    Learning & Development Consultant

    PuzzleHR

    As a SHRM-certified professional, I possess a solid foundation of knowledge in HR (Human Resources) practices and principles. I have over 17 years of experience in Human Capital Management from account management to sales. Throughout my career, I have had the opportunity to train and develop individuals on my team. This ignited my passion for people development, and I have loved every minute of it!

    During the earliest years of my career, I worked for the largest privately held talent management firm, The Allegis Group, to identify top-level talent. For me, this taught me the foundations of professionalism, a strong work ethic, striving for excellence, and crushing goals!

    Following my time with The Allegis Group, I spent 10 years working for Paychex, one of America’s Most Admired Companies. While at Paychex, I managed overly complex client accounts within the Professional Employment (PEO) division. Looking for a new challenge within Paychex, I shifted my focus toward becoming a sales representative and succeeded admirably. Consistently ranking among the top 15% of sales reps nationwide, I gained invaluable insight into what clients prioritize and how to respond to their needs.

    My background in both operations and sales has provided me with valuable insight into what clients prioritize and how to meet their needs. This has broadened my understanding of the motivations and mindsets of sales and service professionals.

    In 2020, I was approached by PuzzleHR to help assist in establishing a successful client onboarding experience for our new clients. The goal was to ensure a stellar first experience with our service divisions. Shortly thereafter, I joined the Learning & Development Team. My primary goal is to build and facilitate training programs; programs that foster the development of important skills such as emotional intelligence, a growth mindset, effective leadership in times of change, the ability to set clear expectations, and professional mentoring. I take tremendous pride in providing people with the skills and knowledge they need to reach their full potential!

    My career has been marked by excellence and drive within each role I have held.

    Explore how to decarbonize construction through material selection and detail composition.

    Explore how to decarbonize construction through material selection and detail composition. Our session will explore how to reduce the embodied carbon of landscape structures, including pavements, walls, stairs, decks, soils, planting, railings, and other site structures. We will also share resources for measuring and evaluating the carbon footprint of details and materials, including the SITES v2 rating system. 

     Learning Objectives:

    • Explore the results of the CarbonConscience literature review of landscape material carbon factors, including which materials have the lowest footprint for masonry, wood, and metal fabrications.
    • Understand key decarbonization strategies for material and product selection, in support of SITES v2 Site Design – Materials credits.
    • Understand how state department of transportation specifications impact emissions from concrete pavements.  
    • Examine key considerations for specifying low carbon concrete, including how supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs) can reduce the carbon footprint of concrete. 

    The GBCI course ID for this course is 0920029758, providing SITES-specific CE hours required to maintain SITES AP credentials. Participants will need to pass the exam at the end of the presentation in order to receive a certificate of completion. Participants will need to self-report CE hours through their credentials account on https://sitesonline.usgbc.org.

    This session focuses on how to approach decarbonization as designers. Landscape architects are skilled at balancing a complex array of different considerations on every project, regardless of its type or scale. To achieve carbon reduction goals, our design approach must incorporate best practices and strategies seamlessly into our practice.

    This session focuses on how to approach decarbonization as designers. Landscape architects are skilled at balancing a complex array of different considerations on every project, regardless of its type or scale. To achieve carbon reduction goals, our design approach must incorporate best practices and strategies seamlessly into our practice. 

    The speakers will discuss how decarbonization strategies can be integrated with the existing project workflow, highlighting priorities and questions to ask at each design phase - from goal setting and team alignment to design decision-making, and technical oversight. A summary of the best practices to achieve reduction targets will be provided and the speakers will share more about the carbon accounting tools available to support designers. The session will conclude with a brief roundtable discussion of how to make the case for this approach with clients and project teams, then opening up to an audience Q + A. 

    Learning Objectives:

    At the end of course participants will be able to:

    1. Understand when to effectively overlay decarbonization approaches onto existing project workflow, phase by phase.
    2. Learn more about the best practices to achieve carbon reduction through design decisions.
    3. Gain an overview of various carbon accounting tools, and when to leverage their strengths.
    4. Explore different approaches to making the case for decarbonizing design with clients and project teams.
