  • Year I joined Schimenti
  • What I love about construction
    The people of Schimenti are an inspiring group of passionate and driven industry leaders. It is exciting to be a part of an exceptional team that drives initiatives to grow our talent pool, support our team member’s personal development and career aspirations, and provide world-class service to our clients.  Working alongside such a talented group of people and seeing what we can build as a team is what I love.
  • What I do for Schimenti
    I joined Schimenti to lead the Human Resources function seeking to cement Schimenti’s position as the employer of choice in the general contracting space. I’m leading the charge to optimize our talent acquisition efforts, training, and development, grow Schimenti’s world-class talent and take a “People as the Foundation” approach to support our growth strategy.Aligning internal mobility and growth opportunities with business growth is something we have honed in on as critical to my role.  Another main focus has been spearheading the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) sphere by devising a comprehensive plan that underpins our future talent strategy.  This entails attracting, training, and retaining top talent from all sectors and demographics to ensure the best service and results for our clients. I get my juice from seeing us become a better business as we support the growth and development of our new and existing team members.
  • What I do outside of Schimenti
    I participate on a few boards outside of the organization including Forbes Human Resources Council, the Stamford Partnership, and Stamford Innovation Week.
  • What our core values mean to me
    To me, this is what makes us special and distinguishes us as an employer.  It’s part of our DNA and our secret sauce of why we have had success with repeat client business over our company’s history.  We find top talent who are highly collaborative and driven to achieve client goals with a team environment that makes what we do possible. Our competitive nature and will to win fuels our success.  I couldn’t be more proud to be a part of this culture of success.
  • Recreational Interests or Hidden Talents
    I’m an avid sports fan with an affinity for Boston teams. I love live music, cooking, and am an admitted animal lover, which are my stress relievers at the end of each day.
  • Something nobody knows about me
    I am terrified of heights.
