Ursula is our VP, People and Culture. She’s helping us to continue to build our team of super talented diverse people while keeping us competitive with benefits & compensation, and supporting our positive team culture as we grow.

She has more than 15+ years experience in human resources working with varying types of companies ranging in size from Fortune 500 companies to non-profit to small businesses. Her specialty has been in building HR departments from the ground-up and establishing collaborative cultures.

Ursula’s enthusiasm for keeping employees happy and well in the workplace, combined with her passion for healthy and nutritional foods were the driving forces behind her enrolling in Tufts University’s Graduate Certificate program in Nutrition and Communication, in 2012. She was the first HR professional to attend the program and shortly after her graduation, Tufts was excited to open the door to more HR professionals joining their nutrition certification programs. At Tufts, Ursula was able to expand her knowledge of how wellness education and communication can have a positive impact on employees’ health and all around well-being. She also volunteers as the Chairperson of Education and Events for Worksite Wellness of Massachusetts.

Ursula has both, a Bachelor of Science in Marketing and a certification in Human Resources Management, from Bentley University. She has a great love for the arts and has education in graphic design, art and art history from Boston College, New England School of Art and Design, and Mass Art.

When not spearheading cool new HR programs for us, you can find Ursula out running, practicing yoga, and much to the chagrin of her three boys, touting the phytochemical compounds and benefits of all sorts of fruits and vegetables.
