What do you like about this subject?

I love being able to make a difference in a person's professional life when they need it most. As a seasoned HR practitioner, I've experienced first hand the stress and wrath that a layoff, merger, or acquisition can initiate. If my assistance can help someone see the "light at the end of the tunnel", then my being is not in vain.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

I hope to continue to grow, learn, and coach in this profession. It is important to stay abreast of emerging workforce development changes and updates in the job search and interview process.
