About Kristina

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

I am a former HR practitioner, current HR advocate. Program Manager and Technical Recruiter by day, HR writer and Speaker by all the other hours. Currently the co-host of #DisruptHRHSV. You can find a little bit of everything here at hrpockets: HR Lessons, how HR impacts my Program Management, 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, certified in HR, touch-me-not, 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!!

I've been blogging for years now.

Please take your time and enjoy my blog.

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

Would your employees hire you?

March 19, 2019

I enjoy a good conference, and I especially enjoy a good speaker who is reinforcing things I agree with in a room full of thousands of people. I realize that means I’m participating in a self-serving conference experience and not necessarily something that pushes me out of my comfort zone and grows me professionally, but […]
