VP, Chief Diversity Officer at Paylocity


As Vice President Chief Diversity Officer, I have the privilege of leading our HR function with an inclusive lens while developing strategies and programs that continue to foster a diverse and equitable workplace. Prior to joining the team in 2020, I spent more than 20 years providing strategic HR support; developing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I) programs; and coaching leaders across all areas of the organization. I’m passionate about cultivating a workplace where employees can bring their whole selves to work and feel safe, valued, and respected. I’m a firm believer that diversity makes us all better.

I’m an HR person at heart. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Human Resources, Organizational Behavior, from the University of North Texas and am a Certified Executive Leadership Coach. My role allows me to leverage my personal and professional experiences to make a difference.
