Recruiter & HR Consultant Boulder CO


We provide tailored Recruiting and HR solutions for your unique company.


We can start with a detailed Risk Assessment of your current company's HR systems and processes, people and culture to determine the right mix of HR services you need.  


We set you up for immediate and long-term success by understanding your strategic plan and developing a phased approach that meets the pace of your current and future business needs.



We do recruitment differently.  Everyone says it, but we mean it.  We have a 93% successful placement rate for a reason! We've successfully hired top talent for all types of industries and position levels.  We've developed our own proprietary recruitment methodology and it works very, very well.   We get to know your business and recruit as if we were an internal team member.



We know that one of the most important aspects of creating culture is in establishing healthy, productive communication.   We provide workshops and trainings that improve communication, collaboration, and innovation. We focus on listening skills, leadership development, and individual coaching.



We've developed our own method for creating and maintaining strong company cultures. This process, called M.A.P., aligns the leadership team, targets the characteristics of the people you want, as well as develops unique systems that promote healthy, winning cultures.  It's a science and an art.  We can apply our M.A.P. method to your business and have immediate results in employee retention and business ROI.



You know your business strategy.  Now try to extrapolate your business expectations coupled with your workforce needs over the course of 5 years.  Do you know the exact number of people you need to hire, which positions and in what order, as well as your talent and skill gaps?  We can help.  We develop 5-year Strategic Workforce Growth Plans that anticpate changes and lead to smarter decision making.



Just need a little help?  We also provide executive advisory support, manager trainings, policy and handbook creation, professional development plans, coaching for Jr. HR reps, job descriptions, change management leadership, performance management systems, and more.



The common mistake most businesses make is providing compensation based on the employee request and if it works in the budget, then great!  But no, this is not a good long-term strategy and it sets up issues in compensation that take years to correct.  We know that good data leads to better decisions.  Let's do an analysis on your company's compensation today so that you can keep your top talent and maintain your business for the long-term.

Our Team

I am a Recruiting & HR consultant and Founder of AlignHR, a talent consulting company that leverages HR strategies to create amazing results for startups and small businesses.  I love seeing the teams I work with thrive. 


Over the years I’ve advised multiple C-Level executives and small business owners in various industries from tech, energy, manufacturing and more. I currently hold a Professional in Human Resources (PHR) certification and have earned a Masters Certificate in Human Resources Management from Villanova University.  I also love good bourbon, gardening, and playing with my dog, Penny.

Allison O' Brien

For decades I’ve been intrigued by human interaction, and the question of “What is it that creates connection and how or why do we withdraw and disengage from each other?” The follow-up question is “How does this affect how ​individuals and teams ​work together and ​also ​how do we show up for the people we love?​​

Human Resources Consultant in Boulder, CO

My genuine interest in people and what makes us tick has paved the way for a career helping individuals and companies transform the way they do business through the standpoint of ​culture, ​communication and conversation.  I believe it’s rare to work everyday in a job that aligns 100% with your core values, passion and life’s purpose. I am incredibly fortunate and profoundly grateful to be able to say, without hesitation, that that is true for me.
