Shanelle provides human resources expertise to Trusight clients in the areas of recruiting, benefits, compensation, safety, employee relations, and organizational development. She works to understand an organization’s unique needs and craft relevant and efficient solutions. Shanelle enjoys working with the mixture of business issues, human relations, and legal requirements: it allows her to flex her social, analytical, and problem solving skills.
Shanelle has lived and worked in Spanish-speaking countries and interacts naturally with native Spanish speakers. During the time she lived in Honduras, she worked at a Hanes plant (maquila) that exported products to the United States. Shanelle used Spanish solely at the plant in her broad administrative role relating to employees, management, vendors, and visitors. She has also done work-related translation and interpretation over the past eight years for business documents, customer service, and employee surveys.
Prior to joining Trusight, Shanelle had 15 years of human resources and administrative experience in medical device manufacturing.
Fun fact about Shanelle: She can and will feign interest in sporting events if it means she has to travel to foreign countries—she went to the 2010 World Cup in South Africa with her “soccer-crazed” husband to see the Honduran national team play three first-round games.
