Keep it simple and call her Val. A shorter name is consistent with her height. But what she may lack in altitude, Val Juarez makes up for with tenacity, listening, and sharp observation skills.
With a degree in HR and 29 years of multi-state HR Management experience, Val is consistently described as an effective leader who integrates integrity, experience, trust and vision into her day-to-day execution and creative problem-solving. She is wired to be service-oriented, with the ability to balance her focus between the internal and external customer needs.
Val’s formal HR career began as a trial by fire… literally. The weekend before her first day of work as the sole HR associate with a government contractor, the building burned down to the ground. Determined to persevere, Val rebuilt the HR department and seized the opportunity to stack up her experience in multiple HR specialties including compliance, staffing, benefits, payroll, policy development, and employee development and training programs.
The HR career journey continued into various industries including retail/telemarketing sales, software development, government project management, and wholesale sales and distribution. Through the years Val’s technological exposure has also evolved, and she now applies her love of solution seeking as Inspiring HR’s Growth Manager, helping to implement new systems, products and services.
