A Message from our CEO

CEO and Principal Spectrum HR Solutions

Celebrating 20 years of service

My story begins as an 8-year old watching her father manage employees, prepare payroll, plan work travel and meet with the official-looking man in a grey flannel suit who collected monthly life insurance premiums. I loved the smell of ledger books and the scribe of neatly recorded penmanship. I watched my mother organize and manage the household with such love, discipline, and problem-solving ability. I soon rounded up my younger sisters and brothers, formed a ‘kids’ company’ taking over the back porch with all sorts of projects. We sold lemonade, ran errands, and performed household chores no one else wanted to touch.

Through it all, there was an underlying drive to do more, set my purpose and goals, be flexible, responsible and contribute to the greater whole. Little did I realize that these same principles hold true today. As subject-matter experts in human resources we reaffirm our beliefs in the gifts and abilities of every human being. We then share our success with organizations and the people within them.

At Spectrum HR Solutions, we have taken the professional oaths that our practice demands—to not tolerate prejudice, bias, discrimination, or injustice. We have risen above the ‘noise’ and embraced the gifted talents of people regardless of skin color, culture, nationality, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, disabilities, religious beliefs, economic and educational background. It's good business, good for our communities and good for all generations.

We take care of each other so that we can take care of you. In turn you succeed beyond measure.
