Human Resources Director
Auslyn James is a SHRM Senior Certified Professional in Human Resources with over five years of extensive experience in diverse, busy environments where efficiency, speed, decisiveness and collaboration are critical. She is committed to developing human resources as a strategic element for business success. Her strengths are in employee relations, recruiting, payroll and benefits, and business process improvement.
After relocating from the small Caribbean island of Antigua in 2007, Auslyn obtained her bachelor’s degree in business management with a human resources specialization at Monroe College in New York, where she graduated with highest honors. She is currently enrolled Mercy College’s HR Management Masters Program.
Auslyn’s HR experience is the true definition of the phrase “started from the bottom now we’re here.” Her passion started as an HR Intern at Planned Parenthood in the Spring of 2007. She then obtained employment with the Jewish Board of Family and Children’s Services (JBFCS) one of the largest non-profit Organizations in New York, as the Facilities/Purchasing Coordinator. However, she knew that this was only a foot in the door. She volunteered a lot of her time in the HR Department and represented the company at many Job Fairs and other recruiting events to obtain relevant HR experience and exposure. Her passion, drive and relentlessness landed her the position as the HR Administrative Coordinator, supporting three of the 145 programs at JBFCS. There, she excelled and with exceptional service and hard work, was recognized and awarded with the Employee of the Year in 2014, by the New York State Office of Mental Health.
Auslyn continued her quest on becoming a consummate HR professional while subsequently working for Air France/KLM/Delta Airlines as the HR Operations Coordinator, responsible for processing payroll and coordinating benefits for over 1500 employees both locally and internationally. While working at Air France/KLM/Delta, Auslyn successfully planned and executed a Payroll Summit which resulted in streamlined payroll processes, a better understanding of each Manager’s role as it pertains to the Payroll function and bridged communication gaps.
Before relocating to Florida in 2016, Auslyn was employed by the Archdiocese of NY as the Regional HR Generalist, responsible for supporting 15 schools (900 employees) in the Northeast Bronx Region. Since relocating to Brevard County from New York mid-2016, Auslyn worked as the HR/Payroll Manager at Behavior Services of Brevard, a small school/ABA clinic, for approximately 2 years, where she was responsible for all things HR, Payroll and Insurance Provider Credentialing.
When she isn’t doing all things HR, you can find her singing or dancing (karaoke style) with her daughter Ava; reading a book by her favorite Authors Drs. Stephen Covey and Myles Munroe; or working on her own book, A Guide for International Students. Auslyn has set a personal career goal of becoming certified in Diversity and Inclusion.
