Lavette Bass Norris is a 2015 graduate of the School of Labor and Employment Relations, currently serving as an HR Manager with PepsiCo in their Gatorade Business in Indianapolis.
She graduated with a Bachelor of Business Administration from UIUC in 2011 and began her career in the banking industry. After realizing that her favorite parts of her employment were related to the management and coaching of fellow employees, she returned to campus to pursue a degree in HR from LER..
“Leaving a good career was hard and scary. Leaving it to attend LER, however, was a no brainer. A stellar reputation for the BEST support, intern and fulltime placement, family atmosphere, and challenging and realistic curriculum completely outweighed the fear of shifting careers. I’d do it all over in a heartbeat.”
