Scott consistently provides insightful comments and advice to me in my role as the senior manager of HR responsible for numerous worksites with both unionized and salaried employees. I am able to comfortably discuss individual scenarios and those with greater corporate effect, and together we determine a plan of action with both short and long term effect. As my responsibilities have progressed and my profile increased, I have been asked to sit on several boards of directors.

I continue to consult with Scott on a regular basis as new career paths open up to me.
