Years ago, mental health discussions between leaders and employees just didn’t happen.  Thankfully we are moving toward a more empathetic and inclusive time where employee health and welfare are taken much more seriously and there are systems in place to help with most stressful situations.  On this episode of Authentic Living with Roxanne, we are talking with Yvonne Nasri who will share her experience and knowledge regarding HR and approaching mental health issues at work.

A dynamic and innovative executive with a head for business and a heart for community, Yvonne combines her strengths of strategic leadership, human resources and operations to work with leaders to build great workplace cultures through talent acquisition, total rewards programs and high-performance coaching.
