Elizabeth Fuss Arnott, SPHR  I have been working in Human Resources for 19 years. Since 2011, I have been certified as a Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR).  I have a BA in English and a Master of Jurisprudence in Labor and Employment Law from Tulane Law School. I live in the Pacific Northwest with my husband Luke. I write about HR, non-profits, the art of managing people and Neurodiversity in the workplace. I'm available for consulting remotely and in the Portland, OR area. Please email me at elizabeth@efaconsult.com for more information.
