“Any company’s success can be directly linked to their most important asset, their people.

Elizabeth Driscoll, SHRM-CP, HR Consultant
“I believe that human resources should help a business reach its goals and set the tone for a company culture that works for them. HR goes about that by thoroughly understanding the company’s business, creating a solid foundation of policies, benefits, and software to support the business and creating an environment for the business and employees to contribute to the growth of the company. I am excited to be able to do that for KMA’s clients.”
Liz has over 15 years’ experience in human resources including recruiting, employee relations, benefit and 401K administration, safety, payroll, leaves of absence/FMLA and technology reviews and implementation.

She holds a BS in Business Administration from Babson College, an HR Certificate from University of New Hampshire and SHRM-CP. Liz is an active member of the Seacoast HR Association and also a board member and member of the Leadership Seacoast Class of 2020.
