Jeanette brings with her more than 15 years of experience in Human Resources. Before joining Total-Western, Jeanette joined an underground wet utility subcontractor and was appointed the Chief Administrative Officer where she was a valued member of the organization for eight years, serving in several leadership roles that included the company’s Executive Leadership Team, Secretary of the Board of Directors, and many ESOP committees. While there, Jeanette spearheaded the creation of several employee development initiatives and field training programs.
Before that, Jeanette partnered with her family’s rebar company for several years where she gained extensive knowledge and experience in payroll, A/R, A/P, Human Resources, OSHA Safety Compliance, and the construction industry. Instead of pursuing her master’s degree in nursing after undergrad, she accepted an HR Manager position with a large temporary staffing company in Southern California. She was quickly promoted to Corporate Controller where she partnered closely with the CEO and led the finance, accounting, payroll, administration, and purchasing teams.
Jeanette earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Health and Human Services from California State University, Long Beach.
