My name is Renee Mendoza and I am an experienced Human Resources professional located in Southern California. I am also a bad ass mama. Why you ask? Life has come at me hard and fast and somehow, I have survived and am here today to share my wisdom and opinions on anything and everything. A generalist at heart, I have more than 25 years of Human Resources leadership expertise in a variety of industries including Fortune 100 companies and privately held organizations with extensive labor relations, compliance, and organizational development proficiency.

I am in the process of earning a Master's degree in Jurisprudence in Labor and Employment Law from Tulane University. I hold an MBA from Pepperdine University and two bachelor’s degrees in Business Administration and US History from Loyola Marymount University. I have a professional designation in Human Resources Management from UCLA and I am a certified translator/ interpreter in Spanish from CSULA.

Personally, I am a recent widow and mother of 4 wonderful young adults. 3 are working adults having graduated from Fordham University, the University of Wisconsin, and Purdue University. The youngest is a college senior- The Ohio State University. They lived and flourished with me as we dealt with, my husband's, their father's fight with early onset dementia. We got through it and achieved our goals. Bad Assery is in our blood. I am committed to this program and am dedicating this degree to them. Mendoza’s never quit.

Bring on your questions, comments, or concerns, and let's talk- the MJ-LEL is in!!!
