Broad based human resources professional with over 20 years of experience in family owned to publicly traded companies (250 FTE’s-46K FTE’s). My philosophy to human resources are my 3R’s: Recruitment, Employee Relations and Employee Retention. If you are good at all three, you are helping all stakeholders. I am a strong believer in being a lifelong learner.  I am fully bilingual in English/Spanish. I have a BA from CSUDH in labor and interdisciplinary studies. Currently, I hold two national certifications: HRCI SPHR & SHRM SCP. Planning to pursue a certification in “HR Analytics” and learn more about AI in our space. Originally from El Salvador, I came to the US in 1981. Lived in Los Angeles from 1981-2019. Moved to Bakersfield in 2019, I split my time between Bakersfield and LA. Proudest moment were when I became a US Citizen with my dad and seeing my daughter graduate from UCLA with a degree in Psychology.
