About the Author

I’m the VP of People for Daxko, a leading software provider for non-profits national wide.  As VP of People, I have one primary job. To provide all team members with a rewarding career experience.  It’s that simple. Check out Daxko here to see what I’m talking about.

Also, I hate policy policing.  The HR function revolves around so much more.

I have ’bout 17 years experience in HR. Lots of experience in lots of non-HR jobs too.

I’m a speaker. I’m a singer. I’m a writer for fistfuloftalent.com. I’m self-conscious. I love wine. I love anything cherry flavored. I’m addicted to tv (yah, so what…). I love music. I love my family. I love my cat, Emma (even though she accidentally scratches me. a lot).

I love connecting.

I hold a BFA in theatre performance from the University of Southern Mississippi, hold a Master’s in HR Management from the University of Alabama as well as the SHRM-CP and HRCI Professional in Human Resources (PHR) certifications.  My hubbie, Bo Burke (my Han Solo) and I live in Birmingham, AL.
