    Terrie Naylor, SHRM-CP, PHR - Program Chair

    Kingman Regional Medical Center - Human Resource Generalist -

    I found Human Resources a little later in life.  When I re-entered the workforce, after some time as a middle school teacher and home-school mom, I was able to secure an HR position at a non-for –profit hospital in Delaware.  It was a great fit for me, so I began my HR journey.  I ended my time there as a Recruitment Specialist.  Upon moving to Kingman 6 years ago, I secured an HR position at Kingman Regional Medical Center. I became the HR Generalist in January of 2015 with primary responsibilities in areas of employee relations.  I joined the NWAHRA Board in 2014 as the secretary, and have filled multiple board roles since.  I truly enjoy helping both employees and managers find a way to make things “fit” and work well.  NWAHRA has been an integral part of my professional development, including providing the study and support I needed to obtain my HR certifications.  The members represent some of the best in Human Resources Leadership and I am honored to be their current president.
