Why did you decide to reside in Charleston?

I was placed in Charleston as a Department of Navy HR Career Program intern. I preferred Charleston over other bases because of the location and the city.

Why did you join Charleston Young Professionals?

I’m looking for opportunities to network with private sector professionals, expand my experience, and get more involved in the community.

What is the best advice you would give to someone looking to get into your field?

Getting certified is a great place to start. The PHR or SHRM-CP are attractive for companies looking to fill HR positions.

What motivates you?

Accomplishing goals, helping people, and learning new things keeps me motivated. I think many would agree that money doesn’t hurt either!

What accomplishments have given you the most satisfaction in life?

I recently bought my first home.

What three words best describe you?

driven, introvert, sincere

What do you do in your spare time?

I enjoy spending time with my 2 Rhodesian Ridgebacks. My husband and I also enjoy exploring everything Charleston has to offer. There is always something new.
