Both Mimi and Deb have extensive experience working with small and mid-size business owners and managers on a variety of human resource topics, from hiring your first employee through the termination process.
Born and raised in North Carolina, Mimi moved to London, Boston and Washington, D.C. to go to school, work and play. She relocated back to her home state in 2008 and has since focused her time and energy on her family, friends and building her business (in that order).
Mimi has over a decade of experience advising business owners on internal structure and strategies to avoid risk and liability. An attorney by trade, Mimi enjoys the proactive side of management consulting – teaching business owners and managers how to avoid costly legal headaches.
Mimi is also the founder of Soule Employment Law Firm (soulelawfirm.com). She established the Firm to assist small business owners, managers, fellow entrepreneurs and non-profits with legal compliance matters involving personnel issues.
The Firm provides employment law advice and counsel on legal risk to avoid lawsuits, prepares employment-related contracts such as non-competition agreements, and defends employers against employment-related claims before administrative agencies such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Department of Labor, and the NC Division of Employment Security.
Hailing from a large Italian family in New Jersey, Deb moved to North Carolina in 2002 with her husband, Tom, and dog, Diva. Although Deb has lived in the South for over a decade, she has remained true to her New Jersey, Italian roots and, of course, the accent. Deb has more than 25 years of experience working in the ever-changing field of human resources – helping business owners and managers build and manage a strong workforce.
Deb founded DJK HR Consulting (djkhrconsulting.com) in 2008. She established this consulting firm to assist small and mid-size businesses – primarily those without a dedicated HR presence in-house – with human resources guidance. DJK HR Consulting merged with monocleHR in April 2017.
Prior to founding DJK HR Consulting, Deb worked in human resources in the garment industry, the staffing industry and also with a Professional Employer Organization (PEO). In addition to working in a human resources role, Deb has also worked in employee insurance – assisting businesses with property and casualty insurance and workers’ compensation coverage.
When she is not on the phone with a client, you can find Deb cooking a huge Italian meal, with the help of Tom and Diva, and entertaining friends and family.
