How do you create extraordinary experiences in your role?
As Xperi’s Human Resources Coordinator for North America, I am primarily responsible for facilitating a smooth onboarding process for all new hires. I make sure all of our onboarding paperwork is up to date and also work closely with our senior HR manager to ensure feedback on our new hire onboarding survey is addressed in a timely manner. I love what I get to do every day for Xperi!

How long have you worked at Xperi and what led you to our industry?
I have been with Xperi for about a year. I previously worked in various HR generalist positions and was looking for a role that was more centralized in one area and a role that was also administrative-heavy. By the grace of timing and after reviewing the job description, it was a perfect fit! I feel very fortunate to be in this role and utilize my strengths.

When you’re not at work, how do you spend your time?
When I’m not at work, my husband and I like to explore LA and try new eateries. We are also always looking for fun places to bring our dog with us, which is so much fun! Additionally, I like attending live sporting events, baking and 90-minute massages.

What is your favorite movie or TV show?
I am actually not much of a movie person, but my favorite Christmas movie of all time is “Jingle All the Way” with Arnold Schwarzenegger. It doesn’t matter how many times I watch that movie, I cry laughing every single time and it’s a pure classic for me.

My favorite TV show is definitely “How I Met Your Mother,” but other honorable mentions include “Everybody Loves Raymond,” “The Big Bang Theory,” “The Office,” “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and “The Flight Attendant.”
