I got involved with the AEF as a member of the ANA. In my current role as the HR leader for Mastercard’s Marketing function, it was imperative that we connect with leaders in similar organizations to benchmark and share best practices. As I think about the evolution of not only the function, during times like we have experienced in 2020 further reiterates the importance of how to stay competitive and ensure a dedicated focus on developing talent.

Favorite Professor was Dr. Zenephia Evans from Purdue University. She was my biology professor, and not only was she wicked smart, but I was super inspired to see a Black professor leading the department. Representation matters.
I enjoy most the transformation of the Human Resources function. I’ve been in Human Resources 10+ years now and each year we continue to be more strategic, more thought leaders, and consistently get the opportunity to be the change agents – perfect example is the chaos of 2020.
