Pronouns: She / Her / Hers
Professional Experiences and Accomplishments: I am an HR professional specializing in curriculum development for professional and leadership programs, executive coaching, new hire orientation and on boarding, team building, performance management, succession planning, and employee recognition programs. Over my 20-year career, I have worked in transportation/distribution, banking, retail, hospitality/leisure, consumer services, and nonprofit. I served a full term on the Board of Directors and Executive Committee for Friends For Life and I currently lead the MAGY (Memphis Area Gay Youth) Board Committee.
Committee Involvement: Governance Committee
Fun/Quirky Piece of Information: I auditioned for the Metropolitan Opera when I was 17 years old and made it to the semi-finals which resulted in seven voice scholarships. Also, I had quite a cosmopolitan upbringing. My dad was a Merchant Marine who circled the globe multiple times. My mother is from Guatemala. I spent my first 15 summers there (yes, I’m bilingual Spanish) and my great uncle was president for 3 of those years.
Why do you serve on the OUTMemphis Board of Directors?: I believe in the OUTMemphis mission and want to apply my skills, experiences, and passion to advance it.
