Aundi Ramirez

Human Resources Generalis

As a Colorado and Littleton Native, I grew up hearing Lisa Schomp’s voice on the radio and driving by the dealerships. I fell into my first job here because I needed a steady income with the potential to move up and a Rental Assistant position in the Honda Service Department seemed like a great place to start. I was outspoken enough to let my managers know, in every role that I held, that I wanted to do more. Luckily, they saw my potential and gave me the opportunity to move up 3 times over the course of my first 3 years. Once I reached a level that I felt I needed more education to fulfill, the leadership supported my decision to leave so I could finish my undergrad. After receiving my BS in Organizational Leadership, a position opened up in our HR department that I was excited to apply for. Since then, I’ve been given the opportunity to continue to grow and work with all of our leaders to improve the employee experience all while working on my Master’s in Applied Psychology. Schomp has enabled and encouraged my growth and development in work, academia, and life and I’m thrilled to continue working with the organization to drive new and challenging initiatives. 

Aundi Ramirez is the Human Resources Generalist for the Highlands Ranch campus at Schomp. She supports the growth and development of all employees and helps provide direction. She has grown within the organization from her first position in the Honda Service Department and uses her experiences to provide unique insight into the day to day operations of the company. She’s currently working on her Master’s in Applied Psychology from the University of Southern California and fills her free time by going to the gym and catering to her 6 lb Shih Tzu Yorkie, Missy.
