Christina partnered with me to build the people systems, culture and values for Optimum Energy’s next stage of growth. Her greatest value to me was her deep reservoir of HR experience that we were able to draw from as an early stage company to guide us through this stage of our company’s evolution.

Modern Human helps people be and do their best, for the benefit of your organization.

HR for the modern world is strategic and lean, creative and flexible.

It treats people like grown-ups and problems like opportunities. It prefers common sense solutions. It is the opposite of the rules-based Department of No, recognizing that with a clear common purpose and the right working environment, people can accomplish amazing things.

I love the energy and promise of an emerging company; the stakes are high, but so is the level of excitement and creativity. It can be exhausting, but it’s also exhilarating: The chance to dig deep, to innovate alongside everyone else in the company and find ways to make people happy and help them give their best every day –that’s on par with a great powder ski day in my book.
