About Me

I launched RLSherman Consulting in 2013, after more than 20 years as a human resources director. Having worked for a Software-as-a-Service company, for law firms (both large and not-as-large), and even in the wild world of experiential marketing, I bring a broad spectrum of experience to my clients. Although my work has spanned all areas of human resources, I have a particular love for recruiting.

UPDATE: While on a consulting recruiting assignment at Socrata, I was thrilled to be asked to join them full time, and so I am currently their Senior Recruiter and my work is focused on this wonderful organization.

IMG_0676I have a Bachelor of Science degree from Northwestern University in Speech, which is a fancy way of saying that my undergraduate degree is in theater. I worked for many years in Northern California and Chicago as a professional actor, before shifting my focus and completing a Master’s Degree in Human Resources Management. I moved to Seattle in 1998.

I got to add some additional letters after my name by studying hard and becoming certified as a Senior Professional in Human Resources and Senior Certified Professional (that’s the mysterious SPHR and the new SHRM-SCP), and I continue to work at staying on top of the ever-changing world of HR, with a specific focus on recruiting.
