I possess over twenty (20) years of professional interdisciplinary experience within a variety of industries in human resources, finance and accounting, writing and editing, research and analysis, project management, operations management, legal compliance, marketing and more. I have been self-employed and employed as a W2 employee as well which has provided me with a very strong foundation for consultancy work.
I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Legal Studies, several specialized certificates and am well versed with a myriad of complicated US federal and CA state laws.
I adapt very easily and am able to move from one project/area to another with little to no notice dependent on priority. I have worked at the senior management level in HR and possess hands-on, in-depth experience in life cycle recruiting, employee benefits, compensation, policies and procedures, employee and labor relations (includes union contract negotiations, grievances and arbitration), organizational changes, employee training, HRIS and payroll systems management, required and ad hoc reporting, EEO/AA, diversity initiatives, employee development and more. I have invaluable experience with highly sensitive and confidential employment issues and am an unbiased individual in workplace situations.
I also have a great deal of experience in accounting, including but not limited to general bookkeeping, fund accounting, accounts payable and receivable, payroll, general ledger, required and ad hoc reporting, spreadsheet production, taxes and other related filings. Related areas of expertise include serving as fiduciary to fiscally manage over $25M in retirement assets and includes 5500 and other related financial reporting. I possess valuable audit experience and have participated in and successfully passed Department of Labor and Internal Revenue Service audits.
I have served as a paralegal providing legal research and analyses, document
production and redrafting (contracts, LLC formations/filings, MOUs, credit
matters, motions/pleadings, corporation/stocks, employment and consulting
contracts, and more), benchmarking and other varied legal responsibilities.
My technical writing skills may be evidenced in the University of California
457(b) Deferred Compensation Plan, where I served as lead researcher and author. I also have produced hundreds of written communications ranging from policies and procedures, FAQs, technical documents, academic papers and other written materials covering a broad scope of subject matter and topics.
I am a trusted business partner and I practice honesty, truth, discretion and ethical conduct in all that I do. I strive to develop and maintain professional credibility and respect with my colleagues. I recognize the value of listening and collecting information when responding to others. I strongly believe in and practice positive people relations. I have a great deal of experience working independently as well as collaboratively. I possess a wider variety of skills than I am able to include in this description. I have experience ensuring the provision of superior customer service in a wide variety of settings; in marketing and advertising; in liaising with a wide variety of individuals; in providing various other operational responsibilities; and more.
Robert Half International has recently rated me as "Expert" in Word, Excel, Access and PowerPoint. I am highly efficient -- yet careful and thorough -- across the broad spectrum of project management.
I offer prospective clients/employers an invaluable combination of up-to-date, varied professional experience coupled with demonstrated business skills. I have consistently received excellent feedback from clients and employers and I am an expert multitasker who knows which priorities are priorities and I strictly maintain my timelines and deadlines with accuracy.
Thank you for taking the time to review my credentials. I am confident that you will find my experience and skills to be highly beneficial to you and your organization.
Very truly yours,
