prime examples of the type of movers and shakers group a business professional “needs” be associated with.

As a young professional, how do you think you could benefit most from an organization such as YPN Miami and the Miami-Dade Chamber?

As a member for almost three years, I’ve attended many of the networking and training workshop opportunities geared at the professional development of our members.  YPN members are taught and prepared to not only be successful at their current organization, but also afforded with the opportunity to learn from some of the top level executives on the Chamber’s membership roster.
