I'm an Industrial and Organizational Psychology doctoral candidate at the University of Akron and all around HR Guru for The Parker Hannifin Corporation in Cleveland, Ohio. I work with organizations to improve things like selection, compensation, and performance evaluation practices. As an I/O Psychologist, I may also be responsible for organization design and strategy, employee engagement and work/life balance, or training and leadership development. While at one point as an undergraduate at Western New England University in Springfield, Massachusetts I thought I wanted to be a counselor, that is not any part of what I do. I often refer to myself as a Management Consultant to avoid that confusion. I grew up in Vermont and enjoy traveling, fitness, competition, craft beer, most wine, and the occasional country concert.
