Hi, I'm Nia,

Organizational culture doesn't build itself, it's a labor of Love.

I've been in Human resources for 15 years and as a recruiter for many of those years, have seen a lot of organizational cultures. Some good, some bad, some so great, I want to work there every time I walk in, and others so bad, I want to rescue the employees from the terror.


I am currently the Director of HR for Heartland Area Education Agency in Des Moines, IA. I have experience in  the areas of Recruiting, Retention, Employee Relations, Union Relations and Negotiations, Compensation and Benefits, Wellness, and Diversity and Inclusion. My goal is to increase organizational performance by building a culture of love, inclusivity, and "Employees First", understanding that individuals and teams must feel safe and secure before they can grow into a cohesive, powerful organization that makes a difference.


As an HR Director and transgender woman, I have first-hand experience in what it takes to build a truly inclusive environment. I'd love to talk more with you about how I can help you achieve your organizational goals, so don't hesitate to reach out!
