I am a HR Professional, Business & People Leader, Speaker and seasoned entrepreneur. I started my career in HR over 20 years ago when I launched my first business wattsnext Group in 2007 with the vision to disrupt the HR industry and create great workplaces across the globe. wattsnext partners with Founders & CEOs of small to medium businesses and fast growth startups to create high performing and engaged teams and cultures.

Having developed and led my own team of HR Professionals over the past 15 years, I know what makes a HR Professional successful, which inspired me to create The HR Linc, a membership community designed to elevate HR Professionals. We help HR Professionals step into a new career chapter: a chapter where HR is a leader, and influencer, a commercial thinker and has the confidence and knowledge to drive change for their companies. This is the membership for HR Professionals that CEO’s want to invest in. Our mission is to elevate HR to have a valued seat at the table.

My personal and professional development is a priority, and I am a member of several organizations including EO of which I sit on the New York chapter Board and am President Elect, SHRM, Collective 54, Business Chicks, HeyMama and Impact Theory University.

I have drawn on this extensive experience in these vibrant and valuable membership organizations to design a membership experience for our HR Linc members that significantly advances both the personal capability and organizational contribution of HR professionals.

In addition, I am the Co-Founder of zzoota, the global leader in leveraging the power of AI, machine vision, IoT hardware, cutting edge software and smart firmware. We digitize moving assets using Artificial Intelligence.
