Welcome to the Serious Side of Kathryn

If you have stumbled onto this page in search of more funny stuff about Costa Ventosa, RETREAT! IT"S NOT HERE!

If you are looking for information about Kathryn, the HR Consultant, you have come to the right place.

If you don't want to read all of the nitty gritty below, email me at and we can pick a time to chat about your needs.

I've been a corporate trainer/adult educator for the past 20+ years. I have a MBA and was Vice President of Human Resources at a company with 15,000 employees. I have been told I know my stuff. But more importantly, my training and development sessions are:

  • Completely customized to meet an organizations' needs. I don't use off the shelf training programs unless you ask me to. I create each and every program from scratch
  • My training programs are practical and usable. Adult learners (for the most part) don't give a fig about theory. They want usable information that will make a difference in their work (which makes a difference in their life). All of my sessions are geared towards results-oriented application of knowledge.
  • Engaging, high energy, motivational, and fun. Research has shown when people are enjoying themselves, they learn more.
  • Competitively priced. No need to go to the "big city" for a professional trainer and pay big city rates. I've trained with Fortune 500 companies who have been happier with my services than they have with a nationally recognized speaker.

I can provide you with my resume, a reference list, a client list (partial is below) and anything else you want to know. If you might want to do some training, either at your place or mine (how cool to do training in a winery?) please email me.

P.S. I do other HR work as well...Affirmative Action Programs...Policy Development...Compensation Systems...HR Audits...
