Leaving the practice of law to pursue a career in human resources required a leap of faith; at the time it was a difficult choice, as I wasn’t quite sure where that decision would lead. I certainly didn’t expect that I would find my calling in HR, or have the opportunity to work in other challenging and dynamic fields such as healthcare administration and social services. I certainly never imagined that I would ever return to the legal profession and be able to influence law firm operations and culture. Leading human resources at Dykema represents my professional journey coming full circle: providing the unique ability to combine my legal experience with my passion for learning and problem-solving, and work with diverse and dedicated professionals to create an environment where everyone can bring their full selves to work.
