We are results-focused consultants who enjoy all aspects of Human Resources and the value that solid practices can bring to both individuals and companies collectively. We offer Human Resources Generalist services to companies who need Human Resources expertise but do not require a full time Human Resources presence.

We offer various solutions including serving as an on-site human resources generalist in a short- or long-term capacity, complementing existing Human Resources teams with project work, and/or setting up an HR function and then training existing employees to maintain it.

I founded Milestones HR, LLC in 2014 and enjoy working with small- to medium-sized businesses. I have been fortunate to work in both a Human Resources and an Operations capacity allowing me to become familiar with the inner workings of a company. I use this knowledge to partner with business leaders on how to best integrate Human Resources as a contributing function of the business.

I've led the Human Resources function from setting up a Human Resources department from scratch to improving an existing function. The results of my work have included:

  • Creating highly functional, mission-focused Human Resources systems & processes.
  • Managing organizational structure through rapid growth or constriction for various disciplines.
  • Partnering with company leaders to implement recruitment strategies reducing the hire time for needed talent and building a future candidate pool.
  • Securing the right hires by identifying candidate profiles, recruiting, conducting behavioral interviewing, candidate selection, background & reference checking.
  • Creating and onboarding new hires to increase the new employee's ability to acclimate and contribute to the company's goals.
  • Designing and implementing real time, results-focused performance appraisal and development programs.
  • Securing and aligning benefit offerings (health, dental, life, disability, 401(k), Vacation/PTO, etc.) with demographic needs of employees, company size, industry and budget.
  • Designing and implementing Wellness Programs resulting in utilization awareness and shifting cultural focus.

Professionally, I believe that Human Resources done well can add significant bench strength and contribute to business outcomes. I partner with my clients by linking arms with them and becoming a part of their team and culture. I hold certifications as a SHRM-CP (Society of Human Resources Management – Certified Professional) and PHR (Professional Human Resources). In addition to being a Member of the National Society of Human Resources Management (SHRM), I am a former Board Member for the Greater Madison Area Society for Human Resources Management (GMA SHRM). 

Personally, I am avid nature lover!  I enjoy the beauty and peace nature has to offer via kayak, hiking, boating, and gardening whether it is solo or with my family. I grew up in Lancaster, WI and attended college at UW-Platteville (go Pioneers!) While I have a fondness for Dilbert comics depicting the evil HR Director Catbert and HR cringing scenes from The Office, I am none of those characters.
