What a way to start the new year off with a bang! I was asked to attend an HR Roundtable on behalf of the organization I work for. While I was a bit nervous, I was indefinitely excited to meet with other prominent HR professionals and business leaders in the San Diego region and get hear their insight as to how human resources would be impacted by new state laws in 2013. I was so fortunate to be able to hold court with such an intelligent, dynamic and forward-thinking group of individuals and was even more excited that I was quoted in local press!
