Christy made her way into HR consulting and recruiting in a roundabout way. After graduating Northwestern University in 2004, Christy went into banking and investments as many new grads did back then. Though she enjoyed the business aspect of banking, she found her heart wasn't in her career and abruptly changed directions into wellness and yoga in 2008. From 2008 until 2013, Christy created her own corporate wellness business and found great fulfillment in helping people. It was during this time that she realized she wanted to merge her love of business with her love of helping people, and she then went to complete her Master's degree in Industrial & Organizational Psychology with a specialization in HR from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology as well as receive her PHR license in 2013.
After working in-house as an HR Manager at 2 Chicago businesses, Christy began to see a huge opportunity to help business owners (like her former yoga studio owner self) and use her HR knowledge, education, and recruiting experience while helping business owners and their employees succeed. This combined with her finance knowledge and experience as an entrepreneur creates a winning combination that understands her clients needs and their budgets.
