About Me

I want to help people love their job.

I'm privileged to get the opportunity to do this in HR at Humana, and I want to put the voices of my 50,000 teammates in front of my own by using methodologies such as human-centered design and service design.

I've also spent a great deal of time reading and researching the philosophy of Work: why and how should we think about work? I've enjoyed sharing what I've learned with my teammates to promote a culture of loving and enjoying your work.
