Our Story

After working in Corporate Human Resources for many years, I founded J. PR & Associates with a sincere desire to create Positive People Experiences through Human Resources Excellence and Sensational Leadership.

My passion for HR actually started when I was a sophomore in college.  At the age of 19, I began partnering with very large companies to connect them with high level, quality talent while I learned the inner workings of these corporate game changers. I was young and eager to learn, so I did. When I was not in class, I was working.  This set the tone for the next several years of my professional life.

Over the years, I had wonderful HR Leadership roles with national and international companies that challenged me but also left me desiring to do more innovative things in this great profession. Managing teams of Senior Human Resource Professionals and providing HR services to over 6,000 client companies only heighten my ingenuity.

Relying on my entire body of work, which included Employee Development, Talent Acquisition, Internal Investigations, Leadership Development, Third Party Charges and Claims, HR Training, Employee Relations, HR Compliance Matters, Performance Management and Business Development, I was ready to do more.

I began working closely with Sales, Operations, IT and other departments to develop programs that allow the level of quality service to increased revenue, trusts and reliability for my clients.

 I believe that HR Excellence and Sensational Leadership actively contribute to the overall growth of our clients and the people they serve.

Because HR is often an afterthought as it relates to business growth and increased revenue, I designed J .PR in a way that would allow us to comprehensively analyze businesses, develop customized strategies and solidify effective implementation processes.

 Providing our clients with information is great but focused execution is priceless and productive.    

Understanding that these revolutionary strategies along with the implementation of specific process needed to be shared more broadly, J. PR was born, providing us with the opportunity to change the world of Human Resources with Solution That Work. This was exciting because I knew we could make a beneficial difference, and thank God, we did.

This is what I know: People Success is directly linked to Sensational Leadership. Leadership lays the foundation for a company culture that creates recognizable distinction, unmatched collaborative work teams and a meaningful community of trust and support.

Today, with more than 20 years of professional HR and Leadership experience, J. PR and Associates remains wonderfully excited because our clients include Organizations, Leaders, Entrepreneurs and Dedicated People who are ready to flourish while mastering the change required to exceed their business and professional objectives.

You see, we believe EVERY one of our clients has the opportunity to excel beyond what they have envisioned.

Working with outstanding organizations who trust our expertise, as we partner to develop innovative strategies that align with their core business objectives, is beyond gratifying.

The delight that comes from working one-on-one with brilliantly committed people, who surprise themselves when serving others, while developing THEIR OWN distinct greatness, is invaluable.

It’s not just about our services; it is about YOU. We literally enjoy your success as much as our own. It feels a bit selfish but I love it.

The unique foundation of this firm is designed to serve you by listening generously for opportunities to deliver solutions dedicated to you.

We support the process of establishing solid partnerships to deliver the best service possible, developed on this premise…
