New HR Director!
CIG would like to introduce our new HR Director Kristen! We are so grateful to have her on our team! Here's a little bit about Kristen in her own words!
"At the beginning of 2022, I made a leap of faith and left the court system after almost eighteen years working for the Commonwealth of Virginia in the City of Norfolk. As a wife and mom of three, this was a big change for our family, but I put it in His hands. I briefly worked in military housing, and then in the month of May, God led me to Community Investment Group. My journey with the company started working in a leadership role for KEV Property Management, then I transitioned to Community Construction for a short period of time. My experiences in different departments of the company have led me to this position as Human Resources Director. I truly feel that I am finally where I am meant to be professionally. I have a passion for employee relations, and listening to, and understanding people is very rewarding. One quote that comes to mind is, “ In order to build a rewarding employee experience, you need to understand what matters most to your people” – Meryl Streep. I enjoy being a listening ear and taking the time to get to know a person. It’s important to me that all staff know that I am incredibly approachable and I take the time to fully understand a situation so I can effectively respond. I’m excited to support our current staff and to add more talent that will bring value to our growing company."
