She has led the growth and expansion of an organization during a rebuild as well as the rapid expansion of a company’s unit count by five-fold in less than six months through multiple mergers & acquisitions.

In three previous organizations, Jamie led the successful implementation of a fully functioning HRIS platform. She is adept at large scale project management, as well as process improvement initiatives. During her time as Vice President of HR, she designed and launched new compensation plans company-wide, and created the organizational compensation pay structure build-out by city, state, job role, and job grade. These plans were designed to reduce administrative burden, eliminate pay errors, and mitigate risk while improving overall employee engagement. In addition, she designed and directed a series of recorded presentations aimed at explaining and simplifying how to earn bonus and commission for both field and store-level employees, which resulted in increased morale and led to higher revenue generation overall.

Jamie is no stranger to the importance of compliance in an organization and has written numerous employee handbooks, company policies, procedures, and best practices. She has considerable experience in all areas of HR including Workers Compensation/Safety, Benefits Administration, Change Management/Cultural Transformations, Senior Leadership Training/Executive Coaching, Recruiting, Retention, and Succession Planning.
