I am a business leader and founder with a career spanning over 25 years. Throughout my career, I have gained experience solving HR issues that impact dental & medical practice owners and managers. I'm inspired by the idea that “better workplaces make better lives”, and passionate about helping clients successfully handle employee issues and safely navigate the complex and ever-changing employment law landscape. My experiences have led me to my current role as CEO and Co-Founder of CEDR Solutions.

At CEDR HR Solutions we provide custom, legally compliant employee handbooks, human resources support, and team management software for the dental, medical, and wellness industries. Your business is as unique as you are, and the policies you implement should be a reflection of that uniqueness. There is no “one-size-fits-all” approach to managing your team or your practice, even the way that employment laws are applied to your business will vary based on your business’ location and size. Whatever shape it takes, we want to help you build the practice that you’ve dreamt about — and to make sure that your business and personal interests are protected along the way.
