  • Meet the Owner


    Karen Mokwa, owner of the Pittsburgh South Express Employment Professionals office, previously worked as a field human resources professional for over 10 years.  Her passion was finding “the right fit” for people in various positions and all skill levels.  She partnered with front-line managers throughout the company to help maximize their productivity by offering effective HR solutions.  Prior to her career in human resources, Karen worked in retail management and teaching.  Although she has changed careers a few times throughout her lifetime, her desire to help people succeed has remained constant.  Karen believes that people can achieve just about anything with hard work, determination, and a positive attitude.  She also believes that individuals with transferable skills should consider staffing companies as a route to a new career, as she herself found her first job in HR through a temp-to-hire position with a staffing company.

    Karen has earned two master’s degrees, one for business administration at Georgia Southern University and one for foreign language teaching at the University of Pittsburgh.  She is an active member of the South Hills Chamber of Commerce, the Southwest Communities Chamber of Commerce, and South Park Theatre.

    Our office is located at 4141 Brownsville Road, Suite 6, and provides full service staffing and HR solutions.  We are one of four offices in the market, specializing in traditional temporary staffing positions such as administrative, accounting, data entry, and commercial positions.  If you are looking for a Human Resources company that you can partner with, please look no further.  Give Express a call, or stop by the office.  You will be glad you did!
