As senior writer/editor for HR Magazine, I seek to inform, educate, challenge and inspire readers to grow in their profession. I've spent most of my career as a newspaper reporter. I covered Congress, federal agencies and the U.S. Supreme Court for more than 22 years in the Washington D. C. bureau of Copley News Service.
