Drea is the Director of Human Resources for High Road PEO. She is married with 3 incredible children. As a family they love camping, fishing, and anything else that involves being outdoors. In her spare time, she loves to play ultimate frisbee and dabbles in woodwork. Throughout her various roles of management, teaching preschool, and administrative work, helping people has always been the common tread of what I love to do. This includes connecting with people, finding areas to build them up, or finding ways to help them be successful. She started down the HR path in 2015 with Heart 'n Home Hospice. She fell in love with HR as she learned it was much more than just administrative work, it is about connection. It is connecting employees and the company with one mission. It is about what a company can do to help their employees feel confident, love what they do, and to grow their capabilities. It starts with hiring the right people and getting them in the right seats all the way through processes and education, down to terminations when it is no longer the right fit. Drea feels incredibly grateful to serve alongside a close-knit team of talented individuals who have a similar passion for helping others.
