People Lead at Polaris Solutions, like CPO only for a company not quite big enough for a title that formal :) #PeopleOps
I am a software consultant turned Microsoft evangelist turned software consultant (again) turned agile coach turned Director, turned People Lead. What's a People Lead? I handle all things "people". I focus on fostering an environment where people can truly thrive by attracting, training, and supporting amazing humans here at Polaris Solutions.
My goals include contributing to a culture that values diversity, experimentation, community, vulnerability, and safety. I am passionate about building an environment where people are challenged, feel valued, and can do work they truly love and can be proud of.
When I am not a #PeopleOps engineer, I love playing board games, pretending to be good at CrossFit and boxing, I am an aspiring crafty diva, and an avid gardener. I feel like my husband and I are constantly working on our 100+ year old house in Oak Park, with the "help" of our two ornery chickens Betsy and Gertrude, and our rambunctious GSP named Sadie.
