Senior Leadership Coach & HR Consultant
With over 20 years of experience in Human Resources, Minnie has learned trust, credibility, and mutual respect are critical to being an HR partner. She obtained a BBA in HR Management from St. Mary's University and holds a Senior Certification through SHRM. Minnie has created and evolved the HR function for nonprofit and private organizations, including Alliance Bernstein, Charles Schwab, Texas Workforce Commission, and the City of El Paso Police Department.
Minnie describes herself as an engaged workaholic that appreciates work-life blend. In addition to being VP of Programs for El Paso SHRM, she also serves on the Big Brothers Big Sisters Board, the El Paso Police Department's Discipline Board, and Police Academy Advisory Board. While she stays busy, the most significant role is being a mom to her two kiddos.
Building the City's first Police HR Division from the ground up, she supported over 1200 employees, was a member of the executive staff, and led a department of 24 civilian and sworn personnel through subordinate managers for ten years. As the HR Director, she oversaw union contract administration, payroll, risk management, compliance, employee relations, recruiting, organizational and employee development, background investigations, and pre-employment polygraph examinations in a highly litigious, fast-paced, and critical environment.
Her values are authenticity, integrity, optimism, humor, grit, and a growth mindset. ValoriHR is an extension of these values and brands. Consulting allows her to meet various clients, design tailored solutions that maximize the value of their Human Capital and accelerate the organization's success. Minnie believes HR should not only deliver fundamental services but create innovative, scalable solutions that add value – beyond the box!
