Barb - HR Consultant

Barbara L. Pemble, MS, SHRM-CP

Founder, Chief Executive Officer

After obtaining her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in management with a focus on human resources and administration, Barb began her career in Michigan before making the big move to Colorado. She then spent over a decade in higher education, working in both recruitment and professional development for a nationally-ranked university.

The youngest of eight children, Barb was born and raised in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, and  proudly calls herself a Yooper. A really good day for Barb consists of skiing or cycling, followed by a nice glass of vino, a Broncos win, and time spent with family and friends.
