What do you like to do in your free time? When I am not spending time with my family and friends, I love to read motivational and HR-related books. I refer to myself as an “HR nerd” a lot. I am also on the board for my local SHRM group as the marketing chairperson. I enjoy biking, walking on trails and watching my kids play tennis.
