This site highlights the "depth of expertise, breadth of experience, future mindset" of my Total Rewards career.
My hope is that the contents of this site showcase the ways in-depth, well-rounded, future-ready total rewards programs can help an organization acheive its strategic goals ... and ensure employees feel that they are the number one, most vital part of the process.
These pillars capture how the total rewards disciplines work together.
Beginning with wellness - also known as "preventative benefits" - the image continues into benefit plans and compensation. Finally, pension plans - "deferred compensation" - aim to address life after work.
The success of total rewards is dependent on great systems - the underpinning of these programs - but equally valuable are creative communications which make these programs accessible to participants.
I have considerable experience in - and a great affinity for - each and every one of these facets!

While learning about the various disciplines in total rewards, I have also programmed systems (Excel, Workday) and developed engaging communication and education materials, including dozens of videos, to help participants understand their benefits.
The best total rewards systems do not spend the most money; they raise the perception of value through intuitive system interfaces and attractive, meaningful communications.

time-management skills, overseeing projects from start to finish.
Being future-ready means to understand trends as they happen, to not settle for mere data analyses but to push for predictive analytics, sculpting compelling stories from blocks of raw data.
Systems and communications are vital to ensuring success in total rewards, and while these are ever-evolving disciplines in their own rite, leveraging them should not be left out of the total rewards expert's skillset.
