About Kristina

throw back picture to my first big speaking gig... I've always been nothing but professional.

HR and Talent Acquisition Manager by day, HR writer and Speaker by all the other hours. Currently the co-host of #DisruptHRHSV and State Conference Co-Chair for Alabama’s largest annual HR conference. You can find a little bit of everything here at hrpockets: HR Lessons, how HR impacts Management, free Recruiting tools for those Recruiters on a budget, Parenting woes (and wins), stories of friendship, maybe some shopping and whatever else I decide… I mean, I bring my whole self to work so it’s time to bring my whole self to the blog.

I’m a follower of Christ, Wife, Mom, Blogger, problem solver, Recruiter, certified in HR, touch-me-not, former runner, cat person, Netflix and Hulu binger.

Thoughts here (and on all my social media channels) are mine and do not represent the thoughts/beliefs of my employer. No really, you can ask them.

Why would I name my blog HR Pockets? Read about it in my first post years ago!!

You can also find loads of my thoughts in my blog:

What do your employees even do?

July 19, 2019

My inbox and timeline are consistently filled with employee engagement tips.

No matter how well written or how well thought out these tools are, they […]Read More
