“When I joined PIHRA I was only a few years into my career. I did not know what to expect or what to do. My PIHRA Chapter took me in and assisted me in a many different issues that popped up with my position as a Human Resources Manager. I served as the membership chair for my local chapter and loved to get other individuals excited about PIHRA. I even sat for my SPHR because of the people there that encouraged me to continue to learn and grow!”
