Dana Dowdell

Owner & HR Fanatic

What Do I Bring to the Table?

Boss Consulting was started with a passion to help others, a desire to be my own business owner and a crazy obsession with everything HR.

About Boss Consulting HR

Owner, Dana Dowdell wanted to serve small business owners, a community that doesn't always have the time or resources to stay up to date on employment law and HR compliance. In 2016 she started Boss Consulting HR. 

We consider ourselves people-people and work with our clients to create more positive people experiences. Through coaching, self-reflection and honest conversations, we help employers and employees manage their relationships more effectively all with HR laws in mind.
