 Expertise and Experience


With experience in a wide variety of industries over the past 25 years, I have consulted in Human Resources for both small and large companies, non-profit and for-profit.  I have worked in jobs across the spectrum of Human Resources, as a contributor to an HR team, an HR-Department-of-One, and a leader of a thriving team. Because of the depth of my experience, I understand the struggles of day-to-day HR management, as well as the strategic and practical issues that arise as organizations grow. (Elizabeth Arnott, Resume)


I specialize in building, re-building and strengthening the HR departments for non-profits. I use trauma-informed HR practices and compassionate accountability to ensure long-term success for all. I use my personal experience as a neurodivergent employee to ensure inclusion and compassion in all approaches. I understand the needs of both the employee and the manager, and strive to bring them together for exceptional results based on the strengths of each individual. My approachable demeanor and candid communication have proven to be catalysts in successfully bringing people together in compromise, conflict resolution and solutions to workplace problems. I have a pragmatic approach to processes and procedures and implement efficient and effective methods. 


I have been certified as a Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR) since 2011. I have a BA in English and graduated with a Master of Jurisprudence in Labor and Employment Law from Tulane University Law School. I reside in the Pacific Northwest with my husband Luke, and our cat Poirot.
