"Few people have the opportunity to work with a HR professional that possesses both the tactical and strategic mindset required to tackle the ever changing human capital environment - but I did when I worked with Stephanie. I had the pleasure of working with Stephanie on a number of high profile employee related initiatives during her time at Safeware. Her rich prior experience combined with a strong awareness of the practical application always led me to seek out her counsel and advice. I was particularly impressed by Stephanie’s presence and ability to command a room. She has a natural ability to get people on board with her ideas. No matter how sensitive the issue, she always had a way of bringing a real sense of process and fairness to the issue at hand. As a leader or team member, she is an asset to any organization."

“As the HR Generalist for Safeware, I had the wonderful opportunity to work under Stephanie’s guidance, for approximately a year. In that short period of time, I learned to depend on her for sound advice and creative suggestions. Her knowledge and experience, in the field of HR, is second to none. Stephanie’s approach is always strategic in nature but, grounded in reality. Stephanie provided us with the tools to audit our HR policies, processes, and documentation. This allowed us to identify areas for improvement, strengthening the HR role at Safeware. Stephanie’s approach is that of a mentor, she is kind and supportive, yet she’ll tell you the truth. If you have any need for assistance in human resources, Stephanie, is the one to hire. Engaging HRDesigned4U will be one of the very best business decisions you make!”

Her ability to apply corporate America strategies into the world of non-for-profit Healthcare was impressive and the utility generated still lasts today.”
