Tell us about yourself
As the founder of ThriveWise Solutions LLC, I provide human resources expertise and solutions to enable others to thrive. With a reputation for being an authentic, dedicated, and resourceful human resources executive with diverse experiences and skills, I am valued for my creative problem-solving and business optimization skills and am known for my enthusiastic and dedicated team leadership.
With extensive experience in human resources leadership and operational roles throughout my career, I am frequently sought out to help build and grow organizations, departments, and people. My breadth of experience includes both HR business partnerships, inclusive of coaching and organization design, in addition to my expertise in people operations and project implementations. These implementations include HR systems and tools, projects, programs, and policies.
I have used my distinctive combination of HR business partnership, people operations, and project management skills in a variety of positions for over 25 years. I bring a unique approach to my engagements, and my vision is to be a trusted HR partner for my clients, enabling them to thrive. I have been fortunate in my career and therefore feel a deep sense of personal accountability for giving back to the community. I have provided my services to several organizations over the years: contributing as a Board of Trustees Member, Alumni volunteer, annual United Way campaign leader, Women’s Network Leader, Coach, Speaker, Mentor, Softball Coach, and Homeowners’ Association President.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Becoming a business owner in the middle of a global pandemic and leaving the security of a corporate environment.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
Going from 25+ years in corporate environments with people everywhere to being a solo act and using my own networking advice to create meaningful business connections.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Make a strategic plan: really focus on the purpose, promise, principles, and priorities that you want for your company, and when looking for clients and projects, stick to that strategic plan.
- I thought I knew the meaning of "networking" while in big business, but I really felt the value of network once I was building the business. You are going to need to connect and network out here.
- You know what you are doing, even if sometimes it doesn’t feel like it. Don’t be afraid to try. Congratulate yourself on your small successes.
