Simply put, I love Human Resources because it is the heart of a Company. By attracting, engaging and retaining top talent, I know my HR expertise and efforts make a difference in the engagement of Employees first and to the company’s bottom-line second. And, in that order as there is absolutely nothing I am more passionate about than engaging Employees and letting them know they are valued. When this occurs, everything else falls into place.
Being the Wage and Hour Compliance Advisor for Gotcha Covered HR puts me in both a unique and rewarding position to help business owners understand the federal minimum wage and overtime rules imposed by the United States Department of Labor.
Because of my extensive experience as a former DOL investigator, I help ensure that our clients comply with all requirements of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), whether before, during, or after a formal investigation. I am excited to work with new and existing clients, and I work diligently to ensure that they have the best experience and representation possible.
I love working in HR as I can help other businesses improve their policies and create an environment where their employees can thrive and be valued for their contributions. I also enjoy meeting clients from different industries and the opportunity to create meaningful and lasting relationships.
I am most passionate about helping people navigate the ins and outs of dealing with their work environment and ensuring they are appropriately dealing with their most important resource, their employees and their clients. It is important to treat everyone with respect and appreciate all they offer.
I love assisting companies and agencies and all types of entities in not only following the applicable laws but in being most effective in their day to day operations. If I can offer the assistance they need in any given situation and address all of their concerns, I am happy.
In the 25 years that I practiced law as a labor and employment attorney, I consistently saw small businesses fail to thrive because of avoidable legal mistakes. I founded Gotcha Covered HR specifically to help the small businesses of our community grow and prosper by learning how to be proactively HR compliant – as I love to say, ‘resolving issues in the conference room instead of the courtroom.’
My team of HR consultants has the experience and expertise to meet the needs of entrepreneurs, small businesses, nonprofits, and corporations alike. Our services go beyond the one-size-fits-all approach because we understand each client has unique needs. Together, we create stronger, more vibrant businesses who in turn benefit the greater community as a whole by creating good jobs and healthy workplaces.
