I have always been fascinated by the complexity of people, which drew me to the field of psychology and, eventually, human resources. I strive to use my understanding of how people and groups function to improve individuals’ work lives and organizations’ operations. I was drawn to Urban by the opportunity and challenge to work at an organization with some of the most intelligent people in their fields. Our work can greatly affect people’s lives, and I could not resist the opportunity to join such an organization.
