Best Practice: Gibaud would be the first person to describe herself as incredibly organized. Others would describe her as the glue that holds Templeton Building together.

In addition to acting as HR manager, she ensures smooth customer relations, assists clients with selections, and is involved with scheduling and bidding. But Gibaud doesn’t just confine her organizational skills to her own job responsibilities, she also plays a key role in helping her colleagues stay on-task and realize their potential.
