Talented People but it’s the character that counts

Monique Dyer

Monique is a leader on our JS Human Resources (HR) team, applying her research and relationship-building skills to talent management – DEI, employee relations and learning and development. She’s a great fit for JS since she began her career just like many of us- studying communications in the hopes of joining an agency. 

Her first job involved customer acquisition for LevelUp, a tech startup company providing rewards for mobile payments. After six months of pounding the pavement in front of restaurants, Monique became intrigued by the idea of helping people in a more meaningful way.  Therefore, when she heard about an opening for an HR position at a social services agency, she jumped at the chance to detour her career path and she never looked back!  

Her job at Trinity Social Services gave her experience in payroll, training, recruitment, and compliance and set her on an HR trajectory that included five years at The Woodruff Arts Center and subsequent work for The Adecco Group, one of the top recruiting agencies in the world.  Prior to joining JS, Monique provided onsite talent management for Impact Workforce Solutions, focusing on employee relations, coaching, and management training, for a tech logistics company. 

Monique graduated from the College of Charleston, where she became a member of, in her words, the best sorority on earth, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.  She started her collegiate journey at Claflin University, with a music scholarship for clarinet performance, but transferred when she found that a dual degree with music, and communications, would not be possible there. 

As the child of military parents, Monique got a taste of big city life from coast-to-coast before she moved to small-town Summerville, S.C. around the age of 10. Today, she lives in Brookhaven—an intown Atlanta suburb that’s a happy hunting ground for Monique’s foodie passions. 

She’s a certified yoga instructor who teaches two days a week and a veteran volunteer, and mentor, with Atlanta’s Cool Girls, Inc. But when it comes time to unwind, Monique leans into music, movies, and suspense novels.
