An old friend once told me the greatest challenge in life is learning how to work with people. My time in management reveals there is great truth to this. The challenge is much harder if one puts forth little effort in learning the skills to become an effective communicator.
I’ve always been a bit of a dreamer. As a dreamer, I did not know precisely what I wanted to do, but knew so many areas of life fascinated me. Within me there was a longing for connection and to be a source of help to others.
After years spent figuring out what I wanted to do with my career, little did I know the career I would be best suited for was right in my own backyard.
I began working for Cornhusker International Trucks, Inc. (my family’s business) in the early 2000s. During my summers off in college I worked as a receptionist. I graduated with a degree in Journalism from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. Three days later, I accepted my dad’s job offer and began work as a full time Human Resources Assistant.
After a while, I found great meaning in the field of Human Resources. Eventually I grew into the role of Human Resources Manager in 2012. This field allows me to build connection with others, enhance communication skills, be creative while being organized, and continually strive for improvement.
Helping people advance in their careers so they can live their best lives is my greatest motivator.
A little about me: I prefer the finer, quaint, and quieter side of life. My days are spent learning, researching, organizing things, listening to podcasts, sipping on hot coffee, crafting, spending time outdoors, taking walks with my husband and our two dogs and venturing out on our bicycles.
