“I joined Canteen in 2015, relocating to Charlotte from Cincinnati to become the HR Generalist. As an energetic, passionate professional, I appreciate the opportunities Canteen has provided for me to contribute to business initiatives and engage in the community. Being involved, making a meaningful difference, continually improving, and living new experiences drive me in my professional and personal life.
I’ve always been outgoing and involved in my community, and I’m super thankful to be a part of Canteen’s community outreach. Since joining in 2015, I assisted with building a home for a veteran through Habitat for Humanity, and was involved in the Charlotte Pride Parade Planning Committee. I am also Chair for the Associate Outreach Committee for Compass Group, which provides monetary and volunteer support for organizations in the local community. Recently, I was named to the Chamber of Commerce Emerging Leaders program, an uplifting experience and an honor that gave me the opportunity to interact with leaders and other young professionals from other companies in the Charlotte area.
It’s funny, originally my career plan had been to enroll in the Master’s degree program in Health Services Administration. But, while working as a Certified Nurse Aide at a transitional care facility, I recognized the value and impact an effective Human Resource department can have. This realization influenced me to pursue a Master’s degree in Human Resource Development and the career path I have chosen.
During my job search before graduation day, I was beyond excited to be selected as Canteen’s HR Generalist. So far, so good, and I look forward to the challenges and progress to come with Canteen. As a relative newcomer to Charlotte, I also continue to enjoy meeting new colleagues and friends, and of course, experiencing the city.”
