Bronwen started with IFI in April 2018 as the HR Generalist, bringing over 10 years of HR and payroll experience with her. IFI continues to experience challenges and opportunities as we grow, especially in the world of HR. Bronwen is very involved in maintaining state registrations, immigration status & applications, and working with specific locations on hiring and performance management. As a part of the National Leadership Team, she is helping IFI create consistent compensation practices, ensure compliance of federal, state, and local laws, maintain current benefits, and look into future benefit options we can offer staff. On top of this, the HR role continues to evolve.
Bronwen was an exchange student in Germany her Junior year of High School. She lived with a large host family with 5 daughters, attended school, and became fluent in German, as well as the local dialect, Bayrisch. During that year, she also felt drawn to God and placed her faith in Christ. After returning home, she stayed passionate about her faith and all things German. This continued through her college years, where she got a B.A. in German from Miami University in Ohio.
As the demands on the HR Department continue to evolve, Bronwen will be putting the generosity of financial supporters toward the increasing cost of more time and expense. This will aid her as she continues to support all the staff, who are directly and indirectly serving internationals at IFI.
