    Kristen Correira

    Light Industrial Employment Specialist

    Kristen came to us from New York in early 2021 with over three years' experience in the Express system. She started at the front desk learning the basics of the office environment but soon had the position mastered and was promoted into the Sales department. Although successful, she missed speaking with job seekers and decided to move into Recruiting. Kristen is now one of our Light Industrial Employment Specialists putting new people to work each week! Before getting started with Express, Kristen spent six years managing franchise restaurant chains where she got her knack for finding local talent in her community and helping them grow into their career path. In her free time, she enjoys making jewelry and candles for her online business, hiking and spending time with loved ones.
