One of the greatest values Debbie brings as an independent consultant is her experience working in both operations and human resources in entry level through executive roles. It provides an operational reality filter in which to develop human resource solutions.
She gained 20 years of business experience with the Walt Disney Company; starting as frontline employee, spending several years in operations and human resources management, and completing her tenure as Director for Theme Parks & Resort expansions. Representative work included: leading cross-functional executive team to develop initial four-year master plan for human resources for an international theme park, serving on executive-level human resources steering committee charged with realigning training delivery for entry-level through executive-level management, and developing and implementing a re-alignment of guest service expectations training.
Additional executive level roles in human resources include: SVP HR for a startup casino / resort company in the northeast, working with a private developer and local Bahamian officials to start a school with a unique approach to training impoverished young adults to work in five star hospitality and lead HR role for a real estate development / master planned community going through a period of high growth.
Debbie has been involved in all aspects of human resources strategy and implementation, including: culture building, benefits modeling, compensation, recruiting, training, performance management, HRIS strategy, employee relations, change management and budget planning.
She thrives on working with clients on simplistic, realistic, sustainable human capital solutions.
